Oldies But Goodies Cocker Rescue


Baby | Female | Adopted

Say hello to our new arrival, a precious baby girl named Emma.  Emma is a sweet, playful puppy who is actively working on her house-training.  She was born on 1/5/16, and she weighed 9.5# at her 12-week vet visit.  We estimate that she'll grow up to weigh just about 20#.

Before applying for a puppy, please carefully consider the following issues.  Will someone be home every 3-4 hours to let the puppy outside?  Our general rule of thumb is that if a dog needs to be crated more than 6 hours/day total, then that dog is the wrong one for the person's lifestyle. Please consider Puppy Kindergarten classes - it is never too early to start training.  More dogs under the age of 3 years are euthanized for behavior issues than for illnesses.  Puppies (and dogs) are expensive.  It can cost over $1,500 a year to care for a dog (vet check-ups, shots, spay/neuter, heartworm/flea tick preventatives, food, and other supplies).  Lastly, please consider your summer travel plans before applying for a puppy.  We do not adopt puppies more than 1-2 hours outside of the Washington DC area (we will adopt to Richmond and Baltimore).
