Oldies But Goodies Cocker Rescue


Baby | Female | Adopted

Puppy Alert!  Just in time for Christmas!

Welcome, baby Holly.  Holly was born on October 4, and is 9 weeks old!  She is white with light buff patches and has an undocked tail.  She is, of course, adorable and was one of 4 puppies that were rescued together.

Due to our experience with other puppies from this same situation over the past 2 years, Holly is looking for a single family home with a fully fenced-in yard (no e-fences).  While she is being well-socialized with young children now, we are looking for a home without kids under the age of 12y.  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 holiday 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).
