Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 (Corona) virus, in-person home visits are not possible at this time. Since this is a very important part of finding the best home for our dogs, we are not accepting any applications from first-time pet owners, applicants who have not had a pet in the past 3 years, or applicants who cannot furnish vet records. We hope you understand and that you will consider applying to adopt once the shelter-in-place restrictions have been lifted.
Bobo is about 1 year old and still in his full puppy stage. He is curious, active and as expected, has a penchant for looking for what kind of trouble he can get into. He is 99% loving and 1% spoiled brat. He is rather demanding on his need for affection, follows us from room to room, walks across the tables, loves to eat paper, he does not eat dog poop (yay!), but loves rabbit poopy. Leaves toys and remnants all over the house and still demands to give you kisses and requires belly rubs.
He is extremely fond of stuffed toys and his new home will have to have a ready supply of toys for him. He enjoys playing with his toys and often will entice you to play with him (he loves to be chased), however he can get into his moods where he does not want to share his toys and will become possessive or he does not want to get off the couch or bed (use a leash to make him come down). He is generally not food aggressive (able to give treats, feed with other dogs in same room, however if you give him a BONE be prepared to just let him finish it. For this reason, he needs a home with no small children (minimum age 15 years).
Bobo is housetrained, crate trained and can use a dog door. He can sit, but needs basic obedience, leash walking, boundaries, ‘leave it’, ‘drop’ and recall training. He does well with most dogs, but would do better in a home without older/feeble/blind dogs. Because he is still a puppy and needs discipline, he will need to go to a home willing to make a training commitment. DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue will provide up to four in-home dog behavior training sessions.
He does bark when he sees or hears outside activity, so a single home with good fencing is preferred. He is thin enough that he can squeeze through wrought iron fencing, so chain-link or wood fencing is recommended.
