DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue often rescues senior Cockers (ages 8 and up).
Some of these dogs may be diagnosed with medical or behavioral conditions that will require special care for the remainder of their lives. They are placed in foster homes with someone who will administer care, treatment and medication while the dogs enjoys life in a loving home environment. DFWCSR covers the cost of veterinary care, surgeries, treatment and medications for as long as the dog is in foster care.
If you would like to help by sponsoring one of these Super Seniors, DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue and our foster families would be very grateful. Our ability to continue rescuing senior Cockers depends on your financial support.
We believe every dog in need deserves a chance, even if they are a little frosty around the muzzle.

March of 2019 saw Foxy Roxy facing euthanasia or rescue – and that’s where DFWCSR stepped up. She is still receiving medical treatment as her myriad of health issues had to be addressed and healed one at a time. She is now down to a healthy 24 lbs, has had cataract surgery with lens replacement and glaucoma treatment, and her yeasty skin infections are all gone. Her ears and allergies can be better addressed now that she’s not fighting so many battles. She can never eat commercial dog foods due to her allergies, and will always need medications and special baths. DFWCSR and her wonderful forever foster have given her a life back!
