Spencer [ADOPTED DECEMBER 12] is an 8 month old, buff, male Cocker who is neutered, heartworm tested and up to date on his shots. He came to us from a shelter in the Chicago area. He is a thin puppy with a field coat. We are working at fattening him up a bit. He has a considerable underbite which means he was probably raised in a puppymill and sold for big bucks at a petstore. He is crate trained and doing well with housetraining, no accidents in the past couple of days. He gets along well with other dogs and is friendly with people but he is a VERY active puppy. He is a typical puppy who enjoys tearing up paper, playing with toys and chewing on raw hide or anything else that is interesting. Puppies take a lot of time and a lot of work. He seems to be of sound temperament and would do okay with older children. He may be too active for younger children who he could knock over while being playful. He does guard his special toys and treats. He is a sweet, but active puppy.
