McCloud [ADOPTED OCTOBER 19] is a 2 year old, neutered, buff/white male who came from an Illinois shelter. He was in deplorable condition and his entire body was covered with mats. He is an extremely high energy dog, but has a wonderful temperament and would probably do well with older children. However, his energy level might be too much for toddlers and younger kids. He wants to please and already knows how to fetch a ball. He is crate trained and is working on house training. He is a big Cocker and weighs around 35 pounds and has a low maintenance field coat. Please note, McCloud is not good with cats.

Update: McCloud is doing very well on his housebreaking and is learning to walk quietly on a leash. He is very willing and wants to please. He would be a great candidate for Fly Ball or Agility. Because of his energy level, a home with a fenced yard is recommended.
