Alex [ADOPTED APRIL 12] is a five year old, black male Cocker who is neutered, heartworm negative and current on his shots. He came to us from a private party who had planned to show him, but never did. He is being treated for an eye infection and takes meds for low thyroid function (which is very inexpensive). He has a wonderful temperament and we are evaluating him for housetraining trustworthiness but are expecting that he will need some training. He is great with other dogs and was good with a six year old granddaughter of one of the foster mom's. He enjoys stuffed toys and is a very pretty Cocker. He will need professional grooming every six to eight weeks.
