Birdie [ADOPTED OCTOBER 6] came to us with the help of an animal control officer in a facility south of Chicago. He loves Cockers and watches out for any that end up in shelters in his area. Little Birdie's coat was so matted, he could not determine her sex. Unfortunately we were not able to save her coat, so she is now a bit of a skin head. She is 5-6 years old. Birdie is very sweet but she is quite timid in new situations. Birdie will not try to bite. She will just look at you with those soulful brown eyes as she tries to fade into the background. She is now in a foster home with a volunteer who is very skilled at working with this type of dog. Her foster mom reports that she is doing well and will be ready for placement soon.
