angelHovan 121


Passed over teh Rainbow Bridge August 2015.

I adopted Hovan on June 2, 2012.  He was 10 years old at the time.  Elaine Baumann and I had many conversations deciding if he would work in well with my spoiled then 3 year old puppy Mill Cocker.  Elaine assured me with Hovans wonderful loving disposition they would do well.  She was 100 % correct. He was a perfect fit. Hovan knew how to work a crowd and my family, friends, and neighbors all loved him and will miss him so very much.  Hovan fought cancer for the last 6 months and yesterday August 1, 2015, we said good-bye to him.  My heart is broken ...until we meet again little man remember how much you are loved...
Thank you Shorewood Cocker Rescue

Hovan [Adopted 6/1/2012] is a wonderful 8 year old male who really owes his life to a Shorewood Volunteer.  He was at a shelter and considered unadoptable because he needed his teeth cleaned and had  the beginning of age related cataracts..  We should all see as well as he does.   Our volunteer spotted him on a visit to the shelter.  She pleaded his case and the rest is history. We understand that Hovan had a history of being picked up by Animal Control and his owners could no longer afford the reclaim fees.   Hovan will require a securely fenced yard or an owner who will walk him on a leash.  We learned that he does know how to open gates when  he was at the groomers.  He has not repeated the performance in his foster home.  He is house trained and crate trained and is really a near perfect dog.  His foster mom adores him.
