5 Year Old Female Cocker Spaniel
Bernadette (or Bernie to her friends!) is a 5 year old cocker spaniel. Bernie has led a sheltered life before coming to us and can be worried about new situations.
In her foster home she has been coming on in leaps and bounds and is now very nearly housetrained and learning about life in a home. Bernie is looking for a home with another dog as she loves their company and this gives her a lot of confidence. She can live with older children and may be able to live with cats. Bernie enjoys walks and being out and about, although she would prefer areas which aren't too busy. Although she hasn't learnt how to play with toys yet, she will do anything for a tasty treat! Bernie is ok to be left for short periods as long as she has another dog for company. She is also comfortable travelling in the car, as long as she has her friend with her!
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £200.
