Please contact RMCR (Inquiries@RockyMountainCockerRescue.org) for more information about this pet.
All our rescues are temporarily housed in pre-screened, loving foster homes while they wait for their new forever home. All dogs will be spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots, groomed (if needed), and given an overall veterinary exam to identify any health issues or potential issues.
Spayed female Cocker Spaniel
Mopsie is a very high energy three to four year old female wiggle butt. She is a people lover that is full of licks and unconditional affection. She loves people and has done very well with her foster’s eight and nine year old daughters. There are no concerns regarding her demeanor around children that are mature enough to not abuse or tease her; she loves her fosters daughters and has been very receptive towards them both. She is a dominant female that would do best in a home environment where she is the center of attention. She wants to be a lap dog and would love to be on the couch with you. She is not allowed on the furniture in her foster home and they are training her to stay off the couch. She is responding well with an occasional firm reminder needed. Exposure to cats is unknown at this time but we suspect that her dominance would not make her a good companion to a cat in the house. Perhaps in time they would become friends, but that would require some close supervision until she accepts the cat. She wanted nothing to do with the foster’s male Cocker Spaniel who is quite a submissive male. After a brief and guarded introduction of 30 minutes, she accepted him and they quickly reached amicable terms once all the sniffing had been completed. She could do well with other dogs if the time is taken to properly introduce them and correct aggressive behavior. Her ideal home-setting would be as a single pet that gets lots of attention as she gives it just a freely. She is not a fence jumper, has not chewed anything inappropriate, and was quickly potty trained by my dog. Not a single incident after the first night which was territorial marking only.
