A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Hello, my name is Buster. I am a handsome jet black Cocker Spaniel just 9 years old. I have recently been surrendered to rescue due to a serious health crisis affecting my Dad, who is currently high on the list to receive a heart transplant. Although I will always hold a place in my Dad's heart, his immune system will be highly compromised following transplant surgery, with the result my... continued presence in the home could jeopardize his life. Sadly, Dad's heart has now been broken twice (first by heart disease and now by my departure). Although this transition is rather hard on me, I have promised Dad that I will be okay. After all, I am a sweet and gentle boy with an excellent disposition who will make an excellent family pet. I also get along well with other animals, so could easily join a multiple pet household. I am in very good health for a dog my age. I have been neutered, microchipped, am current on all shots and have tested negative for heartworm. I have also been treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming and will be sporting a new leash and collar at the time of going home. My only medical issues are canine "dry eye", which is easily treated with a daily inexpensive eye drop, and a grain allergy, which is common to the Cocker Spaniel breed (I will go home both with a supply of eye meds and also with a bag of my favorite grain-free dog food). If you would like to adopt or foster me while I await my forever family, please click here to submit an online application or email firstname.lastname@example.org
