Meet "Eclair Au Chocolat" (fondly known as Chocolate), our rescue's resident Pastry Chef. Like most Cocker Spaniels, Chocolate is rather food obsessed, however he takes it up a notch (like any great chef, he is more like "food addicted"). Although he will hoover up almost anything delectable, Chocolate does best on a grain free diet (recommended for all Cocker Spaniels), which is great for ears and skin. Chocolate is a very special boy (very dear to us) who is looking for an experienced Cocker Spaniel home. He is extremely loving and affectionate and a real glutton for attention (especially belly rubs), which he will reciprocate in kind with lots of Cocker Kisses. However he is also quite a sensitive dog who requires a gentle touch (any form of rough housing will almost certainly scare him). Chocolate is a bit of an older boy now (his age is estimated to be around 8) and has been waiting for placement for a while ... although he is a beautiful dog (chocolate merles are rather rare), many adopters have sadly passed him by in favor of a "younger model." As a fairly laid back boy, Chocolate will make a wonderful dog for a single person who is looking for a companion or perhaps a couple of empty nesters who are looking for a new Chocolate baby to love and spoil. If you are a walker, then Chocolate is just the dog for you, as he adores his outings to the park and is great on the leash. Chocolate is a healthy dog who has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all shots and has tested negative for heartworm. He will be treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming before going home, so will be starting out his new life fully loaded and on the right foot. If you would like to adopt or foster our little Eclair Au Chocolat, please email or click here to complete and return an application on-line. With a daily dose of Chocolate in your life, things are sure to be a whole lot sweeter.
