Valentyna is a very pretty purebred sable Cocker Spaniel roughly 3 years old. Valentyna comes to us from Animal Care and Control of NYC, where she was turned in as a stray in emaciated condition. Either she was highly neglected by whoever last owned her or simply unable to fend for herself adequately once alone on the streets (the reality may be some combination of the two). Since coming into rescue, Valentyna has been responding well to love and care and steadily putting on some much needed weight. That said, whenever a dog has endured any period of starving, we do not recommend placement in a home with kids, as the animal's first instinct may always be to eat first and ask questions later. We are therefore seeking adult only placement for Valentyna in a secure and stable environment where she can continue to recover emotionally as well as physically. Valentyna is otherwise a healthy girl who has been spayed, microchipped, is current on all shots and has tested negative for heartworm. She will be professionally groomed before adoption and will go home with a new leash and collar.
