Merlin (American Cocker Spaniel)

Your Pet's Age
5 months


Your Pet's Breed
American Cocker Spaniel

How and when did you get your pet?
I received him from a breeder in August. My previous Cocker had passed away a few weeks prior after battling lung cancer, and Merlin was having difficulty finding a home due to a congenital defect. No one seemed to want this adorable little puppy who would need surgery. Well, they missed out. He had his surgery last week and is doing fabulous!

What does your pet like to do for fun?
Playing with the cat, playing with me, chewing on raw carrots, and going for long walks.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
He's super smart, he knows basic commands in both English and Korean. He's figured out how to escape the baby gates meant to keep him corralled.

He's such a loving and friendly soul, we've decided to train together to become a pet therapy team in our community. They recently built a children's hospital here, with a dedicated children's cancer treatment wing and program. I think Merlin would be fantastic as a therapy dog visiting those kids.

Ahhh, my heart has softened reading your story. Your adorable pup looks a lot like our male cocker spaniel who passed away this year. What a wonderful idea to bestow upon a child who receives visits in a hospital from a furry friend. Your generosity is very heartfelt.

How wonderful that you adopted this sweet little soul and got him the surgery he needed! Best wishes to both of you as he heals, and for future success with him as a therapy dog! Your kindness is already being rewarded!
