Shadow [ADOPTED NOVEMBER 15] is a wonderful 5 year old black male who came to us from a Chicago Shelter with a high kill rate. He came in as a stray. He was totally matted and there was no chance that his coat could be saved. The poor guy actually had burrs embedded in his skin. He is a dog who has tons of love to give! He gets along well with other dogs and cats and was excellent for his grooming which must have been a painful experience for him. He is totally housetrained. Shadow can be crated but will complain a bit for the first few minutes. He will chew on things so he must be supplied with appropriate toys to keep him busy.
Shadow has turned out to be quite the character. He's a happy boy who loves to give kisses. He even loves children and always wants to go next door to play with the little girls. They wanted to take him to school for "pet day" but we decided that 25 6 year olds might be too much for Shadow. He's a great little snuggler who likes his belly rubbed. Like most Cockers his favorite time of day is meal time. He will tell you that we've starved him but it isn't true. Shadow is looking for his forever home with someone he can give kisses to for the rest of time. He needs a few manners but he is a quick learner and eager to please. (especially if there is a treat involved)
