April [ADOPTED AUGUST 5] is a 5-year-old female who came into rescue with Angel who reportedly was her sibling. Both dogs were surrendered by a person who was quite elderly. They were in a Central Illinois shelter that was running out of space. The dogs were quite matted and urine soaked. In the case of April it was impossible to save her coat. She is now a skin head. She will have a lot of coat when it grows back. She learned about a crate since coming into rescue and does appear to be housetrained. At first she was s a bit shy but seems now seems to be coming out of her shell and is a happy gal. She really does not like loud noises so she probably would do better in a quieter home. She is a bigger Cocker weighing about 30 pounds.

Update from April's foster home: April's foster parents are very taken with this sweet girl. She gets along so well with her foster siblings. She's shy around strangers and that can result with submissive wetting. Once given the opportunity to warm up to the stranger the wetting stops. April needs a little time and some help to build her confidence. An obedience class would be of great benefit for her and help her build that confidence. April loves her ball but hasn't quite figured out that if she'd bring it back, it would be thrown again for her. Her hair is coming back nicely and she is a gorgeous girl!!!
