Adoption saves lives

If you're interested in learning more about any of these dogs, or know that you are ready to adopt, please complete the Adoption Application. Be sure to indicate the name (or names) of the dog that is of interest. Puppies have special needs and will only be placed in a home where they can be monitored often (they should not be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time). Please consider your time and space limitations before applying to adopt a puppy. An adoption coordinator will get back to you within two to three days. Unless otherwise noted: all have been fully vetted and spayed/neutered; all have tested heart worm–negative; all are currently awaiting rescue in Alabama, Georgia, or Tennessee, and, upon adoption approval, FLD/Vermont Dog Rescue will transport them to Vermont. Additional information about bringing home a rescue can be found in our Guidelines for Adopters of Rescue Dogs.

8 yrs, female
Current on vaccinations, spayed
A little shy at first, then friendly and playful; good with adults
House trained; knows sit, down and paw

Because Holly is a slightly older lady and a purebred cocker spaniel at that, she has some minor medical needs. She has slightly dry eyes so one eye drop treatment daily is useful. Regular ear cleaning keeps her long, cocker ears healthy. She has sensitive skin and is somewhat reactive to chicken, so a high-quality dog food without chicken is recommended. A new non-steroid pill is given daily to keep her skin healthy.
