Emma, an American Cocker Spaniel in need of a new home.

If you’re at all familiar with New Mexico’s cultural heritage, you’ll probably know that Cocker Spaniels are not the first choice of pet breeds in this region. As a matter of fact, the rescue shelters, humane societies, and especially the Albuquerque animal welfare department and the surrounding county animal departments are shown overly filled with dogs of Pit Bull, Chihuahua, and interestingly enough, of Australian Shepard origins. Rarely do cocker spaniels and particularly a purebred one show up in Internet searches for rescue dogs in the southwest region.

You may also remember my early blog story on Ruby, our attempt at adapting a young Cocker Spaniel before Chloe. Ruby was in fact saved through a local animal rescue organization from a high-kill facility after being abandoned by her owners as they exited the city.  It’s no wonder that I have a soft spot for such situations. 

Well, yesterday I came across Emma, who appears from her picture to be a very young female, probably a purebred American Cocker Spaniel that arrived recently at the animal shelter in Aztec, New Mexico. The shelter’s website provides only a brief description with her picture that you see posted. If you’re interested in sharing your home, your heart, and your life with a beautiful blonde colored Cocker Spaniel here is an opportunity.
