Remy was a huge hit at the vet! The vet tech and Remy were like magnets to each other. It was adorable. Bad news is he needs to have his funky broken leg amputated. Dr Card said it was an old injury that was never treated. It matched the pellets left in his body where someone used him for target practice. Dr Card said there was no fixing the leg and we can’t leave it as it is so we have him scheduled for a neuter and amputation in May……we will be leaving the pellets in unless some are close to the amputation site. His rear right leg is also messed up, but he gets around find so we are just leaving it alone! If you can donate towards his surgery he would be so grateful.

Remy is a odd but endearing spaniel mix and not very old. He won’t be ready for adoption until he has healed from his surgery.

Spring Showers Bring more Cockers!!

Yep it is raining Cockers here at Second Chance. Now is your chance to foster, adopt or donate towards many fabulous Cockers.

Minka is the 8 year old buff and white girl, far left, super sweet and a bit of a couch potato.

Khalese and Tobias are 3-4 years old and a bonded pair. Super sweet and and great with other dogs.

Lucky is 3-4 years old and a happy go lucky kind of guy.

Max, all black and far right, is a senior boy and a love muffin. His eyes were removed so he is blind but gets round like a champ.

Waiting for a picture is Prince, a SABLE boy…oh, yeaah we said sable…wait until you see him. He is 6 years old and what a doll. For some reason he has no teeth and his tongue is a hang’n out making him look like he is smiling all the time.

All these cockers just came in and are in need of a foster/adoption home ASAP. Can you help?

Reese, so Sweet!

We pulled Reeses this week and she is so adorable! She is a tiny little thing that makes you want to scoop her up and cuddle her. We gave her a warm bath and she felt like a new girl. Reese is about 8 years old. She is a Cocker mix. She has severe muscle atrophy. It could be from lack of activity. She’s on the thin side so we’re giving her a mixture of adult and puppy food.She is being transported to California where she will need medical attention and a foster home. Any help is so appreciated!!

Curly Girl Pupdate

Sleepy Curly

Curly is an unique character. This little girl is just so super sweet and cuddly. She hates to have you out of sight and needs tons of attention. Curly is ready for her furever family!

Curly is an adorable and sweet little girl who we think is a cavalier/cocker mix. She is only about 18 pounds and approximately 8 years old.

Curly came to us from the Las Vegas shelter with several issues. First, she was not spayed and had 4 mammary tumors that needed to be removed. She also has a significant heart murmur (4-5/6) so we did an x-ray to see size of her heart and it is enlarged. She also had a cough which we knew was not kennel cough. Unfortunately, this means she will eventually go into congestive heart failure. That is not saying that she will drop dead in the near future. She probably has several good years ahead of her. The good news is that we started her on heart medications (2 different ones) and her cough is already 100% better, barely even coughing at all.

She also had a mass removed from her the top of her head and had a dental. This girl got the works! No extractions and still waiting for the results of the biopsy of the mammary tumors. We ran bloodwork and urinalysis on her and both were perfect. She has typical cocker ears that need to be cleaned on a regular basis (came with ear infection). Eyes are a little cloudy, but she gets around great and appears to see just fine.

She does great with other dogs…..does not want to play with them, but happily and easily cohabitates with them. She has anxiety issues, including separation anxiety. She must be with someone at every moment and craves human attention above all else.

She is very cuddly and loves to snuggle on the couch. She snores like a bear. She has mastered doggie door too!

The perfect home for curly would be a house with a stay at home family. Her family also needs to be prepared for a lifetime of heart meds. We know that Curly will be a treasure for any family.

Curly is currently in Romoland and is looking for a home where someone is around a lot.

Meet our newest senior sweetheart, Curly!!


Curly is coming to us from the Las Vegas shelter. This poor old girl is in need of some pretty extensive medical treatment!

Curly is a geriatric, intact female, with a mass on top of head, heavy dental tartar, cloudy eyes, and a grade IV heart murmur. She is going straight to our awesome vet so we can get her started on the right treatment plan and begin addressing her multiple medical conditions.

Mr. Marty needs your help!


Marty is a little red cocker mix who probably also has some doxi in him as he is long and a bit low, but very cute. We recently got him from the OC shelter and he had his initial exam today.

His health isn’t too bad for a 10 year old. He is not neutered and has significantly bad breath, so a dental and neuter are scheduled for next week. He also barely eats and is bone thin, so he is getting spoiled with his very own chicken dinner.

Marty is completely 100% blind and somewhat disoriented. He is anxious right now, but it’s hard for blind dogs to acclimate sometimes. Right now he is pacing and going in circles. We are working with him to help him feel comfortable and more confident. Right now it seems that being in smaller spaces and having someone near him helps. He is a very nice little boy who just needs a little extra TLC.

If you can find it in your heart to donate to his care, here’s how you can help:

Good news for elsie

Dr. Card called with an update on Elsie…she removed the big tumor from her wrist, 3 mammary tumors and the growth on her who-who, and spayed her.  Big day for Elsie.  Teeth are not bad, but ears are a bad.  Polyps, polyps, polyps……never going to be good.  She had ear meds, two weeks ago and so far not re-infected. We will have to keep an eye on them. They are so closed with scar tissue they can’t heal properly.   All the tumors were removed and recommended for biopsy, The wrist one was particularly concerning since it was attached to a blood vessel, but Dr Card got it off and managed to close the site. But the biopsy did come back malignant. However, we got good margin and don’t expect to impact her again at her age. Elsie is such a sweet girl. She will be ready to go home very  soon. We thank you for your generous donations towards her medial bills
