Dougal – A True Second Chance Dog

Dougal has had such a rollercoaster of a past, I can’t think of a dog more deserving of a second chance and an adoption ever after.

Dougal first came to Second Chance Cocker Rescue way back in 2014. At only 2 years old, Dougal was in really rough shape. The poor boy had a crushed front leg and internal bleeding. After a complex survey, a blood transfusion, and several weeks of healing, Dougal was back to his happy self and was ready to find a great home. Dougal was adopted and on his way to a wonderful rest of his life.

Fast forward to April 2019 and we got a call that Dougal was at the shelter. His microchip information had our number, and since no one was in able to get ahold of his owner, we came to Dougal’s rescue yet again! Dougal had changed so much in 5 years! He now weighed 44 pounds and hadn’t received vet care in a long time. We got him all checked out by our vet, put him on medication for his thyroid, and started to get him back to his old self.

Dougal is doing much better now and is ready for his final forever family. He’s getting back down to a normal cocker weight and is looking forward to a fresh start. We had to share his crazy story with the world and remind people of the importance of microchipping your pets. Dougal was lucky enough to be asked to join Larissa Wohl on Home and Family this week. You can watch for his segment at the top of the show on Monday, 7/8 at 10/9c on Hallmark Channel.

Dougal is available for adoption and would be thrilled if his SCCR friends would be kind enough to donate to his other cocker friends in need. Thank you so much!
