Look at the handsome Ernie! (DOB 1/24/2020). Ernie was surrendered to us when his owner got very ill and could no longer take care of him. His previous owners said that they believe he is a mix of Cocker Spaniel and Lahsa Apso. Ernie is a very quiet dog. He needs a home where he is the only dog as he is fearful of other dogs in his foster home. He ignores the cat. Ernie absolutely adores people. If there is a lap available, he will be laying on it. He loves to sleep in bed with his people. He is VERY affectionate and if you pet and cuddle him, he will be your best friend forever. Ernie likes long walks too. He may be short, but he is quick! More pictures of Ernie in comments. If you are interested in adopting Ernie, please fill out an application at https://www.floridacocker.org/adoptions. For more information, please call 813-245-1833. Potential adopters must have a verifiable veterinary history and should be willing to travel to the Tampa area for adoption if approved. Only approved applicants will be contacted. This post will be removed once Ernie is placed.
