Update as of March 31, 2008 (evening) from a volunteer in Texas: We have 17 dogs to safety. Of these dogs 8 are known to be heartworm NEGATIVE.only 2 are positive so far and 7 dogs have yet to be tested. This ratio of heartworm negative dogs in itself is a minor miracle. The estimated age range right now is 1 to 5 with most around 3 or so. We will be pulling more Tuesday as our resources allow, but are working VERY VERY hard at getting other groups, even out of state, to try and pull some of these dogs.

Make no mistake here, we fully realize that DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue can in no way rescue all 80 of these dogs alone. Not only do we not have the personnel & foster space we do not have the financial resources to vet them. With that said we will rescue as many as humanly possible and assist other groups with transportation so that even more can get to safety! If you have out of state relatives that can check with rescue groups in their area tell them about these dogs. We can arrange 'transport trains'!! I myself was part of one just last week for three dogs that came all the way from Ohio to another group in Texas!!! Right now the dogs that we have safe are in boarding waiting to be vetted or at vets being vetted. Once they are vetted Pam McKelroy will be working triple time to get these dogs into foster homes. We have had so many wonderful folks step up to help with this situation. more are needed, but we are well on the way to having places for these beautiful dogs. As to the personalities/ behaviors of the dogs so far. They are all very timid of humans, but not aggressive at all. They allowed Capstar tablets to be shoved down their throats (an extremely fast acting flea-ridding treatment) without problems. They do not know how to be on a leash, they are frightened of all the things happening to them and they are not house-broken. PLEASE understand that these things are usually very quickly learned with patience and consistence and don't let it scare you off from helping these furkids. These dogs, when around gentle, loving, consistent human treatment will no doubt warm up quickly. They appear intelligent and clear eyed. We hope that this answers some of the many questions being asked by you all. Your support, both with time, roofs over head and financially are making this possible. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!
