Houston dog adoption corner: Meet Mattie the cocker spaniel


Mattie was a heavily matted and neglected dog when she was taken to BARC (the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care), but today (thanks to Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue), she is a beautiful three year-old American cocker spaniel looking for a forever home.

Mattie is very sweet and loves people. She is learning manners and gaining confidence daily, but right now she is a little nervous around new people and situations.

Mattie gets along with her foster cocker spaniel siblings but would do best in a home without large dogs. She craves human attention and would do great with a family who can provide Mattie with lots of love, structure, and a routine.

If you would like to meet Mattie or learn more about her, please contact Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue (GCCSR) by sending them an e-mail here.  To view more photos of Mattie (including her before photo), click here.
