Adoptable Dog of the Day: Carmella in Minnesota

Pin It

Meet Carmella, an adult Cocker Spaniel who is in the care of All Dog Rescue in Minneapolis, MN. Carmella was rescued from a puppy mill situation and arrived with several health problems. These have all been treated and she is now healthy and happy; in fact, the shelter says Carmella is the most “people-social” puppy mill dog they have ever seen.

She loves getting attention from her humans and is doing well with her house training. She does have one persistent reminder of her previous hard life: she has cataracts in one eye, so she is classified as a special needs dog. Her eye doesn’t require treatment at this time, but she will probably need to have surgery at some point.

Carmella is about 8 years old, spayed and up to date with her shots. This wonderful girl has done so well at overcoming her medical and social issues that she deserves to have a loving, forever home of her own. She will probably do best in a home without children and hopefully with another dog so she can continue developing her socialization skills.
