Meet Chaplin, a 2 year old cocker spaniel mix. Chaplin has been at the Lubbock Animal Shelter since May 17th. He was picked up as a stray in a field in Lubbock County. He could very likely be a mix between a cocker spaniel and a welsh corgi.

Chaplin is a high energy dog who has lots of love to give his new owner. He was very obviously somebody's pet, because he is very well socialized. He knows how to sit, and can jump up into your arms. Once he calms down from the excitement of a new person, he knows other tricks as well. This little guy is full of energy and is extremely good natured. He seems to be friendly to other dogs and would probably do very well with children because of his upbeat and loving personality. He'll never get bored with you, and loves to play. He also seems intelligent and relatively easy to train.

Cocker Spaniels make gentle and sweet pets if raised correctly. Their cheerful attitude has made them a popular choice for families for decades. Cocker owners frequently describe their dog's personality as amusing and love them because of their playful antics.  They are also very trustworthy and good with children. They are devoted to their families and make themselves a part of everyday family life. They are relatively easy to train.

For an adoption fee of only $60, Chaplin can join your family.  The fee will include a microchip, shots, and a voucher for getting him neutered. If you paid for these things on your own, shots, neutering and microchipping can cost well over $250.

If you are interested in visiting or adopting Chaplin, contact Lubbock Animal Services at (806) 775-2057, visit their shelter at 401 North Ash Avenue in Lubbock, or send me an email at!
