Alexandria Cocker Spaniel ‘Solo’ is Ready to Pair Up

An elderly, golden-haired cocker spaniel named Solo is, ironically, looking for some companionship.

The 10-year old spaniel at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (4101 Eisenhower Avenue) has a number of tricks he’s been showing off in foster care — like sit, stay, down and come — but also has a more specialized ability to find treats hidden around a room on command.

“With his golden, flowing locks and award-winning smile, you might think Solo was an international dog model, but in fact, he’s just a sweet senior spaniel looking for a home,” said Gina Hardter, spokeswoman for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Solo has a liver condition, but it’s well managed with medication, Hardter said.

“He plays like a puppy, but he’s a perfect gentleman on a walk,” Hardter said. “Despite his puppy-like demeanor, he’s looking for a home in the company of like-minded adults (or older children) where he can snuggle, play and enjoy the occasional well-deserved nap in the sun.”
