“We bought a cocker spaniel from Little Rascals in 2008. I emailed them when he was nine months old to express my concern regarding his papers etc. They responded with ‘if you are not happy bring him back”. I obviously did not do this as he was a much loved pet and, at the time, was happy and healthy.

Sadly he died suddenly at age five from possibly an immune system disorder. After reading things on various forums you start to wonder if irresponsible breeding practices are to blame. It would be interesting to know the fate of the rest of his litter but that is not going to make us feel any better. It does make you wonder how many of these puppies reach maturity.”
