We are so blessed to have found wonderful families to adopt our puppies that we wanted to share some of their stories as well as any pictures or videos we have received from them.
We adopted our Lady Abigail September 2020 and Holly Joy from Mary’s Cocker Haven on January 2021. Throughout the entire adoption process, we had complete confidence in Mary’s professionalism as a breeder. Because she ensures the puppies are socialized with her family prior to adoption, both of our puppies have happy, merry, confident dispositions with people and dogs. While we waited to adopt each puppy, she kindly sent us updated photos and videos as they grew. She even allowed us to see our puppies through FaceTime. We also appreciate the adoption gift bags and notebooks she provided on each adoption day. Abigail and Holly are playful, bright and healthy. What a delight her puppies have been to our family! Both Rock and I highly recommend Mary’s Cocker Haven as a reputable, professional breeder of cocker spaniels. Thank you for blessing us with these two precious female American Cocker Spaniels.

Mary we love you!
We can’t say enough good things about you. Blue, our five year old dapple has been the best thing in our lives. He’s handsome, healthy, smart and amazing in every way. He’s so unique that people actually stop us on the street to ask about him and take pictures. During the COVID pandemic we decided we wanted another addition to our pack. Once again you came through and found us the perfect addition to our family. Shelby is beautiful, intelligent, affectionate and sweet as can be! Thank you so much for the unconditional love and happiness that you helped bring into our lives! We will forever be grateful to you!
I am just wanting to share a few photos of our little guy “JORDAN”. We just celebrated his 1st birthday on March 2nd 2021, when we got him from you back on May 4th 2020, he was such a tiny little boy but has grown into a very handsome toddler, I’ll use your description…”He’s exquisite and one of a kind”! He is super affectionate, very smart and truly a great addition to our lives. He is the second cocker spaniel we have purchased from you over the years and I would definitely reach out to you in the future to keep our family cocker spaniel strong. We truly want to thank you for bringing adorable cocker spaniels into this world and making our life and others lives so enjoyable with this special breed !
Sincerely, Rochelle, Rick & Jordan
Bella is the most delightful pet I could have hoped for – She is healthy, sweet, affectionate, and intelligent. She loves to eat her food in bed and play with our German shepherd, Rocco. She takes naps with me and makes the cutest grunts when you move! We have taken her everywhere with us and she loves to go on our camping trips. She defiantly fits in with our family great! Our family is extremely fortunate to have found Mary at Mary’s Cocker Haven, and gladly refer her to anyone looking for a puppy raised in a truly loving, and caring environment. Thank you!
On September 11, 2018 I adopted my first Cocker Spaniel from Mary Dugan at Mary’s Cocker Haven. From flying to Colorado, meeting Mary in person to traveling on a plane home to Wisconsin, my little Coco Chanel has been absolutely perfect in every way an amazing dog should be.
Coco has adapted extremely well and has an amazing disposition and a glorious independence that is truly important for a healthy and happy dog. From day one she has not developed any anxious tendencies and puts herself to bed every night. She is happy, well rounded and loves to be around everyone. Always full of life, she glides around the room being the show stopper and gathers many crowds where ever she goes.
If you want a healthy Cocker Spaniel with a very confident disposition and easily trainable look no further than Mary Dugan at Mary’s Cocker Haven. Mary takes the time to help you with the transition from adoptee to becoming a member of the forever family.
Thank you, Mary for allowing us to be a part of your Cocker family and letting us adopt the most amazing chocolate with big brown eyes with endless lashes.
Hugs to you
Lani , owner of Ms. Coco Chanel
Mary, I just wanted to say my dad and mom insisted I watch the video on YouTube!!!
I thought our breeders were great, but you exceeded any expectations by making sure that my parent’s were updated with Cinnamon’s pictures every week.
I have enjoyed watching Cinnamon get bigger and bigger, my mom Linda and dad David are the ones that adopted her. I spoke to you briefly on the phone when you were checking my parents out for adoption.
They are so anxious to get her, my mom is already puppy proofing the house! lol. Its really nice to find a breeder that is this close to the puppies. If we choose cockers I would definitely use you guys.
We have two boston terriers that will get to meet little cinnamon in July we just cant wait. I just wanted to give credit wheres credit due and you all definitely need it, you are doing an outstanding job. And definitely no need to worry about where she is going she will be just as spoiled if not MORE as with your family. Thanks
To see the video go to YouTube!
Thank you for trusting us with Casey and giving him such a great beginning. We will definitely keep in contact and I can certainly bring him for visits (or you can visit him) if you would like. I will send you many pictures. He won’t be far away. It is so reassuring to know that Casey has great parents (both human and canine) that have been taking care of him. I didn’t have that info with Colby and his start in life was not nearly as wonderful as Casey’s has been. I am glad I found you.

I’m so sorry I haven’t been in touch. Its just been so busy with Bailey and moving and whatnot. She’s doing wonderfully! I absolutely can’t get enough of her! She doing really well with potty training and has learned some simple commands. Its been such a blessing to have her in my life. Ill attach some pictures!
My Angel (Black Cocker Spaniel) died on the Friday, April 16, 2011 she was 12 1/2 years old.
When we came to your house and I saw Anastasia she really brighten up my day. I just wanted to thank you for holding her until I came up with the money to adopt her.
She hasn’t replace my Angel, but she really saved my life as I was so depressed and I thought I wouldn’t be able to love another dog until she came into my life….

Around June 1, 2011, I had to have Miss Honey (Buff) put down as she had cancer.
She was 13 1/2 years old and I loved her so dearly.
I wanted to thank you for brightening up my days again. Since I have adopted Tara my life is full of joy.
Tara is the darling of the small dog park – gets lots of attention, as does Teddy. They are really getting along well and had a hoot this morning as they were playing tug of war and running and chasing each other. Think she is what Teddy and I needed. It was hard for Teddy as he lost his best friend. He didn’t eat and he had trouple sleeping until Tara came into our lives.
Thank you so much for giving us a gift!!!

We are in love with our new puppy, Maggie Mae! She has been terrific. Everything you said about her is true – she is smart, self-assured, loving (she loves to kiss and be kissed), and she is almost entirely potty trained (at 12 weeks old), amazing! I take her to work with me every day and she is very social. She’s our answer to the new “shredder”. She grabs the loose papers and has fun showing off her stuff in the middle of the office. When she wears down, she loves to snuggle on my lap and sleep. The customers and the employees love it when she pops her head up over my desk to say “Hello”. She has been a great stress relief – for sure.
Needless to say, after losing our 13 year companion, Daisy Mae, in September, 2011, I couldn’t imagine any other dog. Maggie Mae, however, has helped us heal. She is wonderful.
Mary, I don’t want to go without saying how much I appreciate you. You helped us prepare for Maggie. I not only gained a new member to our family, but I have gained a terrific friend-You! I love our phone chats, and you really helped me during my sadness after losing Daisy.
Thank you for being a terrific Cocker Spaniel breeder. I will always highly recommend you and I look forward to getting another Cocker from you someday!
Let’s talk soon-I miss ya!
Kathryn Brundle, Michigan (Maggie Mae)
