I am a USNMC rescue volunteer. Unfortuately, some neo's do not do very well being rehomed. Was she found in a shelter? That seems to be the biggest issue with most of the rescue neo's. When they get thrown into a shelter situation it really changes their personality. These are dogs that LIVE for their 'people.' Some will literally lie down and die.
Unfortunately, USNMC Rescue cannot under any circumstance, take a dog that has shown any aggression. The liability is too high. We don't deal with cockers!! These are dogs that can seriously injure, or kill a human. Just in sheer size and weight. Not to mention the determination.
My suggestion, and the suggestion of any of our volunteers would be what you are dreading. Let her go in your arms.
