Hi Marcia!
I think you're wanting a nearly WHITE cocker, right?

As for the gorgeous conformation, there are a number of those around, but mostly not available...

Post is slightly vague, so if you could clarify.
Are you looking for
- a practically all white dog
- an extreme piebald and black parti (color only on the head and a patch near the rump/tail)
- a full coated/show line with excellent conformation extreme piebald and black parti

In cockers, a practically all white dog is likely to be a double merle. As merle means no pigment and pigment is needed for vision and hearing, such dogs are blind and deaf. There are two siblings on petfinder in King of Prussia, PA.

The other possibility for a practically white dog is a merle to extreme piebald mating. Again, the risk of vision/hearing issues without the pigment is high. Find these pups on places like facebook cocker puppy groups, or run a search for "merle cocker spaniel breeders" and see if any have an extreme piebald in their breeding program/photos of other litters with puppies matching the description, and then get on their wait list.

If you are looking for an extreme piebald and black parti, go to AKC's site, search for parti breeders near you, meet the breeders, and go on a wait list with your color preference.

If you are looking for a show line extreme piebald and black parti, go to infodog.com, search for shows near you, find a show with parti cockers, meet the breeders, tell them you want a pet with great movement, and go on a wait list with your color preference... and pray.

I will add that it's most likely that the other side of the dog in the photo is a half-mask and has splotches of black in larger quantity over the face and other ear, and a larger black spot near the rump.

I guess I am way ahead, I started praying the moment I saw the picture! Lol
I am not looking at a merle but Looking for a beautiful mostly white pet. Love all the white and the full coat. Of course, I know one side will never be the same as the other and that is ok. I have one kind of like that already, but he needs a little friend. Since it has been a while I posted pictures of my babies I will make a new post of them.
I do not show or breed just love beautiful cockers like that one. Wish I will be able to find one. I live in Utah and there are no shows over here, reason why I posted here and in a few other places hoping people will alert me to one. So, please let me know if you learn of one. Thanks.

There you go, Joe's helping out... you have a 4 day cluster show coming up in South Jordan and a 2 day show the weekend after in Logan. After the shows close, view the judging programs for each to see the entry counts of parti cockers.

Thank you! Not knowing much about or have ever been to a dog show I assumed it would not have cockers unless it was listed somewhere on the description of the show. Will go this time and check it out. Thanks again.

In today's world people have dropped their names from AKC which doesn't mean anything as a selling point. Your better breeders are found at ASC American Spaniel Club but that has lost lots of breeders not listing names or emails anymore.

You could have better luck in the Northwest. Don't know much about Colorado. Cockers are going through hard times today on the west coast as the economy is still in the pits.

Thanks Joe.
There will be a show here soon and I will go. Quite a few show breeders are trying to help me out but nothing showed up yet. I just want a pretty, quality pet and a little crazy friend for my Armani to run and play around. Hopefully I can find one soon that will be both. Thanks for your help.

I can tell you just about ten years ago there was your dog mostly white that you are looking for as we were ready to drive up to Portland Oregon, but one male buff came up in Lancaster Ca. which we were looking for. That's history now.

That is how it goes...... This time I am planning, really hard, to wait for her to show up. Crossing my fingers I will get lucky.
