Wherefore art thou home-e-o???

In this modern day love story, Romeo,a 3-4 year old lover boy, with along fluffy tail, is looking for a forever home. In Act I, he was tragically abandoned by his family. Act II found Romeo on the doorsteps of the Cocker Inn. In Act III, he was told that there weren't enough foster beds in the castle for the homeless lad so he would have to bunk at a pet lodge. In Act IV, weeks had gone by and he was still camped out at the pet lodge with no one to love. Act V remains incomplete since the story about Romeo's forever home has yet to be told. You can rewrite this play so it doesn't become a tragedy. Don't let the curtain go down on this love story without casting yourself in a leading role.

Helen is a eight year old black beauty who lost her way and was found wandering near a busy intersection. After no one claimed her, she made her way to the Cocker Inn®. People seem to be put off by her blindness but she handles it with remarkable aplomb. Although she takes exception to other dogs bumping into her she manages some remarkable feats such as jumping into a chair. Helen has adapted so well to her blindness that you may forget she can't see.

H.W.Byles said, "Cheerfulness is what greases the axles of the world". If that is so, this happy guy will never go through life creaking. Jake is a tail wagging 3 year old black and white male who loves life and everything about it. As with many Cocker Spaniels, he has occasional seizures but not enough to require medication. He is visually impaired because of cataracts but you would never know it because he can see around them. He is not a candidate for cataract surgery because his angles are too narrow so he may lose his vision as he ages. You can't help but smile just being around this happy little guy. When he wags his long fluffy tail, his whole back end wiggles. He is truly a sweetheart who loves unconditionally and is looking for someone who will love him unconditionally as well. Xuxa, pronounced "Shoo Sha" means Lily, and like all lilies she needs time to blossom. With the proper care and attention you will have one of the most beautiful flowers you can imagine. Xuxa did not have the best start in life, the family she trusted mistreated her, leaving her nervous and insecure with people she doesn't know. However, if given a day to get to know you, she will give you her devotion for the rest of her life. Because of previous abuse, Xuxa does not like strangers touching her. She whines, cries and then growls. Xuxa would do best with a family that has experience with timid dogs won't be around small children. She needs time to warm up. After that she is an awesome housetrained snuggle bug and all you need to do to make her happy is love her and let her be with you.

Happiness is like a butterfly, which when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, it you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

Like a butterfly, Missy remained beyond our grasp and it was only when our volunteer sat down and quietly waited ,that this little angel alighted upon her. We had reports that a pitiful Cocker Spaniel had been seen hanging around a local night club looking for food. One of our volunteers began going to that location each night to look for her and sat quietly and waited until Missy finally came to her. She didn't have hair to keep her warm because it had all fallen out as a result of Sarcoptic Mange. Lack of food had resulted in emaciation and we later learned that her limp was caused from a torn ACL. To make matters worse, she had heartworms. Fast forward two months.... she is recovering nicely and her tan and white hair is growing back silky and soft. Her ACL has been repaired and she is currently undergoing treatment for heartworms. She has gone through a complete metamorphosis and has become an absolute doll. She adores any toy you give her and appreciates all the love she can get. She will finish with her heartworm treatment in late March, and will then be ready for her forever home.

Missy after ACL repair

Hello! My name is Griffin. I'm such a happy boy; in fact I'm always so happy that I can't stop myself from constantly wagging my tail. I'm about 9 years old and I absolutely love people. Young people, mature people and even other dogs! Everyone who meets me loves me. I have lost my vision due to glaucoma, but I can navigate perfectly well. I can even use the doggy door at my foster home! I learned it in one day. I've never had an "accident" in the house. If I don't have a doggy door, I will go to the door and whine to go out. I'm a very quiet guy - you'll NEVER hear me bark. I'd love to live in a forever home where I can get lots of attention, climb onto laps and cuddle for hours at a time. My other favorite activities are going bye-bye and playing with toys. My long term care will require eye drops 3 times a day, but again, I'm such an angel, when I'm called, I will walk over and hold my head up for the drops. I don't like to brag, but I'm an awesome, loving boy. Please let me live with you!
Looking to get into better shape? Nick is a young, 1-2 year old who is looking for a jogging or walking partner to train with. He will keep you on your pace and go the extra mile. He loves life, enjoys running and never misses an opportunity to chase squirrels or birds. Nick's deep red coat is stunning. You will turn heads on the trail. Nick wants you to get off that couch and join his exercise program!

Cullen is a pretty 2-3 year sable boy found running in a local park. He came to the Cocker Inn with huge mats knotted right down to his skin. After several hours on the grooming table, all that was left was this skinny little boy. Cullen is very sweet and looking for that special home where he never has to worry about his next meal.
