If you're looking for a seriously cool dude, you've gotta meet Chester. Chester is a 5-6 year old Cocker Spaniel/Golden Retriever mix who is a sweet as they come. He made his way to the Cocker Inn by way of a local shelter and now he's looking for a forever home.

Nicklaus is a bouncy 4 year old boy who has become a real favorite at the Cocker Inn! This gorgeous boy was turned into a shelter because the owners were moving to a location where they couldn't take him with them. He has lived in a kennel much of his 4 years and has an abundant amount of energy to keep the kids entertained. He is totally house trained and knows basic obedience commands. We absolutely adore this sweet boy and we know he's gonna strike a chord with you too.
Zuzu is a smart ebony beauty who was found in the Bryan/College Station area about two years ago, blind and afraid. The CockerKids arranged for cataract surgery on one eye and after seeing flowers, birds and bugs, she finally knew that It's a Wonderful Life. Her new forever family renamed her Bella, and life was very, very good. Unfortunately, her family experienced some life changes and -- very sadly -- she had to move back to the Cocker Inn. Just like in the movie, Bella/Zuzu remains optimistic that her new forever family is right around the corner. She is most likely 6-8 years old now, has the softest, shiniest black coat imaginable, and would do well in a home where she could either be Alpha or an only dog, though she does get along with cats. Zuzu says that "every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings," and every time the door opens she looks to see if it's her new family.

This sweet boy may look like a lion but he is a purrrrrrfect little angel! Leo is a 5-7 year old Cocker/Shih Tzu mix. He has the face of a Shih Tzu with the height of a Cocker Spaniel. He came to us as a big shaggy mess and had to be completely shaved down because he was so matted. We can't wait for his coat to grow back because he is going to be absolutely gorgeous. According to his foster mom, he is totally house trained and uses the doggy door perfectly. He is also a bit shy so it takes a little while for him to warm up but once he does, he is a sweetheart.

At the shelter our volunteer watched the emaciated dog wobble toward her. Here was one a logical person would decline - advanced age, a probable orthopedic problem, and cataracts were all obvious health issues. But she just could not leave him behind. This was one that really needed us. Lewis had been left to fend for himself when his family abandoned him, locked in the house as they drove away for good. Who knows if he even had water?

Despite the hardships, Lewis is a friendly. loving dog. We suspect he had a back injury or vertebra problem leaving him somewhat unsteady on his feet but mobile. He has gained weight in his foster home but you can still see his hip bones. We would love to find an adopter for him but a Forever Foster home would be outstanding!

If you're looking for the best dog EVER, meet Ragsdale! This handsome boy is around 6 years old and is a true gentleman. He survived a very rugged past and was a diamond in the ruff when he crawled into the medical wing of the Cocker Inn. His ears were hurting because they were completely calcified from years of neglect and he was suffering with issues with both of his eyes. But through the CockerKids medical plan he's had ear ablation surgery on both ears. That means that the ear canals have been removed and he will never have another ear infection for the rest of this life! WooooHooooo! No more yucky ears for his family to have to clean or medicate....EVER! His eyes are much better too. They require a drop or two of inexpensive medication daily to maintain them and that's it. His hearing and vision may be limited but it doesn't stop this laid back and easy going boy from watching his foster mom get ready for work everyday And when she gets home, he is the first to hop in her lap. Ragsdale gets along great with everyone and is an all around great dog! A doggy door is a necessity for this perfectly house trained pup. He loves nyla bones and going for rides in the car.
Ruh roh Raggy..Rooby rooby roo here and I can barely see you. Ziokes, who turned out the lights?

Scooby Doo is a groovy 7 year old sable boy who was shivering in his boots when the green van drove off and left him at the local shelter. It's still a mystery as to why he ended up in a shelter but he was saved by the brave CSRET Cocker sniffing detectives who discovered that it was probably because he has cataracts. He appears to see shadows and functions great once he finds way around. Did someone say Scooby snack?

Come on over and check out this little holiday delight. Delilah is a 1 year old Docker. That's a Cocker/Dachsund mix and she's a real doll! She is a bit shy right now but we know she'll become the life of the party once she comes out of her shell. This little girl is fa la la la lovely!
Callie Jo is not our typical rescue. She checked in to the Cocker Inn® looking for a Kitty Club but took a really wrong turn. Callie Jo weighed in at 3 lbs and was estimated to be approximately 6 months old. She's been living among the CockerKids for way too long now, just waiting for someone to get her out of the doghouse. She has grown into a pretty calico girl that still acts like a kitten. She loves to dart around chasing anything that catches her eye. She is very social and never stops purring. She does tolerate some of the Cocker Inn residents, but is ready to check out. Who will let this Callie Jo entertain them? Send an email to cockerinfo@swbell.net or call the HotLine at 713-208-1314 to work out a change-of-address for this kitty among the cockers.
