Pregnant and homeless, Cookie checked into the Cocker Inn on on Tuesday January 14. On Saturday, January 18 she gave birth to six puppies. Of those six puppies, Waffle is still looking for a home. We know there are some spaniel genes somewhere in Waffle, but even though she may not look like a cocker, she's still a cutie. Because she still needs to be spayed and she needs another round of puppy shots, please be sure to review our Puppy Policy, then submit an application. 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.

Clifford, our Little Red Dog, has had a rough time. He's been hospitalized at two different vet clinics. He's lost weight and battled a raging infection. He was eventually diagnosed with a strangulated hernia and had to undergo emergency surgery. He's been released from the hospital, and he's moved out of the Cocker Inn's medical wing. He's put on weight, he's lookin' good and he's ready to go to a forever home.

Clifford's story is a long one, and you can read it by clicking this link. Click your browser's back button to return to this page.

Mommy O, Daddy O
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.
