Holly is estimated to be a year to a year and a half old. A buff and white with a natural tail, she is friendly and affectionate but quite active. She is learning how to walk on a leash and behave in the house. Because she was rescued from a hording situation, living outside as part of a large pack of dogs, she will need a patient home that is willing to work with her.

Little blue eyed lady, how come you're all alone?
I've been asking, no-one seems to know
To whom do you belong little blue eyed lady?

-Rick Parfitt/Alan Lancaster

Look at those beautiful blue eyes! Maggie Sue is around 7-8 years young. She joined us a little while back from a local shelter and has obviously had a hard life before joining the CockerKids. Maggie Sue is slowly coming out of her shell. She only recently started hanging out with her foster family verses cowering in the corners of the house. She is still very skittish and will only walk around the house if the humans are sitting down. We have yet to hear her bark, but boy can she snore! She really needs a forever home that will be patient and understanding of her past. She may do really well in a home with other pups.

If there were a "Hard Knocks" award, Sammi Sue would win, hands down. She was dumped at a shelter because " she escapes and she is blind in one eye. Afraid she is going to get hit by a car." Mmmmm, in her foster home she has never escaped because she is an inside dog. She loves going outside and is always the last to come in because there is so much to explore. Indeed she is blind in one eye. Our ophthalmologist theorized her left eye had been injured a while back that was not treated. She has a cataract in the other eye which is dissolving. She has light perception in that eye which makes her very adept at avoiding furniture, walls and other large objects. Her foster mom is not sure Sammi Sue knows she is vision impaired because she tears around the house and yard. On intake, Sammi was also underweight, her coat was dry indicating she had poor nutrition and she was heavy heartworm positive. Sammi Sue has a darling personality, loves attention, is housebroken and crate trained. She is around four years old and is a black and tan cockapoo. If you are looking for a devoted companion, Sammi Sue is the dog for you.

Ray Charles.....Stevie Wonder....Andrea Bocelli...and Louie! Do you know what they all have in common? They are all blind and but make sweet music with their hearts. When Louie moved from a nearby shelter to the Cocker Inn, he was in very poor shape. He was matted from head to toe and his eyes were a mess. But once he cleaned up and the eye infection cleared, we discovered a totally awesome little guy! Apparently blind since birth, he has never had vision so he learned to uses his other senses and he functions just like any others. He is totally house trained and uses a doggy door just like the rest of his foster brothers and sisters . Once he acclimates to his environment, you would never know that he is blind. He loves a good romp in the yard as well as well as yummy chew on his dog bones. This sweet boy gets along with absolutely everyone! You know what would make him a perfect family dog? He can't see to chase a family cat so we could safely say that he is cat friendly.

Trixie is out of the Cocker Inn's medical wing, and ready to move to a forever home. She made a six hour trek from northwest Louisiana to join the CockerKids. In addition to being heartworm positive and skinny as a rail, she had an upper respiratory infection and sarcoptic mange. Her respiratory infection is gone and the mange has cleared up. She is three years old, crate trained and sweet as sugar.

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.

The following CockerKids® have found their way into our foster home network, and are looking for their forever home. As we get more information on them it will be posted on this site.
