We are delighted to welcome Sgt. Oliver to our list of available CockerKids! For such a long time, he has been confined to the Cocker Inn's medical wing with a spinal injury. After several trips to doctors, therapy sessions and plenty of recovery time Sgt. Oliver is finally ready to join the civilian world. This is one tough soldier, and he's anxious to be part of your outfit.

"A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside".
-Winnie the Pooh

Honey is a 6 year old red boy who recently found himself in a shelter without a single friend. He despises being locked up and was ready to be free again. Now in a foster home, this 30 pound boy loves to hunt and sleeps with one eye open so he doesn't miss anything. He loves to track squirrels, birds and bugs that enter his yard. Honey still doesn't like being in a kennel and prefers being close to his human. He bonds quickly and would be happiest in a home as the only dog.

"Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend
And if you do, well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no,"

-George Strait

It's rodeo time in Houston and Alfie Blue has put on his Stetson hat and is ready mosey on down to the ole corral. Like George Strait, Alfie has aged well and has become quite a legend. At 6-8 years old, this 'ol boy has sown his wild oats and is ready for retirement. He is a loving little guy who gets along well with other dogs but would prefer an all adult home or a home with older kids. He loves spending his days chewing on a bone or snuggling with a human but still has plenty of "get up and go" if a pesky squirrel enters his territory.

As the song says, "We like the way you walk, we like the way you talk, Siouxsie Q." This four-year-old female with a midnight coat socializes well with other dogs, and even another kitty cat at the Cocker Inn®. She spends time licking the cat's ears and grooming him; probably because he's almost her size. In spite of her vision problems (she is nearly blind), she has lots of confidence and charges full steam ahead on leash-led walks. She's a candidate for surgery in one eye, which should regain its vision, but will always need a daily regimen of 4 eye drops. Why don't you "say that she'll be yours, Baby, all the time, Siouxsie Q."

Tucker is a sweet 2 year old buff boy with a natural tail. Tucker is sighted in only one eye. He has a small eye (microthalmia) which is sightless, but the vision in his other eye is just perfect. Tucker loves everyone - adults, kids, other dogs, everyone. He is house trained. He mastered the doggy door at his foster's mom house in about an hour. He rides wonderfully in the car and walks very nicely on a leash. Tucker would make a great addition to any family. If you are looking for lots of doggy kisses, Tucker is like no other.

Named after one of our larger presidents, McKinley showed up at the Cocker Inn® at weighing a whopping 37.4 lbs. Heavily matted, we were not sure what was under all the hair. After his shave, McKinley cleaned up to be a handsome 4-6 year old who gets along with everyone. His current campaign includes diet and exercise. He is ready to find his forever home. McKinley is hoping his Open Door Policy will win your vote.
I don't ever wanna know
No other shotgun rider beside me
Life ain't nothing but a dream, don't wanna be
Cruisin' through this dream without you

McGraw and Miranda knocked on the door of a Good Samaritan, they were matted messes with sticks and mud caked all over them. The Good Samaritan cleaned them up as best she could and made reservations at the Cocker Inn®. When McGraw first checked in, he was very skittish and looking for the door. After just a week, he settled in and learned to trust. Like his country heart throb namesake, our mild mannered 8 year old McGraw has a fan club. He follows his foster mom everywhere and enjoys being a lap dog. He is even giving her kisses now. His favorite petting spot for is under his ears and he just can't get enough. McGraw has "Faith" he will find his Shotgun Rider to cruise through his dream life.

When Miranda and McGraw knocked on a stranger's door, she had a gaping cut across her back. The kind lady took her to the vet and had her stitched up. We don't know what happened but the cut has healed. Miranda was in heat when we got her, but has now been spayed. This pretty three year old buff girl weighs about 18 pounds. Miranda is always smiling and wagging her tail. She no longer has muddy or calloused paws. Just like her namesake, Miranda has Roots and Wings and is ready to fly into her new home.

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.
