Alfie is such an appropriate name for the youngest resident of the Cocker Inn. Alfie means "little elf" and Alfie is definitely that! He is four to five months old and just full of energy. He demonstrates intelligence - he learned the doggy door within minutes of watching other dogs go through. And his big, brown eyes captivate everyone. We are working on housebreaking but he keeps his crate dry overnight. Alfie's natural tail wags all the time. He is friendly and gets along well with other dogs. Remember, we scrutinize puppy homes very closely, so get your application in and good luck.

Hank Williams is a 2-4 year old party animal who came to us after finding himself in a swampy Louisiana dog pound. This handsome black male with a long fluffy tail and one gorgeous blue eye is looking for a new friend or family to run around with. His daddy must have run around a bit too, because he is mostly Cocker Spaniel but has a bit of something else mixed in there too. This guy is one big love sponge who appears to love kids, dogs and all other humans. Hank is a totally awesome dog and would love to find a new home where he can settle down.

Haley is a 5 year old buff and white female who always has a smile on her face. She traveled all the way from Puerto Rico to get to the Cocker Inn. We're grateful to the Ashes to Glory Foster and Rehab Center in Manati, Puerto Rico for working with the CockerKids to bring Haley to Texas. She is a very happy girl and is especially happy to be living a life where she can now run free and not be confined to a chain. She arrived with a badly damaged eye which despite valiant efforts to save it, had to be removed. This doesn't stop Haley from enjoying her new life and looking forward to a forever home.

Looking for a lap dog? Awesome! Frannie is looking for a lap. But wants one all to herself. This 2 year old black female is an affectionate girl who would thrive in a home with someone who is willing to be patient and work with her. She loves to play ball but doesn't want to be bothered by kids or other dogs. Frannie would do best in a home with all adults and no kids. She is currently in a boarding facility awaiting a forever home since she doesn't play well with others at the Cocker Inn. She was invited to join our rescue program after she was seen running along a busy intersection in the Houston area. She was very scared and it took several days to catch her. We don't know what her past holds but she just needs to be shown some love and what it's like to have a forever home.
Deep and dark - the hoard towered over her; protecting her from strangers. There was always a spot in which to hide. The death of her owner exposed her to the world and Missy was not happy about that. Being left alone in the hoard was no big deal but being removed was absolutely terrifying. Equally terrifying was the week spent in a shelter and then being transported over half of Texas. At least her foster home had a good hiding spot behind the washing machine until that horrible man moved it and pulled her out.

But gradually Missy began to bond with her foster mom, excited to see her every morning and pawing at her for attention. Missy began to act like a normal dog as long as her foster dad wasn't home. Missy has come a long way since since that day in late April when she came into rescue. She needs as especially nurturing home. Surely there is someone out there who can give Missy the unconditional love she needs and continue bringing her out of her shell. For more information about Missy' behavior please complete an online adoption form.

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!

You may already know how to love but you'll truly discover how big your heart is when you meet this sweet angel. Naomi Grace is a 6-8 year old female who loves everyone including kids and other dogs. She was in bad shape when she came to us from a local shelter but with a little love and lot of TLC, this little girl is thriving. She loves being a shadow and can be found anywhere in the house or yard that her foster family goes. She loves stuffed animals and doesn't mind sharing. She uses a doggy door perfectly and loves to in the yard. She is visually impaired but does great in new surroundings because she sees shadows and has an excellent sniffer. Naomi Grace is quite the snuggle bug and they don't come any sweeter and friendly than her.

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.
Take me out to the ball game
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some milkbones and tennis balls
I don't care if I never come back...

If you're looking for an all around awesome new family member, you're gonna hit a grand slam with this little guy. Astro is a 4-5 year old male who is as sweet and friendly as they come. He is cuddly and lovable and loves to play ball. This little guy was confiscated in a drug raid and and was having seizures when he checked into the medical wing of the Cocker Inn. Our vets suspected that he had either gotten into the drugs or they were being given to him. With daily medication, the seizures have completely stopped. Don't let his health issues scare ya off because he is doing great and has LOTS of love to give.

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.
