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.

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

If dogs could talk, we're quite sure this girl would have a sad story to tell. Maggie Sue is a 7-9 year female old who checked into the Cocker Inn afraid of her own shadow. She was found her hiding in the corner of a cold kennel at a local shelter and she wouldn't make eye contact with anyone. After a few months with a very patient foster family and their kind doggy friends, this sweet girl has finally ventured out of her hiding place to mingle with the family. While she will only come around if everyone is sitting down, she is learning to trust and has started to relax. For the first two weeks, she was so scared that she slept with her eyes open but she finally feels safe enough to sleep. She has even been heard snoring. Maggie Sue is a precious girl who needs a forever home who is willing to be patient enough to earn her trust. She would also do best in a home with other dogs to make her feel safe.

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. 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.

Am I just the cutest little "Cocker Spaniel" or what? (hee hee hee) My name is Wiley and the desk clerk at the Cocker Inn wasn't wearing her glasses the day I came knocking, so she let me in. I was the right color so I just blended right in. Then it happened. She put her glasses on and looked real hard at me. I just looked at her and said, "Hey, what's up, Doc"? Well, long story short, my cute personality had already started to grow on her with so she decided to let me stay. But she said that I need to start looking for another home, pronto, because this is the Cocker Inn® and everybody else here is looking for a forever home, too. But just so you know, I am only 2 years old and would looooove to have a yard to run and play in.

Amazing Gracie, how sweet the girl! Gracie is an absolutely gorgeous girl who came to us from the "Big Easy" city of New Orleans. She was born on October 1, 2011 and lived with two senior citizens (sisters) until one passed away and the other couldn't take care of Gracie on her own. She was a bit overweight, her toenails were so long that they were curved and growing into her skin and her ears were badly infected. She is now on a diet, the toenails are trimmed and the ears are on their way to recovery in the medical wing on the Cocker Inn. With a little TLC, she is going to be as good as new and looking for her forever 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.
