In Victorian England waif like children would stand on the streets hawking flowers for a "copper", i.e. a penny. Our little Copper, named for her beautiful copper colored coat, was just as waif like when found on the street, tiny, thin and with hair loss. Quickly treated for sarcoptic mange, her coat will be full again in a few weeks. She has also developed crystals in her urine which hopefully will be a short term problem. Copper has a small mouth and may need baby teeth removed by a vet. If you are up for a six month old puppy who is lively and sweet, get your application in now!

Will you be my V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E?

Sienna is a gorgeous 5-7 year old blonde female who is looking for her forever Valentine. She came to us from a local shelter and was in horrible condition. She was covered with fleas and her beautiful blonde coat was matted. To make matters worse, she had a cataract, ear infection, gall stone and crystals in her urine. But with a bit a TLC, she is as good as new. The gall stone has dissolved, the ear infection is gone and she is on a special food to prevent the crystals in her urine. This sweet and loving girl loves to be a lap dog and does well on house training when she is taken out frequently.

Hi all. Gabriella here. The CockerKids are calling me Gabby. They are all wondering how I made it to the CockerInn.

I was found with sarcoptic mange. I had no hair and the good folks at the Cocker Inn took a chance that I was a cocker. Oops. That didn't pan out. Of course once they got to know me, they said I could stay and they would find me a forever home.

Someone mentioned I might have Bassett in me. I'm long, low and my feet turn out. The bottom line I'm a sweet girl that likes everyone although I can be a little timid. I love running around the backyard. Belly rubs are the best. If you would like to meet me, contact I'll check my calendar and see if I can work you in. Hope to meet you soon.

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go, Jamaica

Yeah baby, Naomi here and I'm ready to go anywhere as long as I have a new family to go with. Bermuda, Galveston.....doesn't matter to me! I'm a pretty cool girl for 7 years old and love to just hang out. I use a doggy door and and am house trained and am really friendly with everyone. I even like other dogs. I don't see very well because of a cataract in my eye but it doesn't slow down this little party animal. Come on, let's party. By the way, I love those colorful little umbrellas in my water bowl.

So you like older more mature dogs? AWESOME! So do we!!

Garrett is a stately gentlemen that we just couldn't pass up on when he was calling out to us from a local shelter. This black and white boy has sown his wild oats and is looking for someone to hang out with in the Lazy Boy. Garrett is a low maintenance boy who is as quiet as a mouse and is totally house trained. He loves to take naps and just hang out with his human. This guy is a perfect gentleman who would love to have a laid back family to hang out with.

(The Cocker Inn has many seniors in our program and has had to limit our intake of older dogs because they have a harder time finding homes. Please consider opening your heart and homes for some of our more mature dogs who deserve to live out their lives in a loving home. It is very difficult for us to leave one behind in a cold shelter because nobody wants to adopt an older dog)

Found roaming the streets of Webster, we call him our Rags to Riches boy. Rags is a 5 year old boy who is house trained, loves everyone and gets along with other dogs. He has glaucoma in one eye and we are working on reducing the pressure. However he has great vision in the other eye so no issue with getting around. He loves to snuggle and sleep in bed with his human at night. He rides wonderfully in a car. Rags has finished his heartworm treatment and is anxious to go to his forever home. He will make a wonderful addition to any family.
Annie is one of those dogs that is always smiling. This happy girl came from a local shelter and is 5-6. Annie loves her human and will spend all day looking at you with her adoring eyes.

She is a very active girl that loves running around the backyard as fast as she can. She's a little wary of new dogs but once she gets to know them Annie will run and play with her new friends. She is ready for her forever home and hoping you will be it.

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.
"Beam me up Scotty"

Scotty is a 5-6 year old male who was found living in the woods after his owner passed away. He is an adorable little "Treker" who loves stuffed animals and tennis balls and runs at warp speed chasing them. He has more energy than a fully charged array of dilithium crystals but settles in nicely and LOVES to cuddle! He has an out of this world personality and keeps his foster parents laughing. This sweet boy would love to "live long and prosper" being someone's big lap dog. Would you put an end to Scotty's ongoing mission to seek out a new life and new family - to boldly go to a new forever home? This little guy appears to be house trained and will have you beaming with joy!

Ruh roh Raggy..Rooby rooby roo here and I can barely see you. Ziokes, who turned out the lights?

Scooby Doo is a groovy 7 year old sable boy who was shivering in his boots when the green van drove off and left him at the local shelter. It's still a mystery as to why he ended up in a shelter but he was saved by the brave CSRET Cocker sniffing detectives who discovered that it was probably because he has cataracts. He appears to see shadows and functions great once he finds way around. Did someone say Scooby snack?

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.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain".
-Vivian Greene

Zoey is a 3 year old female who knows all about learning how to dance in the rain. This sweet little girl came to us from a cruelty case and was one of many that were confiscated from a hoarder. She has an adorable under bite and is an absolute sweetheart. Zoey is currently in a boarding facility awaiting a foster home but would be tickled pink to find a forever home. This little girl may have seen lots of storms in her short 3 years but she is truly a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!

Listen to the wisdom of toothless ones.
-Ancient Proverb

Howdy, my name is Beau and I'm toofless. Well... almost. But my foster mom takes good care of what teef I have left. I found myself in the dungeons of a dog pound but the kind folks at the Cocker Inn fell in love with me and got me out of there. I had a hard time eating anything for a while because my teef were bad and when I got them cleaned, I lost 12 of them. I was missing 8 to begin with so that doesn't leave me much to chew with. But that's ok because I'm learning to eat without them and am getting lots of soft yummy food. My foster mom says that I may be an English Cocker because I'm a bit taller than the rest of the CockerKids. At 33 pounds, my ribs were showing but I'm filling out now that I can eat again and am getting some tasty soft food. Everyone tells me what a sweet and friendly boy I am. I love sleeping beside my foster mom's bed. I really like to trick her into petting me by rubbing my head on her hand. She instantly starts petting me so it's a really cool trick. And I'm learning the doggy door trick too. See, I may be almost toothless but I am really wise boy!

Col. Cocker Travis was running the plains with an independent pack. The pack was rounded up and Travis, the only cocker in the pack, was offered sanctuary by the CockerKids. Travis appears to be around four to five years old. He's been stationed at the Cocker Inn for over two years. During his induction physical, he was found to be heavily heartworm positive, so for a long time he underwent treatment and recovery and is now parasite free. Travis does have a few quirks, so he may not be the right dog for first time cocker owners. Travis is for the most part a friendly, affectionate dog, but he refuses to be groomed. Vehemently refuses to be groomed. The appearance of scissors or clippers put him on the defensive, but if you put the grooming tools away, he's your best friend again. Travis is available for reassignment to the right home, but we want to make sure he's a good match before we issue the transfer orders.

Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have a home with love tonight.

Star is a bashful 3-4 year old female whose only wish is to find a forever home with someone to love her. This sweet girl was living on the streets and was hit by a speeding vehicle which never slowed down for her. A kind person saw what happened, stopped and picked her up and took her to the closest animal shelter for care. Luckily, she was only bruised with a little road rash and had no broken bones. This sweet baby has apparently been mistreated in her short life. She is a bit shy when she first meets people but once she warms up, she she wants to be as close to her human as possible and longs to be a lap dog. Star's wish is to find a an all adult home with no children, cats or multiple dogs.

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.

Callie Jo is not our typical rescue. She checked in to the Cocker Inn® looking for a Kitty Club but took a really wrong turn. Callie Jo weighed in at 3 lbs and was estimated to be approximately 6 months old. She's been living among the CockerKids for way too long now, just waiting for someone to get her out of the doghouse. She has grown into a pretty calico girl that still acts like a kitten. She loves to dart around chasing anything that catches her eye. She is very social and never stops purring. She does tolerate some of the Cocker Inn residents, but is ready to check out. Who will let this Callie Jo entertain them? Send an email to or call the HotLine at 713-208-1314 to work out a change-of-address for this kitty among the cockers.
