Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it - new home, new home

Hey there, my name is Franke and and I really long to be a part of it....a new family that is! I made my way to the Cocker Inn all the way from Central Texas where I discovered in a shelter. I'm only 2-3 years old and everyone just loves my long natural tail because it never stops wagging. I LOVE to run and play and am most happy with a squeaky toy in my mouth. When I first got here, I only weighed 20 lbs but they tell me I need to gain a few pounds. They also tell me that I'm a really good boy because I will sit when my having my leash put on, I love to ride in the car, I give LOTS of kisses and I LOVE being a lap dog. I've learned to use a doggy door and am mostly house trained too!

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.
Lately life has been tough for Missy. In March she lost her mom, her home and her siblings. She was further traumatized by temporarily being crated outside and then taken to a shelter. Missy came from a hoarding situation so socially she is extremely shy since she seldom met new people. The first thing Missy did in her foster home was hide behind the washing machine. In the ten days since, Missy has remained skittish but is becoming more interested in socializing, even excitedly greeting her foster mom. Missy is around 5 years old and housebroken. She needs a loving, calm home where she can flourish.

Sienna is a gorgeous 5-7 year old blonde female who is looking for her forever home. 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.
Nigel is a a handsome young chap who was made famous when he made the headlines of The Houston Press. This playful lad may be around a year old but still has LOTS of puppy in him. He loves to play ball and would love to have a large yard to play in. But at the end of the day,he loves to cuddle and wants nothing more than to be with his human. He loves taking his human for walks, too. Nigel is a big guy whose coat is more like a retriever so he won't require regular hair cuts and grooming like the others at the Cocker Inn. This guy would be the PERFECT dog for a family whose dad wants a retriever, mom wants a smaller dog and the kids want a playful dog to take camping. This dog has got it all! WOWZER! Get a load of this handsome guy!

Reggie is a 4-6 year old boy who is everything that you could ever want in a family dog....and MORE. This tall guy is constantly wagging his tail and loves everyone, both two legged and four. He came to us from a local shelter and needs to gain a few pounds but he loves to eat and will be fattened up in no time. Reggie loves tennis balls and appears to be house trained We are head over heels for this sweet boy!

This lovable hunk of a dog will be a treasured addition to any home.

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! He uses a doggy door and is perfectly house trained. He loves nyla bones and going for rides in the car too.
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.
