Meet Jax, our boy from Louisiana. This handsome fellow is approximately 3 years old. Jax is active, inquisitive and loving.
He loves to explore and scavenge. His tail never stops wagging. If you are looking for a friend to run and hike with or just chill
and relax with, Jax is the boy for you. Jax recently completed heartworm treatment and is ready to romp his way into a new home.
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.

"Hey Babe, how about me and you get together and watch a little TV? We'll have some popcorn and do a little snuggling!.
I love to watch TV.....really!"
Meet Max, the TV watching couch potato of the Cocker Inn. He enjoys watching sports, soap operas and and a little reality TV
but his favorites are shows with dogs. He is hearing impaired and can't hear much but he watches closely and even "woofs" at them now
and then. His foster mom says that he is a real hoot. Max is a 6 year old black and white male who came into Rescue with a serious
ear condition which was remedied with ear a ablation surgery. He has healed nicely and will never have to endure that again. While
he is mostly deaf, he can probably hear muffled sounds and functions perfectly normal. He uses a doggy door, is totally house trained
and has never had an accident in his foster home. Max loves belly rubs and enjoys sleeping with his human. We are totally in love with
this sweet boy and according to his foster mom, he is just a "sweet and gentle boy".
If there were a "Hard Knocks" award, Sammi Sue would win, hands down. She was dumped at a shelter because "… she escapes and
she is blind in one eye. Afraid she is going to get hit by a car." Mmmmm, in her foster home she has never escaped because she is
an inside dog. She loves going outside and is always the last to come in because there is so much to explore. Indeed she is blind in
one eye. Our ophthalmologist theorized her left eye had been injured a while back that was not treated. She has a cataract in the
other eye which is dissolving. She has light perception in that eye which makes her very adept at avoiding furniture, walls and other
large objects. Her foster mom is not sure Sammi Sue knows she is vision impaired because she tears around the house and yard. On intake,
Sammi was also underweight, her coat was dry indicating she had poor nutrition and she was heavy heartworm positive. Sammi Sue has a
darling personality, loves attention, is housebroken and crate trained. She is around four years old and is a black and tan cockapoo.
If you are looking for a devoted companion, Sammi Sue is the dog for you.

I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
When we look at these beautiful girls, we can't help but think what a wonderful world it would be if we could find a loving home for them
where they could stay together. This mother/daughter pair has been together since Daisy was born and they are very bonded. Sable,
the mother is a 7 year old black and white merle parti who absolutely adores her chocolate and white merle daughter, 6 year old Daisy.
They are great with adults, kids and other dogs but Daisy is a bit too interested in her kitty friends. Sable is a good mom, constantly
checking on Daisy. And like most moms, she can be a bit overprotective at times but that's most likely Daisy is visually impaired but loves
to run, jump and climb. These darling girls came to us from a local shelter and you couldn't ask for a sweeter, more cuddly pair.
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.
