If you like Pinterest and Fixer Upper, you've going to LOVE this little guy.
Doobie is a 4-5 year old black male who is a true diamond in the ruff. We don't know the history behind this little guy but he was shivering after being abandoned at a local shelter. While at the shelter, he managed to escape and was eventually caught with a net, only adding to the fear that he was already feeling. By the time he made it to the Cocker Inn, he was scared of everything and was in full blown fight or flight mode. For about 2 weeks, he wouldn't let anyone touch him and we feared the worst for his fate. But slowly, he began warming up to people and began allowing short pats on the head. While still a bit cautious of strangers, he has come a very long way and is now enjoying the affection he gets in his foster home. He is totally house trained and loves spending his time either outside hunting squirrels or napping inside on his bed. He still has a way to go with his trust issues but for someone who is dog savvy and is willing to work with him and continue the training that he's had, he is an amazing dog.
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.
"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".
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 loves to be with her humans and chewing on bones. Zoey would love to be in a home with a doggy door as she really enjoys going
in and out all the time. She gets along with adults and kids as well as other dogs. She enjoys riding in the car. She is one very
happy little girl who loves to snuggle. Please consider giving Zoey her forever home.
Listen to the wisdom of toothless ones.
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!
I'm the Coal Miners Daughter, Loretta Lynn. When I left Butcher Holler, I headed for the Cocker Inn. I'm a 6 year old girl with one
blue eye and some merle highlights. My blue eye was crying in the rain when my former dad left me at the shelter. My mom was sick and he
couldn't take care of me anymore. It was a sad day and I was scared, but since checking in to the Cocker Inn I've got my smile back. I had
a cyst removed from my ear and a dental cleaning. A girl needs pearly whites if she's singing on stage. Just like my namesake, I'm a happy
girl and get along with everyone. I'm ready for my new home. Until then, I'm enrolled in the Wimberley Walk Waddle and Wag program. I'll be
working to get my svelte figure. Send in your applications. I'll have my agent review them and forward me the best ones for consideration.
Hope to meet you on tour soon.
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.

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
firstname.lastname@example.org or call the HotLine at 713-208-1314 to work out a change-of-address
for this kitty among the cockers.
