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!
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me Happpppppy, when skies are gray
You'll never know deeeeeear, how much I'll love you
Til you take me and love me away.
Emma is cheerful 6 year old female who is absolutely adorable. This little cutie is mostly blonde but we suspect that there
was a Merle somewhere in her bloodline because she has one gorgeous blue eye. She loves to go on long walks and loves stopping along
the way to chat with anyone and everyone who will talk to her. She gets along great with all of the other dogs in her foster home and
is totally housetrained. She came to us when her mom became terminally ill and could no longer take care of her. Emma is truly an awesome
girl and has SO much love to give.
"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.
My, oh, my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin' my way
Zippy is a 6 year old tan and white male who is happy happy happy! He loves everybody and always has a smile on his face. He first made his way into the Cocker Inn about two years ago but recently came back to us when the adopter passed away suddenly. This boy has a totally sunny disposition and is totally house trained.
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay wonderful feeling, wonderful day when you meet this sweet boy!
So you like older more mature dogs? AWESOME, so do we!! OLDER DOGS ROCK! They are sweet and lovable and cuddly and soft and laid back and house trained.
Nicky is a stately gentlemen that we just couldn't pass up on when he was calling out to us from a local shelter. This chocolate and white boy has sown his wild oats and is looking for someone to hang out with in the Lazy Boy. He is goofy and lovable and we absolutely adore this boy. He loves to take naps and just hang out with his human.
(CSRET has many seniors in our program and has had to limit our intake of older dogs because they are harder to find homes for. 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)
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.
