At the shelter our volunteer watched the emaciated dog wobble toward her. Here was one a logical person would decline - advanced age, a
probable orthopedic problem, and cataracts were all obvious health issues. But she just could not leave him behind. This was one that
really needed us. Lewis had been left to fend for himself when his family abandoned him, locked in the house as they drove away
for good. Who knows if he even had water?
Despite the hardships, Lewis is a friendly. loving dog. We suspect he had a back injury or vertebra problem leaving him somewhat unsteady on his feet but mobile. He has gained weight in his foster home but you can still see his hip bones. We would love to find an adopter for him but a Forever Foster home would be outstanding!
|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! A doggy door is a necessity for this perfectly house trained pup. He loves nyla bones and going for rides in the car.|
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.
|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.|
I am Sam. Sam I am.
I'll eat green eggs
And I'll eat your ham.
I'll eat anything
that's why I'm chubby
But I'm the best dog EVER
I'm Sam I am
Sam is a happy go lucky 8-10 years old gentleman who was adopted thru the Cocker Inn several years ago. He was recently returned when his mom became ill and could no longer take care of him. He is house trained and lovable and attaches quickly to his human. He gets along well with dogs, cats and people of all ages. Sam would be a perfect companion for someone looking a sweet mature dog.
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.
