Does Sunshine on your shoulders make you happy? Well, then this little guy should make you ecstatic. This is Sunshine and he really is a little ray of Sunshine. He is about 7 ½ years old but if we didn’t know his birth-date you would think he was under 5. He has very unique eyes. One of them has blue and brown mixed together. When you look at his eyes it’s hard to believe how amazing they are. He is very curious about the cat in the house but he doesn’t chase it or terrorize it. Sunshine is a very sweet boy but his foster mom thinks he would do much better as an only dog. He likes to be on his own. As he has come out of his shell a little bit his foster mom has seen a cuddle side to him but if you are looking for a companion that is a bit more independent he is your guy. We don’t know how Sunshine will do with kids (yet) but his foster mom doesn’t see him being aggressive at all (even over food or toys). He is a little sneaky and likes to find tissue any place he can find it and rip it to shreds. He will also need work with potty training. He does go potty outside most of the time but doesn’t seem to know how to tell you if he really needs to go out when you aren’t offering. He also has been marking in his foster mom’s home but she think that it’s because there are 2 other males in the house and he’s just trying to establish his place. This may be something you will have to work with too.
Sunshine is current on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped. If you would like to meet Sunshine please fill out an online adoption application. Sunshine’s adoption fee is $250.

***** ADOPTED!!!!!!! *********
We’d like to introduce you to Emma!
Emma is 3 years old and is quiet, yet very affectionate! Emma loves to lay on the couch with her head on your lap and have her head and ears scratched, and of course, she loves her belly to be rubbed also.
Even at 3, Emma still has lots of puppy energy. She likes to have space to run in big circles in the back yard as fast as she can.
Emma greets guests well and doesn’t shied away from lovin’ from anyone.
Emma has graduated from obedience school, and when you tell her lets go to bed she goes right into her kennel. Emma sleeps well and gets up around 7AM, She will give you a little woof if she needs to get out sooner, but that is very rare.
She loves the morning, often letting out a cute, little howl when you are letting her out of her kennel in the morning.
She is used to having a doggy door, but when the dog door is not accessible to her, she will go to the door and paw at it a little or come and get us when she needs to go out. She has not had an accident inside since she was house trained as a puppy.
Emma loves to explore, she is nose to the ground on her walks and around the yard. At the dog park she greets other dogs submissively, may pee a little. She does get excited sometimes and may pee just a little if nervous but that is rare and hasn’t happened in a long time. If she is in a new home, that might happen a little until she gets used to everyone and her new situation.
She has a few toys that are her favorites. She really does love to chase after her toys and will bring them back to you to throw again after a brief game of tug of war.
Emma needs to be in a home without children, as she tends to get very jealous.
If you are interested in meeting Emma, please complete an adoption application online!
Emma’s adoption fee is $250.00

This is Mollie and she has a sad start to her story… Mollie and her brother were abandoned when her family left their home in January. Someone did come and “adopted” her brother. Mollie was “adopted” for a little while too but the people that took her brought her back and dumped her back into the empty house. This is where Mollie’s story starts to look up… the sweet next door neighbor found Mollie and tried to take care of this baby as best she could. She wasn’t able to take Mollie into her home as she has dogs of her own. She did her best to feed and look after Mollie. Not long after this RMCR got a call to see if we could help find Mollie the forever home she so deserves.
We don’t know exactly how old Mollie is but we guess she is around 7-8 years young. She is spunky and loves to chase her ball and play with her foster brothers and sister. She loves to cuddle with her foster mom and her foster mom enjoys that quite a bit.. she feels like velvet! She gives sweet little kisses and just loves to be loved. She is potty trained and crate trained. She seems to adapt to new situations very well. She is a true little bundle of joy. She does fine with the cat in the house.. doesn’t even seem to notice he is there. We don’t know how she will do with kids but her foster mom thinks if she does end up in a home with kids they need to be over the age of 10. Mollie needs someone that will pamper and love her to bits!
Mollie is spayed and micro-chipped. RMCR will ensure she is current on all her vaccinations. If you would like to meet Mollie please fill out an online adoption application. Mollie’s adoption fee is $250.

~~~~ There is an application for adoption pending for Coby~~~~
Hello there, my name is Coby. I was rescued from a hoarder and I am looking for a forever home where I will be loved unconditionally, as I will love you. I am neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all of my shots, and I am house trained. I obey commands such as come, down, and sit. I am about 2 ½ years old and I am a mix of Cocker Spaniel and perhaps another sporting or working breed, as I am a bigger than a pure bread Cocker and I look different too. I have the softest and most beautiful brown coat which just seems to float through the breeze as I run. I have a blue and a brown eye – very different indeed!
Because I am a very active dog I need a home where I will be able to run in a yard and have a lot of activity. Please do not put me in an apartment or a town home and hope that I will spend all of my outdoor time on a leash. Even though I am crate trained, when I need to be crated I have a large 3 x 3 ex pen so I have room to move around. My foster mom says that my manners are great and that I am a gentleman.
I came here really scared but now I am much more confident in most circumstances. I am very social and curious, but sometimes I still get nervous with new people. I can make adjustments once I know I can trust. I have been with young children in my foster home and I thought I would be ok with them. But when a nice family wanted to adopt me I got nervous with some children’s activity and I bit a couple of times. So maybe it’s not a good idea to put me with young children again. I also got very scared at a doggie wash so please don’t take me to one of those for a bath. When I meet new men it takes me a while to warm up to them so please be patient with me. I haven’t been around cats. I have been in a foster home with several other cockers and it’s a lot of fun. I would love to cuddle on the couch or in bed with you and sit at your feet as you work at your desk. I love to play and to be with people and with other dogs. I would like to have a dog buddy to live with, in addition to loving and understanding humans. I am obedient, listen carefully and learn quickly. I pull on my leash but my foster mom uses a harness and that helps me remember not to pull so much. If you keep working with me I will get better at leash training too. Actually, I am a wonderful, active young dog who would love a life filled with action, companionship, and family.
If you would like to meet Coby, please fill out an online adoption application. Coby’s adoption fee is $250.

Hello there! My name is Wally and I am 7 ½ years old. I am looking for a home where I can be loved forever and be taken care of and allowed to be a big part of a family. You see, I was rescued from a shelter after my owner took me there because he lost his home and didn’t have a place to live. He got me as a gift when I was just a puppy and I lived with him all this time as an outdoor dog and I would be alone without human companionship over 12 hours a day. I did like to chase the birds once in a while. I didn’t have any other dogs to play with and did not get much attention. Just the lonely backyard, and in the winter it would get really cold out there. When my owner took me to the shelter he said that I am friendly and that I was no trouble at all and never caused any problems but he just didn’t have a place for me anymore. I stayed in there for about a week until Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue came and took me out of there. What a happy day that was! But I was sick by then and they didn’t know what was wrong with me. My ears hurt a lot and when I urinated, blood came out. It was scary! I really needed a bath and a haircut too because I looked like an old shaggy dog instead of the cute Cocker Spaniel that I am now.
I just had to tell you all about me so that you will know how much I have been through to get to this point and how much Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue has done to help me so that I can be ready for a new life. I know what love feels like now and I really want to hang on to it. My foster mom says that I am such a good little dog. She says I am gentle and kind and that I remind her of a butterfly. I get along with all of the other dogs in my foster home and all of the people too. I love to hang out with my foster family. I love to cuddle and I give very soft doggie kisses. I am obedient and crate trained. You just won’t find a better dog than me.
I am not quite ready yet to leave my foster home because I need a little more time to heal from some surgery that was in the beginning of April. My foster mom will tell you all about it if you are interested. If you are interested in me, you could go ahead and submit an online adoption application. When I am ready, my adoption fee will be $250.00
Thank you for thinking of me.
If you are unable to adopt Wally but would like to help out with his medical bills (currently around $3000) please send all checks (made payable to Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue or RMCR) to -
Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue, Inc.
PO Box 482
Parker, CO 80134

Wally and the rest of us at RMCR thank you for your generous support.

Allow us to introduce Maggie! She is a four year old buff female Cocker Spaniel who is an owner surrender. The owners have had Maggie most of her life, but all family members are allergic to dogs and the situation is getting worse rather than improving, so with a heavy heart they are looking to find her a new home.
Maggie has been cared for very well. She is family and kid friendly and loves to play. She would benefit from some continued training but she is house trained and uses a dog door, so we highly recommend that her new owners have that facility available for her, otherwise there could be accidents. She is OK with other dogs and cats, although she likes to play with the cats who might view this behavior as aggression. Maggie has been known to escape a fenced yard when there were low spots in the fence line, so care will need to be taken to ensure gaps are closed. She loves her toys!
Maggie is spayed and up to date with her vaccinations. If she is not already microchipped, RMCR will ensure that’s done for her new owners.
If you are interested in Maggie, please make sure you have an online adoption application on file. Maggie’s adoption fee is $250.

Daisy is a nine year old black female Cocker Spaniel that is looking for a new home. She is an owner surrender. The family has two other dogs with which Daisy has never bonded. The family dynamics make it difficult to deal with the interactions of the three dogs and they feel Daisy would be better off in a different environment. Daisy is very sweet and loving dog and would do better with an owner that can give her the attention she deserves.
Daisy loves to be a lap dog, and gets along with her Foster’s dogs, two males about 7 years old. Daisy doesn’t seem to mind cats at all.
Daisy is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and is house trained. RMCR will ensure that she has a microchip if she does not already have one. If you are interested in Daisy, please make sure you have an online adoption application on file. Daisy’s adoption fee is $250.

Cita is a lovely mink or sable colored, spayed female Cocker Spaniel who is about 3 ½- 4 years old. She is quiet, obedient, polite, and loves to be a best friend. Cita was surrendered to us with her companion cocker, Paco, who you will see in a separate write up. They were best buddies in their home and were surrendered because their family was moving to a no-dog apartment. Cita is housetrained and crate trained and does well with other dogs. She has been in a home with a toddler and has done well. Cita loves to be outdoors looking around and enjoying the outdoor scents. It would be heavenly if Cita and Paco could be adopted together but if that is not on their future please consider having another companion dog in your home for Cita. Cita does attach to humans rather quickly and loves to shadow and cuddle with her humans. She is up to date on her immunizations, is microchipped and will have her teeth cleaned before adoption. She does need leash training so that she does not take so much control on a walk by pulling ahead. Cita is a wonderful and loving dog whom I would love to call my own.
If you would like to meet Cita please fill out an online adoption application.
Cita’s adoption fee is $250.00

This little cutie is Pippin. Pippin is 8 years old and is a sweetie. He does have some possession aggression and does not like to share his toys (even with his humans). Because of this we believe Pippin would do well as an only dog and without kids. He is potty trained and even though he isn’t thrilled about a crate he will go into one.
Pippin is current on his vaccinations is neutered and RMCR will make sure he is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Pippin please fill out an online adoption application. Pippin’s adoption fee is $250.
