***** 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

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 -

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.

Hello there! I’m Symba.. No I’m not a lion or a cat at all, as you can see! I’m told it’s a silly name for a dog but I like it! It makes me feel tough! I am a sweet and playful guy! I love to cuddle and give sweet kisses. I found a ball and a few Kong toys at my new foster home and I run back and forth between all of them. I love to chase them and chew on them and then will bring them right back to you to throw for me again. My foster mom said she is very proud of me. I got into town after a long trip from Kansas City, MO with a bunch of other doggies. My foster mom took me to her home where I met my new foster brothers and sister and even a couple crazy cats. She was a little worried after such a stressful day that I would be a little scared and that I wouldn’t be too friendly but I proved her wrong! I love my foster siblings and the cats.. well.. whatever they are just cats. I’d rather give my foster mom or foster siblings my attention. I am crate trained and have had to sleep in a crate in one of my past homes, I also slept on some blankets on the floor but this foster mom lets me sleep in bed with her and my foster siblings! I love it! I love car rides and will sit in the back seat very calmly. I know how to sit but I’m not too fond of staying yet but my foster mom said she was going to work with me on it.
Symba is about 5 years old. His foster mom believes he is a Cocker Spaniel/Corgi mix. He is a total sweet heart and a big goof ball! He is over weight and will need a family willing to help him lose some of it. He does seem to have energy and would love to go for walks and play at a park with a ball. We believe he would lose weight very easily. Right now he needs help jumping into the car and getting on the bed because of his weight. BUT… once you meet him you WILL fall in love with his BIG fun personality! If you are lucky he will even crawl in your lap and give you a kiss!
Symba is current on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped. He is potty trained and has not had any accidents!! He is great at letting you know when he needs to go out. Symba’s adoption fee is $250. If you are interested in meeting Symba, please fill out an online adoption application.

If you have a thing for sweets then this is the girl for you! Sugar is a 5 to 6 year old little lady who was surrendered to us by her previous owner who had recently moved and was no longer able to keep her.
Not much is known about her past but it is assumed by her foster mom and veterinarian that she was bred frequently and as a result of that and perhaps a poor diet she has lost most of her eyesight. The best way to describe her condition is to say that if she were human she would be considered legally blind but she is still able to make out contrasts and movement and loves to tag along. Her foster mom says not to feel sorry for her though because she’s a remarkable little dog and inspires everyone she meets. Once she “maps” out her surroundings you can easily forget she’s impaired.
She’s great with other dogs, cats and kids but since snuggling up with someone on the couch for a nice nap is one of her favorite things to do she would also be happy having someone all to herself. She is house broken but might need a little patience while figuring out where things are, which doesn’t take long. Once that’s done she’ll let you know just like any sighted doggy that she is in need. A little extra care might be needed to make sure that her outdoor area is safe, but given that, she’ll get a long fine outside by herself and would do well with a doggy door. We think she has every right to be upset about all that she’s been through but instead she’s a happy little girl without a destructive bone in her body. She enjoys all of the things that any happy dog would but with an extra dose of sweetness and fortitude.
She has recently been spayed and had her teeth cleaned. She had an ear infection when she came to us but is in good shape now. She is also up to date on her shots. Even though she’s slightly on the chubby side she’s still petite and now that she’s out of the puppy making business and on a better diet she’ll be in shape in no time.
There is no doubt that this sweet little girl will be a loving and loyal companion to the lucky person/family that gives her the forever home she deserves.

Meet sweet little Nikki!! Nikki came to us from a hoarding situation in Oklahoma, with multiple health problems. She is a total lovebug, very gentle and happy with all people. Nikki sleeps in a large open metal crate and does fine with that. She walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. She is housetrained and loves all toys, especially soft squeaky toys.
Due to her prior situation, Nikki was not well cared for. We think she is about 10 years old. She has had severe allergies left untreated for a long time, which have caused possible permanent damage to her skin. She is currently on a course of prednisone and antihistamines and gets a skin and coat supplement with her food. She also has severely abscessed teeth, and will be having an extensive dental when she finishes her course of mediation toward the end of January. Additionally, Nikki has cataracts in both eyes, but this doesn’t stop her from getting along in the world!!
Now, Nikki would like to educate you about something– for humans, sight is our primary sense. However, for dogs, their primary sense is smell (“It has been estimated that a dog’s sense of smell is 100,000 times more powerful than a human’s.”), followed by hearing (“Dogs can hear at four times the distance humans can.”), then sight. Nikki adjusted to her foster home just fine after a thorough sniffing exploration to get the lay of the land. She goes up stairs just fine, and is learning the command ‘step’ in order to help her navigate down. She is very smart and has already figured out the stairs in her current tri-level home!
Nikki is fairly vocal, grunting and growling as she writhes around or plays. Also, since she can’t see other dogs posture when they approach her, she does tend to growl at them, although she is wagging her tail. She is not aggressive. Once she meets the dog, she gets along just fine with them (she is currently one of three cockers). Even though she can’t see, she is a jumper! She will jump baby gates in the house, and it was reported to us she can climb a 4 foot fence, so she would do best in a privacy-fenced yard.
Gwen Frederick, who previously adopted a blind dog from RMCR, has this to say about owning a sight-impaired dog: “I never would have imagined it but life with Lucy, my blind dog, has been no different than having a sighted dog. When I look back on the last 2 + years with Lucy, I can’t think of one problem that has come up as a result of her not being able to see. Since a dog’s main senses are their keen hearing and smell, she’s got an advantage. She knows when people are coming before I do. She maneuvers around my house like she can see. She knows where everything is and never runs into anything. I don’t know how she does it but it’s amazing to watch. Most of the time I forget she can’t see. When we go for our daily walks, she trots down the sidewalk ahead of me totally fearless, and when we end our walk back at my front gate, she turns in ahead of me because she knows we’re home. She knows her way around the yard too. I’d take her over any other sighted dog in a minute and can’t imagine life without her! She’s the perfect dog!”
Can you find it in your heart to give a sweet, sight-impaired doggie the chance to be your perfect dog?? Help Nikki find her forever home!
Nikki is spayed, current on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Nikki please fill out an online adoption application. Nikki’s adoption fee is $150.
