Cookie, the Cocker! Such a sweet name for such a sweet senior dog! She is a 10 year-old, white and tan Cocker Spaniel with brown tips on her ears. Cookie comes from a shelter in Texas. She ended up in the shelter due to family difficulties. Poor Cookie ended up in the backyard for several months and then went to the Texas shelter for several weeks before being transferred to Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue. This little lady has the sweetest face and eyes that say, “Thank you”!
She has low vision due to a cataract in her right eye and a lens luxation in the left eye, but somehow there is brightness in her eyes. Update: Since these pictures were taken, Cookie has had her left eye removed. She gets around just like all the other dogs without her vision causing any problems. Cookie has a gentle disposition and it breaks my heart to know that she was left out in the backyard for so long in her past. But now we are helping her. She has learned all about love and family companionship with her foster family. She does well with other dogs but will give a little growl if they get into her way or if she doesn’t want them there. She looks to her foster mom for affirmation; as if asking is she is doing is right or wrong.
Cookie is both house & crate trained. She is being treated for a chronic ear infection and will have her teeth cleaned before adoption. She will probably need a few extractions. She does have dry skin which is being treated with bathing, diet, and medication but her coat is soft. She loves attention and being petted. She is not as active as younger dogs but is living a good life in her golden years. Can you help her out with a loving home for the rest of her life?
We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any person for the wellbeing of the dog.
**UPDATE** Cookie now has a sponsor and her adoption fee has been paid. If you are interested in Cookie and have been approved for adoption she may be just the right girl for you!!!
Cookie is micro-chipped spayed and up-to-date on her shots. If you would like to adopt Cookie please fill out an online adoption application. Cookie’s adoption fee is $150.00

This beautiful buff & white Cocker/Clumber Spaniel mix loves going for walks on a leash and has plenty of energy but also likes to relax with you after calling him onto the furniture. When it’s time for dinner, he has no problem running the stairs. He has the activity level of a 9 year-old dog. Because he is part Clumber, he is solid muscle and weighs in at 45-lbs. He has a mass by his sternum that was tested negative for cancer, but he was given a clean bill-of-health from the vet and has no medical issues. He will make someone a terrific friend and companion.
Jacxs is a very loving, sweet boy and loves to show affection. He likes to roll around on his back and sides, and then wait for you to scratch his belly and talk to him. He loves to be scratched under his chin and the sides of his neck; he’ll let you know you are doing it right when he kisses your wrist at the same time. Basically, he is just a really big, loveable goofball.
If Jacxs is caught off guard, e.g., surprised or quickly approached, he will respond with a warning nip, therefore he is not fond of toddlers. If older children approach slowly, he loves the touch of a soft hand. He doesn’t take discipline from females well, but has shown improvement since his foster family has been teaching him the female is his alpha. He may have lived in an apartment prior to coming into rescue, as he likes to have someone around when going outside to potty, else he will cut the trip short and hurry back inside to be with his people. Who knew a dog would like to have someone around while going potty? He does need to be taken outside right before or after eating. He does well with other dogs, but doesn’t like them nearby when he’s eating or when they try to take his toys, but when it’s time for a treat, he patiently waits his turn. Jaxcs is not a barker, but will join the others after they start singing.
Jacxs is a complete gentleman in the car, even with the window down. He does not like to be crated, but deals with it. Instead and only if necessary, he prefers to be kept in a spare room. He is also very happy and content sleeping on the floor next to your bed, although he snores a bit. Did we mention that he is just a big, loveable goofball – with plenty of love to give?
