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.

Joey has been Adopted!
Let me introduce you to 6 year old Joey. He is a very handsome black and white Cocker Spaniel with just a touch of brown on his muzzle. Joey came to us after his owner became unable to care for him due to illness and age. Joey is an interesting dog who is learning how to be a dog within society. In other words, Joey has lived since a puppy with an older man in a small apartment. He did not have the opportunity to interact with other dogs and few children. He would be taken out a few times a day for potty but did not get much exercise or activity. Joey was afraid to go outside without a leash when we first got him. Now he will go into the back yard but wants someone to be with him. He does better out there if there is a person and / or another dog or two with him. Joey has been isolated his entire life and the last couple of weeks have opened his eyes to an entire new world and he is changing into a new dog. He had to be slowly introduced to the other dogs in his foster home. At first he did not do well as he wanted to mount everyone, which caused some disagreements within the pack. However, after 4 days with slower and fewer introductions, and with using calming essential oils, an anxiety vest from Calming Companions, and some energy work and behavior training Joey is learning that other dogs are ok and that they can provide canine companionship for him. A rumble here and there with swift correction and re-direction is helping Joey very much. He has picked the dogs in his foster home with whom he will hang out without mounting. The others he still wants to mount or attack so they are kept separately when Joey is roaming free in the house. It has been challenging yet interesting working with Joey and seeing how intelligent he is. Joey will need a person who will continue to work consistently with his behavior challenges and socialization. Joey’s foster mom can answer your questions about him and his progress.
Joey is healthy and has a beautiful, soft coat. He was never given dog food, only human food which his owner would cook for him as he cooked his own food. He would eat only beef, chicken, turkey and pork chops, that’s it. They certainly were dinner companions. He had a vet check-up just before coming to us and the vet said that he had never seen a Cocker with such good ears. (A great promotion for home prepared meals for dogs). As an adopter you will be given instructions as how to do prepare home cooked meals if you desire to keep that up for Joey. In the foster home Joey is still getting his meat cooked with added veggies with the intention of trying to get him to transfer over to kibble if he will do so, but as his foster mom I can’t recommend highly enough the home cooked diet.
Joey will be microchipped, neutered, have a cherry eye repaired, and his teeth cleaned, as well as being up to date on his shots before adoption. If you would like to learn more about Joey and talk to his foster mom please fill out an adoption application on line and you will be contacted for an interview.
Joey’s adoption fee will be $250.00

~~~~ 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

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.

Meet Winston! This handsome little man is approximately 9 years old and is so full of love and spirit! Winston is a male Cocker Spaniel that was rescued from a shelter in Memphis, TN where he was due to be euthanized that same day. He had heart worms, double ear infections, both eyes were very infected, and he had a severe skin infection as well. It has been several months since he was rescued and he is now heart worm free (received his treatment in December) and his eyes and ears are all clear! He does suffer from chronic dry eye but it is very easily managed with daily eye drops…and he sits very still for them! He is finishing up his medication for his skin infection and it is almost 100% gone! Winston had a pretty tough life, but he is such a trooper and will make a wonderful furry addition to your family. He gets along great with dogs and cats, he LOVES the dog park, does well on and off leash, and is also kennel trained. Please consider welcoming Mr. Winston into your home where he will get all the love and special attention he deserves!
Winston is current on vaccinations, RMCR will make sure Winston is neutered and micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Winston please fill out an online adoption application. Winston’s adoption fee is $250.

Here we have Paco and Pepe. These cute boys are being surrendered because their current family is moving and can’t take them. Paco is the red cutie and is around 7 years old and his current family describes him as very fun loving, funny personality, full of energy and always on the go. He loves all kind of toys and is a “kid” at heart. Pepe is the black cutie and is about 9 years old and is described as being a very mellow and loving dog. These boys have grown up together and we would love to see them placed in a forever home together but we are willing to seperate them if you only have room for one in your home. They will need training as they still have accidents in the house. Their current family thinks that they will do fine with some training, as they have never gone though any before.
These boys are neutered, will be brought up current on vaccinations and will be micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Paco and Pepe, make sure you have filled out an online adoption application. Their adoption fee is $250 each.

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.

Hi, my name is Jojo and I am looking for a permanent home where I can be treated with love and respect. I have had a series of bad homes prior to coming to the Rescue. The one thing that hasn’t happened is my love for people. I love to meet new people and show off my wickedly long eyelashes. My favorite this to do is crawl up on the couch with my people and fall asleep with my head in their lap.
Jojo is a special dog. He has been in a series of bad homes which resulted in many issues with his skin. All have been treated but he has very rough skin on his belly and a bald spot along the middle part of his lower back and tail. The hair is growing back slowly and may never fill in completely. Through all of this, he still is very trusting of people. He gets along well with most dogs but has showed some location possessiveness. He is mostly good with housebreaking but needs to be taken outside immediately after eating.
Jojo is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered and is micro-chipped. Jojo is between 8-9 years old and his adoption fee is $250. If you are interested in meeting Jojo, please make sure you’ve completed an online adoption application.
