Welcome to Jim & Kellyn Zimmerlin's Cocker Spaniel web site... which most people simply call Zim Family Cockers, or simply Zim's. For 15 years, Jim and Kellyn were breeders of American Cocker Spaniel puppies, until retiring from dog breeding in 2010.
This site is full of information about the American Cocker Spaniel and also features hundreds of photos of the adorable puppies the Zims have raised over the years. But the most popular part of the site is the online Cocker forum... where Cocker lovers from all around the world share information and photos, and where hundreds of new friendships have been made among the Cocker fanatics in our online community.
