ADOPTED ON 01-09-18 – Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
Cookie was rescued from a kill shelter and on the list to be PTS. Those that knew her knew at the shelter said she is a loving pet, that she is a gentle, social dog, and bonds very well with children, enjoys playing and activities with them. She is intelligent, responsive, learns easily and is not destructive. She is not aggressive gets along with other animals, is confident and independent–Cookie is a faithful and a pure companion.
It is difficult to sum up a dog’s personality when a dog is first picked up by animal control and brought to the dog pound. At the pound the primary focus is on two issues: physical health and temperament. A thorough exam of the dog is done to analyze any medical issues and then preventive medicine is done next. Through that process, Cookie has passed every test and is in a foster home up north now.
To say that Cookie is somewhat shy to strangers is an unfamiliar assessment and is misunderstood; she is an outgoing dog, friendly to everyone, but is devoted to her “pack.” Her shyness is misunderstood, she is careful and may be somewhat shy to strangers in an unfamiliar surrounding or circumstances. However, Cookie is a very unique, what is thought to be shyness is extremely loyal to the family and rarely leaves their side.
Cookie appreciates any affection she gets and is very eager to please—she learns very quickly and willingly wants to do what you are asking her to do. When you meet her, you see right away that she is smart, we believe that she gets that from her heritage. Her foster home has a variety of dogs for her to play and even though she weighs about 30 lbs, she still has some growing to do and a long life ahead of her.
If you are looking for a dog that you would like to take with you and be with all day, Cookie will likely be a great match for you. We are looking for someone who has a lot of time and attention to give to Cookie because she deserves nothing less. This adorable gal is looking for a loving family that will dote on her and treat her as she deserves–a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him. Don’t let her slip by—there is a lifetime of wonderful memories waiting for you!
