found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
It has been such a privilege knowing Cookie! Cookie is a gentle, joyful dog; she is filled with hope and faith, despite the fact that she came into rescue care quite tattered. And, while Cookie may have started life as a country bumpkin, she wants very much to be part of the bigger world in which she now finds herself.
Her foster care provider senses that Cookie may not have known an abundance of love before coming into foster care, and often appears to be in wonderment at the new life she has found in rescue. It is touching to watch her learn that food will come on a regular basis, toys are hers to play with, warm and soft beds are hers to lie on, and hands are gentle when touching her.
A dog who takes nothing for granted, Cookie appreciates every small gesture of affection, and she delights in the smallest kindnesses. Every home coming is a delight for Cookie, every meal a feast, and every toy is a treasure.
Cookie looks like a small lab, although her legs are longer and more slender. Her coat is shiny, soft and plush with a slight waviness; her fur is short-to-medium in length, and she has a slight bit of breaching on her legs. Her eyes are brown, and hold a warm, searching expression. Cookie is an elegant dog, and will be more so when she is fully "at home" - relaxed in the knowledge that she is loved, and secure in understanding the expectations of her family. Cookie’s loving nature also extends to her canine foster sister - the two of them play with abandon - wrestling, racing about, and engaging in tugs of war.
Cookie's movement style is graceful and beautiful - she has a fast, streaming run and can turn on a dime. Her energy level is moderate, but she revels in outdoor playtime and walks.
Cookie is exuberantly happy and abjectly grateful to be in foster care. She dances when it's mealtime. When she wags her tail, she wags her whole body.
Cookie’s excellent natural manners are a reflection of her own sweet and honest nature, but she has also proven a quick study in terms of more formal training. Cookie is an engaged and earnest student who is eager to please, and to learn new things. She is extremely responsive, and her eyes shine with joy when she is praised and encouraged. Cookie’s eye contact is direct, curious and imploring - she looks to her care providers for guidance, and makes sincere efforts to understand what is being asked of her.
Cookie is also observant and intuitive. She jumps with anticipation when she sees someone putting on their coat because she hopes it means she's going outside. Cookie knows the cue “sit” and is learning a reliable “down.” She is working on “stay” and “drop it”; she is an ardent fetcher, although she has not yet caught on that she needs to return the ball. She is house trained, and is working on leash skills.
Cookie is quiet and rarely makes a sound, except when left alone, when she whimpers just a bit. A champion snuggler, Cookie loves to be petted, and even to be hugged and kissed.
Cookie will bond profoundly with her adopter(s), and will reward their attention, time, and commitment with complete devotion.
