Cookie is a very cute and tiny cream colored Dachshund mix who was rescued from the local shelter. She weighs 8.8 lbs. She has a healthy coat that is very soft to the touch. Cookie is three years old and is most likely mixed with Chihuahua, but she is all Doxie. Her looks, feet, walk, long body, toenails, snout, all Doxie. Even her ears are too, but they have an upward slant to them. The only thing that does not seem to be Dachshund-like is that Cookie does not really bark much. Cookie was surrendered to the shelter by her owner who claimed, “I am moving and I cannot take her with me.”

Cookie follows me everywhere because the pack does too. She is initially shy but gains confidence by the minute and actually adjusted to the rescue setting very quickly because she is very comfortable in the pack. She is curious and inquisitive about what I am doing. She prefers to sleep in a crate near me in the bedroom. I think she would prefer to sleep loose with my own Dachshunds on the big bed with me and burrow under the blankets. When Cookie first arrived at the rescue, she was insecure from having been dumped by her owners at the shelter, but she is so great with all dogs that she immediately huddled together with the other dogs on pet beds upon first entering my house to seek her comfort from them. Her personality is coming out each day and I love to see her running fast with her little legs so low to the ground! She has a clown side to her; she will start running around the yard real fast and it is kind of funny to watch. You can tell that she has some spunk to her; she is starting to pick up toys and shake them around, she is interactively playful with other dogs that also show an interest in playing, and she definitely loves when I bring out the treats!

The home we seek for Cookie is a home with another dog that will welcome her and accept her. I truly believe that Cookie is better off with another canine. She seems to look to the other dogs for support. If you have an already existing Dachshund, or any smaller dog whereby you are seeking a companion, consider Cookie. She is basically a quiet, calm dog who is completely potty-trained (she has never had an accident in my house. Of course, I leave a door open at all times and typically walk the dogs out. But Cookie already knows the dog door. She either knew it already or learned it in a day). Cookie is an endearing sweetheart that does not understand why her owner did not want her anymore. She just wants a home where her people will love her and not hurt her. Could that be you?

Cookie is spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. If you are interested in Cookie, please contact Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue at: The phone number to the rescue is: 626-340-9316. There is no need to phone the rescue until you have first submitted an interest via e-mail.

About Angel's Heart Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The primary focus is to rescue a few dogs from animal shelters who are red-listed for no other reason than there are too many dogs in an overpopulated state shelter system, and they simply need more time for someone to notice them. The intent is to locate friendly animals who could otherwise be great family pets if not for the misfortune of being homeless. Angel's Heart also takes in occasional strays but not owner surrenders. We can help by offering suggestions and tips for owners needing to rehome their pet.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The meet and greets are held in the homes of the rescuers and fosters by appointment only. A meet and greet is scheduled after an application is submitted and approved.

Our Adoption Process...

There is an application process, a meet and greet, and an adoption fee. Adoption fees are as follows: For dogs age one year or older- $200.00, for dogs 6 months to 11 months - $225.00, for most puppies under the age of 6 months - $250.00 and for certain pure-bred dogs - $300.00-$350.00. All of the rescued dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and fully vaccinated including rabies. Since most of the dogs come from city and county shelters, vet checks, medications, fecal tests, de-wormers, Front-line, and other services are also provided as needed. The adoption fee is considered a donation to the rescued animals within the adoption program of Angel's Heart Dog Rescue. Varying fees provide additional financial support for particular dogs who are harder-to-adopt cases or specialty medical cases. We strive to give you as much information as we can about the animal you wish to adopt by observing his or her behavior in a variety of settings and social situations.
