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. It feels like Velvet. Cookie’s paperwork says that she is three years old but in truth, I have never seen a three year old with teeth as white as Cookie’s. Her teeth say she is younger. Cookie 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 so 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.” She was very upset at having been dumped at the shelter by her owners.

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, 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, or play chase with another dog, and it is kind of funny to watch. You can tell that she has some spunk to her; she loves squeaky toys and to shake them around; she is interactively playful with other dogs that also show an interest in playing, and loves to participate in the ball throwing game, 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. She loves to wrestle and play chase with Chance, a Dachshund mix puppy also here at the rescue. Cookie and Chance would even be a great duo if one is looking for two dogs (though it is not being suggested nor is that our expectation). She seems to especially seek out and bond with the boy dogs. But with a playful girl, I think she would learn to play with a girl dog too. 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). She has not yet ventured to go through the doggie door – she seems to be afraid of it. 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cookie - 8.8 lbs!, a Yorba Linda Dachshund/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Chihuahua for sale in Yorba Linda, or seeking a Dachshund/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Yorba Linda.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Yorba Linda already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Yorba Linda breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Yorba Linda paves the way for another one to be saved.
