Facts about Cookie #2

  • Color: Black - With White

Cookie is a Labrador retriever mix sporting a black coat and markings of white on her chest and feet.  Cookie is a senior at 7 years of age and she weighs 45 pounds.

Cookie comes to the rescue after her former owner relinquished her to a kill shelter who felt that he couldn't provide her with the proper care. That is all behind her now because Cookie is eager to be part of a family that has an active lifestyle and the high energy that will be comparable to hers.

Her overall disposition is super confident and she thrives wholeheartedly on human attention.  She is lovingly gentle and thoroughly relishes, to the moon and back, a good hair brushing.  She likes nothing better than to be with her human caregivers.  She adores human interaction but she has not been tested or homed with other dogs, kids or cats. It is unknown how she will respond to those associations at this time.

She is house trained, although it is important to understand that sometimes dogs may have an accident or two as they adjust to a new home setting.  Cookie walks nicely on a leash for those long casual walks in the countryside or even in the city.  For any dog friendly activity that can be thought of, Cookie will gladly accompany you.  As for crate training, she is working on making that a gold star achievement for herself and is progressing nicely.

Cookie has a sweet personality anyone could easily fall for her.  Help make her fairytale dream come true and open your home to this wonderfully energetic bundle of joy to cherish for the rest of her days.

The fee for adoption is $250. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and transport fees.

About Dog Star Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dog Star Rescue is a grass-roots effort started by a group of dog lovers with experience in the rescue world. The name Dog Star comes from the common name for the star Sirius, reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (Greater Dog). The symbolism of the star as a guide to a safe passage is what we strive to do for our adoptable dogs as we find them a new life with a loving family.
We work closely with shelters in the South as well as the New England states to save the lives of loving and loyal dogs who have lost their way and find themselves on death row. Our volunteers get these dogs the medical and emotional care they need so they can transition into a loving forever home. All of our amazing members are unpaid volunteers with a passion for helping dogs. They spend significant time each week helping guide dogs to a wonderful new life. If you ask our volunteers, they'll tell you they do it for a wide variety of reasons, including personal satisfaction in helping address a nation wide problem, their love of dogs, and a desire to have fun socializing with like-minded people. DSR is always looking for new volunteers to join our group so if this sounds like something you would like to be a part of please contact us.

Come Meet Our Pets...

While DSR does not have a brick and mortar facility we do frequently host adoption events in Connecticut. These are wonderful opportunities to meet a variety of amazing dogs that are up for adoption. Check out our Facebook page for the most up to date listing of upcoming events.
Otherwise, dogs can be seen by appointment after completing the DSR application. Arrangements are made by the screening volunteer and coordinated with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested adopters are asked to complete an application to begin the adoption process. This valuable document helps us insure that we are finding the perfect match for both the dog and the family members. If your application looks like a good fit, you will be contacted by phone for an interview. This is an opportunity to learn more about the home life you offer and the known temperament and energy level of the dog that is available for adoption. In some cases we may find that a different adoptable dog may be more suitable for your lifestyle and would be brought to your attention. Next, you will speak with the previous foster families to learn more about the day to day needs and behavior of the dog as an extra measure to find the perfect match. In addition, your veterinarian will be contacted to confirm your dedication to the health and well being of your previous or current pets.
Finally DSR reserves the right to do a home inspection prior to the adoption approval.
While this may seem like a lengthy process it actually may only take a week or two. As a result you should only begin the adoption process when you are ready to welcome a dog into your home.
DSR makes every effort to insure our dogs are healthy, happy, and well cared for by our loving volunteers as they wait for their forever homes. All dogs are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and receive a health certificate before being transported. Our adoption fee is $450 and every penny goes towards the rescue of dogs in need.
