Cookie's Story...
Hi there, I'm Cookie! I've been living in a really stressful shelter since April. No one knows my full story but me, and we'll keep it that way. But ever since being placed with my foster, I no longer feel stressed out, and I'm even learning how to play games, relax, and follow rules. My mom says my perfect home IS...a home that can provide me with love, structure, and dedicated to helping me continue to work on following rules. Mom tries to keep me out of the kitchen when cooking for "safety reasons" (whatever those are), but I always walk in and nuzzle her to see if she'll give me some food...a home with kids is GREAT! I looooove ALL humans (I do, I do, I do!). .a home with low-energy, friendly, calm dogs. I like most other dogs, but I don't want them bugging me all the time, and I DEFINITELY don't want them sniffing and smelling my junk all the time. I'm the type of girl who will give you a signal that I want you to go away, so I only want to live with dogs who listen to other dogs' signals--and parents who understand and can read my dog language to know when I've had enough. .a home that will adopt me forever. I've had a lot of stress in my life, and I don't want to be shipped around anymore. It makes my eyes a little wet when I think about a family to call my own. My mom says my perfect home is NOT: .a home with cats, ferrets, mice, rats, lizards, birds, chinchillas, etc. NO EXCEPTIONS. I chase anything that moves, and I'm fast and strong. .a home without a STRONG 6' fence. I chase squirrels, birds, and anything else that comes into the back yard. I will chase them up a tree. I will chase them all along the fence. I'll even jump on the fence to catch them! My mom says I can't do that, but I keep doing it cuz it's fuuuuuun! a home that doesn't keep their eyes on me when the front door is open. Mom says that the door knob is a sound that makes me fidget, and I love being outside so much that I will RUN OUT THE OPEN DOOR the FIRST chance I get. So, I need a family that will continue to help me learn that I must plant my butt down in the living room before, during, and after a door is opened. Here's what my foster mom has to say about me: When we first brought Cookie into our home, I immediately wanted to change her name; I didn't like it. But, now that she's been with us for a few months, I can't think of a better name for her. Cookie is so sweet. She loves humans and follows us everywhere. If there is a closed door between us (like the bathroom door), she hits the door with her nose to try to open it. In fact, sometimes I leave the pantry door open just so she can close it. She's been known to accidentally lock herself in a room because she closes an open door--confused that the door swings two ways! Cookie is not a lovey, dovey type dog. You'll get the occasional licks on the face, but that's not her thing. Curling up next to you is her perfect past time, but she's also quite content in laying down and watching the outside world through a window. Cookie is very food motivated, and she will eat anything as long as it's not green. However, she has a sensitive stomach, so she'll need a grain-free, good quality dog food at home. And, NO PEOPLE FOOD. She'll have diarrhea for days. We feed her Taste of the Wild, and she's done great. It has been an absolutely joy having Cookie be a part of our family. Her and my dog Simon are inseparable. He doesn't know she's not going to be here forever, and it's going to be hard letting her go, but Cookie deserves the stars and moon, and she'll be here until we find them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cookie, a Salem American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Salem, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Salem.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Salem 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 Salem 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Salem paves the way for another one to be saved.
