Cookie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Cookie's Story...


Cookie is a kind, loving dog who gets along with basically everyone and everything. Although she is a senior, she's still very curious and relatively active - she'd do well with an hour or two (depending on weather and pace) of walking a day. We estimate her to be around 10 years old.

Unfortunately, Cookie has developed separation anxiety over the last year or so. She'll need to be crated (or kept in a comparable enclosed space) when left by herself. I believe she might do best in a home with another dog for this reason. It would also be helpful for a new owner to create well-defined and consistent boundaries, as is generally the case for German Shepherds. Cookie will thrive with that type of structure. If you are experienced owner who knows how to do this and are looking for a sweet, loving dog, Cookie may be a good fit for you.

As part of the program I adopted Cookie from in 2015, medical care for the duration of Cookie's life can be included in the adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cookie, a Durham German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Durham, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Durham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Durham 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 Durham 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Durham paves the way for another one to be saved.
