Cookie is our number 1 LONGEST RESIDENT, and has been waiting for her forever home since August 31, 2013. This sweet 6 and a half year old beauty came to us as a stray after the owner skipped town and left Cookie on the street. Thankfully, the neighbors knew her, and called us right away to come pick her up. Cookie spend the next 3 years in the shelter, just hoping and praying she would be noticed by an adopter, but that never happened. What did happen though, is that a staff member decided to bring Cookie into their home to foster, while we search for her forever home. Cookie has now been in foster care since November 2016, and we are thrilled to report that Cookie is the BEST house guest. Not only is Cookie 100000% house trained, but she literally didn't even have ONE accident. Cookie also is comfortable and happy in the crate, when necessary, although we quickly learned she could be trusted to be loose in the house when home alone or unsupervised. Cookie loves to run around in the yard, loves to play with toys, and takes treats super gently. Cookie loves all people who visit the home, she is super smart and listens very well, and she is the most amazing kisser and cuddler. Cookie has dog siblings right now, and although her fosters are taking it very slow, so far, so good! Cookie could either live as a solo dog, or maybe with one, laid back dog. Cookie's ideal home would be with savvy dog parents, who will love her, cherish her and keep her safe.
