Out of State and Canadian adopters are welcome. We do not ship our dogs cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Cookie is a quiet little lady with an expressive face
framed by long velvety ears. She spent the first 4 years of her life in a puppy
mill, living in a cage with very little human contact. When Cookie came into Rescue she was
terrified and had no idea what it meant to be a dog, much less what it meant to
be LOVED. At first she spent much of her
time trembling and hiding under furniture, but she is coming out of her shell
and gets more confident and affectionate every day. She loves to be held and
petted, appreciates a good tummy rub, and follows her foster mom around like a
Cookie is well-behaved and is eager to please once she
understands what is being asked of her. She is learning to come when called,
rides nicely in the car, and loves going for walks (she prefers a harness and
strongly protests when a leash is attached to her collar). Cookie is housetrained but must be let out
regularly because she is still too shy to ask to go out on her own. She seems
to feel safe in her kennel and sleeps there at night, sometimes also retreating
to it during the day when things get too hectic for her. Cookie was
experiencing some skin problems and hair loss when she came into Rescue, but
the condition has been treated and her coat is filling in nicely.
Cookie would probably do best in a home with older
children and a quiet environment because too much activity is overwhelming for
her. She gets along well with other dogs, both male and female, and often looks
to her foster brother and sister for support when she is unsure of what is
happening around her. She has not been
exposed directly to cats at this time, and shows no interest when walking by kitties
at the pet store. She is very passive and I do not think cats would be a
problem. Cookie needs a lot of patience,
understanding, and love to help her build confidence and reach her full
potential. She is desperately looking for someone to trust and bond with and in
return promises to be one of the most
loyal, loving companions you will ever have!
Out of State and Canadian adopters are welcome. We do not ship our
dogs cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them
to go by ground transport.

YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport.

We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
