Cookie is a sociable, friendly and playful little girl and will make a great family pet. She is people and child friendly and gets on well with all of the dogs she has met and the dogs in her foster home. Initially she wanted all the toys to herself and would hide them in her basket but now she will happily share food, toys and the water bowl with her foster brothers.
She is housetrained and can be left for up to 3 hours with no problems at all. Cookie is also crate trained.
Cookie has some basic training but still needs to work on sit and stay. However she is a quick learner and eager to please. She loves praise and will do anything for a treat! After some initial excitement Cookie walks well on the lead, she can also be let off leash and has great recall.
Cookie would love a home where someone has lots of time to spend with her, walking, playing games and snuggling up for cuddles and love. She loves everyone and would be happy in a home either with or without children. Cookie would be happy in a home either as a single dog, with lots of human company, or with another dog or dogs as a playmate.
From her fosterer “We've had Cookie living with us for just over a week now and it's like she's always lived here. She is a really playful, affectionate dog and gets on really well with my two other dogs and absolutely loves people, especially children.
She is great on the lead (she walks in between my two) and I've been brave enough to let her off the lead a couple of times in the last two days and she has been excellent - she has generally walked by my side and when she has gone on ahead always comes back straight away when called with a wagging tail and a "big grin" on her face.
She is good at night - settling down into her basket and loves being wrapped up in a blanket to sleep. She eats well and displays no food-aggression. She eats in the kitchen at the same time as my two cairns and generally sticks to her own bowl; if she wanders towards theirs she always goes back to her own if you tell her to.
She is an absolute delight; doesn't mind household noises - washing machine, hoover etc. and isn't bothered by traffic noises or the every day hustle and bustle out on the street. She was spayed this week and has recovered really well; her stitches are healing nicely and she will be having them removed next Friday. She is due her second vaccinations the week after next.”
