The perfect go-anywhere companion!
Hi, sweet thang! My name is Cookie, and I’m an 8-month-old Terrier mix spayed female, weighing in at 11 pounds. My health is in tip-top shape!
Though I may be petite, I am full of love and pawsitive energy. I just love everyone I meet and am up for any adventure. My favorite activities include being around humans, getting attention and praise, savoring treats, and playing chase with my doggie friends.
I came to TAP after being relinquished by my previous owner because I was regularly left alone too long during the day, and the neighbors complained about my barking. You see, I have moderate separation anxiety when my humans leave me behind, so I have the tendency to bark a bunch. However, I think that once I receive proper training, I will greatly improve in this area. After all, I’m a super smart little lady and a fast learner. As far as my other training goes, I’m almost fully potty-trained, and I’m already a pro at crate training. In fact, I’m learning how to relax while being inside a crate, and that has helped me with my barking when I’m left alone. Finally, my leash manners are a work in progress, as I have a little bit of leash reactivity when I see other doggies pass by me outside, but again, I know I’ll master them with the right training.
I think I’d do best in a home, rather than in an apartment or condo, because of my tendency to bark when I want to communicate. Doggie siblings would be A-OK, but I’d thrive around another confident pup who doesn’t mind a puppy like me who has a bunch of energy. I’m unsure about kitties at this time, but I’d love to have kiddos around – just as long as they understand and respect my boundaries, as well as give me my own space to relax and rest without being bothered.
Do we sound like a recipe for success? If so, my adoption fee is $500 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.
