Cookie: 2-year-old female black Lab mix 48 pounds spayed

Background: Confiscated by a local animal services agency, Cookie and her pal Taffy had been neglected and underfed by her former owner who stated his dogs were not interested in the food he was feeding them. Huh? The former owner allegedly brought both dogs to the shelter to be euthanized [what the heck?], wherein the shelter refused and immediately took custody of both dogs. Both dogs immediately gobbled down all food and treats offered by the shelter. We are delighted to have both Cookie and Taffy in our adoption program now.

What Cookie's foster says: Cookie came to us a few days ago. She suffered from neglect and was extremely malnourished. In the short time we have had her she has adjusted wonderfully. She is crate trained, appears to be housebroken, and does not pull on leash when walking. When strangers approach Cookie will look up at them and wait to be petted. She is a little cautious when approached by other dogs and will lean against me for reassurance. She loves being touched and petted and checks in with all members of my family to make sure we are there. She is not really interested in playing with toys or our other male lab at this time. She doesn't like being left outside unless with family and will try to escape. She was able to climb out of her kennel at the shelter. Cookie's is consumed with finding food. She will not chew on things that do not belong to her and surprisingly is not food aggressive but she will counter surf and ANY food is fair game. She shows extreme remorse when caught without us even saying anything. Cookie has a lot of weight to gain and hopefully her obsession with food will subside as she gets her girlish figure back. When our cat first came near her crate, Cookie cried and growled a little. On leash meeting, she touched noses with my kitty and wagged her tail. But later, Cookie seemed to want to chase our cat - not so good.

What Cookie's Rescue Rep says: Cookie is on a weight-gain program now as we endeavor to slowly put on some pounds. Really wondering what she will look like when she puts on the needed 20-25 pounds. Suspect she is a high energy dog. Would do great in a home with another dog. Cookie might (or might not) be okay in a home with a cat. Have no idea what Cookie is mixed with. Any guesses?

Medical Information: Besides her extremely underweight status, Cookie appears to be in good health. She is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and heartworm negative.

Cookie is located in: Vacaville.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
