Meet Cookies and Cream -- we call her Cookie. 🍪 She is 7+ years old, 15 pounds. She may be a Chihuahua mixed with terrier, but she's low energy.
Her attitude is cat-like. If you're a Chi owner or a cat person, you know what I mean... adorable Cookie takes time to warm up - she's different with everyone. You'll just have to meet her! She decides on whether she wants to interact or sit near you. She'll nudge you with her nose when she wants to be scratched or play and is doing it more every day. Or, she'll tell you with her eyes.
Cookie's ideal adopter will take the time to learn her body language and mannerisms. She's hard of hearing so she takes her cues visually; if you startle her she may snap. But she's generally mellow and very well-behaved around the house. She is completely potty-trained in my home, sleeps in her crate overnight, and she sleeps in! She also naps on and off during the day and doesn't seek or need a lot of exercise or a fenced yard. She's a star on the leash and likes to go for a leisurely stroll. She's easy as dog maintenance goes...Cookie doesn't require much. Oh, and she almost never barks because she doesn't react to sounds--the delivery person, the mower, thunder, etc. are no problem for Cookie. The only barking I've seen is at other animals.
Cookie's looking for a lower energy home, perhaps where she's the only pet and can be the apple of your eye. Does Cookie sound like your type? If so, she's looking forward to meeting you!
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
