Hi! My name is Milk and Cookies. I am two years old, 28 lbs, and probably a beagle mix. I am being fostered in Frederick, MD
My foster family has learned:
I greet new people and dogs with manners.
I really love other dogs (I follow my foster dog buddy everywhere). A home with another dog would be best to help guide me and play with me. 🐶
I love to run and explore in the yard (so many smells, so little time!) 🐾
I catch tennis balls like a champion. 🎾
If you see me carting around my stuffed toy and then the stuffed toy disappears, it's because I hid him in the couch for safe keeping, and if you find him I'll be glad to carry him around again. 🧸
I like to play and cuddle a little bit.
I am learning how to sit 🙂
I also love a good nap and I sleep all night in my crate with classical music and a kong filled with frozen peanut butter. Yum!
A home with a fenced yard would be best because I am can be nervous in new places and if I could, I would follow my nose everywhere.
So far, I have been respectful of the resident cat.
Hope to meet you soon,
Milk and Cookies
*While in foster care, Milk and Cookies has completed his heartworm treatment.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

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.
