COOKIE was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 3 May 2016 and has an estimated weight of 11 pounds. COOKIE has been listed as a Rat Terrier. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is.
COOKIE would love a family that is active and can take her on long walks, hikes and adventures. She rides great in the car and has been friendly with everyone she has met so far and loves to snuggle on your lap. She would benefit with play dates with other dogs and would love to meet lots of new people. She loves to run and chase with the other dogs and loves to play with toys or chew on the hooves. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would act around them.
COOKIE is located in our kennel building and uses the extreme weather dog door to get in and out of her run. She has not had any accidents in the kennel. She would benefit from some training and we recommend that families spend time with her working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both COOKIE and her humans to learn more about each others personality and body language.
COOKIE will make a great family addition, she is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own.
COOKIE is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

COOKIE is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend.
