Shelter Spotlight: Cookie Craves A Home

Cookie is the longest resident at the Hempstead Animal Shelter, and has been waiting for her forever home since August 31, 2013. This sweet 6 and a half year old beauty came to the shelter as a stray after her owner skipped town and left Cookie on the street. Thankfully, the neighbors knew her and called right away for someone to come pick her up.

Cookie spent the next 3 years in the shelter hoping she would be noticed by an adopter, but that never happened. What did happen though, is that a staff member decided to bring Cookie into their home to foster. Cookie has now been in foster care since November 2016, and she is the BEST house guest! Not only is Cookie 100% house trained, but she literally hasn’t even had ONE accident.

Cookie is also comfortable and happy in her crate when necessary, although she can be trusted to be loose in the house when home alone or unsupervised. Cookie loves to run around in the yard, play with toys, and takes treats super gently. Cookie loves all people who visit the home, she is super smart and listens very well. She is the most amazing kisser and cuddler.

Cookie has dog siblings right now, and although her fosters are taking it very slow, so far, so good! Cookie could either live as a solo dog, or maybe with one, laid back dog. Cookie’s ideal home would be with savvy dog parents, who will love her, cherish her and keep her safe.
