Cookie is a little Poodle mix born on 4/13/2014. He was returned to the Shelter in St Thomas after having been adopted. because his owner had a change in lifestyle that prohibited them from keeping him. Cookie is best with an adult home as we have no known experience with children. He has met many poodles and other dogs his size, but he is too much for them. He would need Standard Poodles or Labs to match his inability to play appropriately. He needs to learn some manners, but is not a bad dog, just clueless. An experienced dog owner who knows how to take a dog through training would be ideal. He is adorable and will make someone a wonderful companion. He is available for adoption now.
Cookie's current foster mom adores him and calls him her "little buddy" because he follows her everywhere. He is completely housebroken and house trained. The only time he gets mouthy is when he gets excited. He is extremely affectionate and cuddly. He loves toys and keeps himself occupied with them. Loves to chew on marrow bones, antlers, bully sticks, etc.
Cookie does not appear to have any separation anxiety. He gets up in the bay window when his foster mom leaves for work and all the neighbors have commented about seeing him in the window. He sleeps through the night (in bed with her...where else?). He is not a barker and only barks when he sees people or dogs outside when he is in the window. Loves to go for walks but gets excited and pulls on the leash a bit.
