Cookie Dough is a puppy who's already decided that he likes a playful variety of things - people, toys, activities and lots of other furry playmates.

This boy really likes getting lots of time from his fosters, especially their kisses and cuddles. Then he's off to play with their dogs - and their cats. He's come up with new games to play with his dog buddies, and he nicely navigates with the kitties. He has fun if they want to play. If they don't, he's content to leave them alone. Then in the evening, he'll sit with all the people, pups and cats to watch TV. He looks forward to getting his BarkBox, where he found his favorite rainbow toy (as shown in his cover picture). He doesn't ever want to let it go!

Cookie is potentially a champ as a walking buddy. He's enjoying leash training and already very good at leash walking on sidewalks; he just knows that parking lots are too hot this summer. At home, he's made a lot of progress on his crate-training, going inside to sleep with his toys and a peanut butter Kong. He's pretty quiet there when his fosters are away.

A smart boy, he understands that "crate means to go there and "outside means to potty there. He also understands "no and is learning about "sit. He is making a lot of progress on his house-training.

Cookie's foster calls him a "super dude who wants to please his people and will thrive in most environments. He will love a dog or cat sibling to sleep near at night. If he doesn't have a playful pet buddy, he will benefit from a play group or dog park nearby. Come meet this lovable boy!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
