Critter Chronicles: Cookie & Sissy


Cookie and Sissy were housemates. They lived with a senior lady that went to live in an assisted living facility. They are both came in scared out of their wits and have now settled in very nicely and thrive on attention. In the right environment both will flourish, learn quickly and become more independent pooches. They can be adopted together or separately. Both are fine with older kids and other dogs. They have not lived with cats. Both dogs are endearing pooches that would love to be adopted sooner rather than later. Cookie is a real player and would love someone to play with. Sissy is a sweet cuddler. She will stay close and be the very best friend you could ever hope for. If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.
