Available For Adoption

Cookie Tinker - Kansas
Little Cookie came from Nebraska and is one seriously cute, active, fun Rat Terrier, wrapped in a 10 pound package. Her name was Cookie but her fostermom kept calling her "Tinkerbelle" because she flitted about so lightly. When it was time to list her name for Ratbone, "Tinker" got stuck on the end of "Cookie". Little Cookie may not be very big but she is a HUGE bundle of love. She likes being on a lap and will leap there whenever an opportunity presents. Of course, she may not sit still on that lap real long. Being petted stretches the time and she has to give some kisses, but then there are other things to attend to. She loves to play; she will shake her stuffed toys so hard it must rattle her little brain. She is practicing to be a Retriever; she might have a good shot at it if she wasn't so small. Cookie will run after a ball or toy, bring it back and jump on her foster mom's lap with it, ready to go again. We don't know how she is with cats - although it is doubtful she would hurt them - she might wear out their patience trying to play with them. Cookie gets along well with other dogs, other than an occasional growl and snip between her and Abebe. She lived with children before rescue and was good with them, but she may be too active for children under 3 years of age. This one is a sweetie who will love to love you. She would do best in an active household as she is no couch potato. A trip to the dog park to chase a ball or a nice walk or run in the neighborhood would be her idea of a fun time. Check her out, she might be the perfect match for you and at just 2-3 years old she has a lot of years to give.
