Cookie was found wandering the streets in Puerto Rico in poor condition and very pregnant. The day after she was brought in to the shelter she birthed a litter of 9 beautiful sato pups. We first met them shortly after they were born and while of course we loved the puppies (who couldn’t!?), we instantly knew Cookie was a very special girl. As a young mom, at about 2 years old, she was so caring and attentive to her pups, but she was also so thrilled to get love and cuddles from us. Her soft, submissive but super happy personality was wonderful. We knew that we had to help this family find their furever homes.
Over the course of the next few months, we watched the litter grow, and Cookie get healthy and happier. As the litter grew, we started to see that about half the litter were starting to look like little mini-Cookies (sheltie mix), and the others we looking more like poodle or labradoodle-mixes – all were irresistible and inherited her wonderful personality. Once ready, we started bringing them here to NH 1 or 2 at a time.
Percy now lives in Weare, NH with his labradoodle fur-sister, and his new parents Shyanne and Joe. He’s now enjoying the lake-life and even got some time on the boat and the dock before the colder weather came in. Cookie followed shortly there-after. Alyssa, the groomer who was primping her up for her upcoming adoption event immediately fell in love with her and now she lives with her, her new daddy Phil and her 2 new fur-siblings, in Antrim, NH. Most recently Sonora ska “Sunny” and Betty Boop arrived together. Sunny will be leaving our shelter today with her new parents Kelli and John to head to her new home in Clifton Park, NY. And Betty will be going in the next few days to begin the rest of her wonderful life on a farm here in Weare with her new parents Wendy and Andy and their 4 beautiful girls. At the time of writing this post, Timi, one of the last of this family to come is scheduled to arrive next week.
Cookie is such an amazing girl, and her legacy is great – now impacting several lucky families between here and Puerto Rico. We were so blessed to be a part of it all.
