My Story

Cookie Monster is a smart, easy-going young boy who is looking for an active home with his very own people to love furever. Now, Cookie Monster is no monster at all, though his genuine happiness and zest for life is monstrously contagious! Seriously, this young boy LOVES all things in life, and he does his best persuading others to join him in his adventure to enjoy all things life has to offer. Despite his young age, Cookie is a "smart cookie" and has been good learning a number of basic cues during his time in his foster home. He is an avid worker and eager to please; he will thrive with someone who embraces positive reinforcement training so he can continue to excel in all the things he has yet to learn. While Cookie enjoys playing outdoors with his foster siblings on a nice day, he is also keen to chill in the shade for an afternoon nap, or hang out by your feet as you enjoy the evening. He will be the pyrfect companion for someone who is looking for a do-everything-together but easy-going pooch. We are pawsitive that Cookie Monster will win your heart over in no time!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
