Cookie has been at the Mikey & Me kennels for the past year and he is finally ready to find his forever companion and home. Cookie is about 4 years old, he weighs about 50 pounds, he has a loyal and loving personality, and he is neutered and up to date on all vet care.
Cookie came to us with a fear of meeting new people and we now know that this was a result of never being trained or shown what acceptable behavior looks like. We tried, over time, to help him learn not to be afraid but we could never get past him wanting to lunge up in a self-protective manner when he encountered a person he had never met. Cookie loves his toys and he takes his food and treats very gently.
In an effort to help Cookie further, we raised funds last summer (thanks to so many of you that contributed) to put him through an extensive, two week, in-house training program with Off Leash K9 Training in Lansing. Cookie responded very well to his trainer and he completed his training on December 7th. Since that time, I have had Cookie meet quite a few new people without incident and he is continuing his training regimen under our care.
We are looking to place Cookie with a single person or couple that is looking for a well trained dog and that will continue working with him so he will be successful in his new home. When we locate the right situation for Cookie, I will provide his person with a complete training lesson along with his training equipment. We also have a lifetime guarantee through Off Leash K9 training and his adopter would be able to attend a training refresher there, if needed.
Thank you for considering Cookie; please share his story if you can to help us find his forever home. He is such a sweet and loyal dog and he so very much deserves to be in a loving home and out of the kennel environment.
Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue microchips all dogs and cats before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the shoulder blades and are another form of identification should the animal get lost. The microchips are registered to Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue. The adopter's information is added once the adoption is complete. The adopter is responsible for a $19.99/Year registration fee or a $69.00/Lifetime registration fee to change information. Dogs and Cats still need to have collar with tags should they get lost.
