Meet Cookie... or Cookies and Cream as we lovingly call her. She is a very sweet, loving and an easy going girl that just goes with the flow. She loves to get butt rubs and any attention you will give her. She does well with kids but will steal their toys If you are not paying attention. She also will help herself to food that is left on the counter, but only if no one is around to see her gobble it down. We have put her in two different crates but she is an escape artist. Initially she will go in her crate fine, but she definitely prefers to be out of her crate and hanging with her people. Cookie is house broken and does well outside alone in the fenced in yard. She does not do well around cats though. She has been around other dogs and seems fine, but would probably do best in a home where she is the only pet. She likes to be the only diva around to be spoiled. She LOVES to play with bubbles and play hide and seek (though she is not the best finder). She loves a tennis ball but they are no match for her teeth. She also loves car rides. She has mastered sit and we are working on paw and lay down. She is a slow learner but she is getting there. Cookie is a great dog with a lot of love to give and would make a wonderful addition to any family. Do you have room in your home and heart for this sweet girl? Are you interested in adopting this dog or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: www.jcapl.org. There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received. Completed applications can be sent via email to email@example.com , faxed to 919-300-5524 or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at PetSmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center). We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application. Thanks for thinking adoption!
BRUNO OCTOBER UPDATE - His transformation is AMAZING!!! You would not believe the change in this beautiful boy! When he arrived, he was very overweight, confused and sad. With walks, thyroid meds and a big yard to explore, he has dramatically dropped the pounds and gained so much more energy and silliness. He now gallops up and down the steps he struggled to climb up that first night. Bruno loves being inside with his foster mom but will sit at his favorite window and sound off at the delivery trucks, yard crews and kids playing in view - even hummingbirds! Bruno dances around when he sees the leash for his walks and loves being brushed. He feels so much better and is so ready to find his forever family! He knows they are out there somewhere looking for him too! BRUNO AUGUST UPDATE - Down to a spunky 95 pounds and jumped in the car ready to go!!! BRUNO UPDATE- Bruno has shed some excess weigh and is now down to 111 pounds and getting more active. He does have a thyroid issue and is taking medicine to control that (which is relatively cheap), so he is really ready for the next adventure in his life! Bruno is a handsome extra-large mixed breed weighing 129 pounds! He is 7.5 years old, house trained, heartworm negative, current on vaccines and pretty easy-going. He has a chill temperament but will alert you if strangers are about and not take them for granted, otherwise just quietly hanging out with his people is his favorite thing to do. He is dog social (does well at a dog park), but is not up for a rough-housing canine relationship. He has been fine with children, but we recommend no small children. Bruno needs to lose weight and although he is a large framed dog he is putting a strain on his body carrying the extra weight and showing weakness in his rear legs on stairs and we are working to help him lose those extra pounds. Bruno is a JCAPL alumni. He was adopted out at 3 months of age and has been returned, due to no fault of his. His adopter is ill and having to relocate to seek medical attention and leaving Bruno is heartbreaking. Are you interested in adopting Bruno or another JCAPL pet you have seen?
