One smart…

Cookie is truly a smart cookie.

She recently passed her C.L.A.S.S. BA test and is working toward her MA. C.L.A.S.S. stands for Canine Life and Social Skills, and Cookie totally aced it after training on things like loose-leash walking, calm meet and greets, leave it, settling and more. Being a C.L.A.S.S. graduate means that Cookie got a neat ribbon and her new owner will get a really well-trained pooch.

But Cookie isn’t all business. The 6-year-old Pointer/Terrier mix is also a big, happy goofball. She loves her people friends — indeed, loyalty is the name of the game with this girl — and is a terrific companion. Cookie’s ideal home would be with a person or people who will continue her training — she enjoys challenging that big brain of hers — and provide her with equal parts outdoor fun time and indoor cuddle time. Cookie loves being active and playful. (She’s on the SPCA Trail team and would make a great jogging partner.) But she’s also great at chilling out and relaxing by herself. She frequently has sleepovers in the trainer’s office and is always a model tenant. 

Cookie is such an easygoing, good sport that she’s the go-to gal for dressing up in costume. However, she’s selective with her pooch pals and does not enjoy cats.

It would be wonderful if she could be the only dog in a forever family whose members are age 16 and up.

To meet Cookie, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor.
