Cookie is a 12-year old Maltese mix that weighs about 9 lbs, he's such a sweetheart and gives tiny little kisses! Cookie is blind and diabetic but still has such an explorer's personality, he'll walk around the whole house teaching himself the layout. When he wakes up he's trained to let out a few barks to you know he's ready to go potty. He does the same thing to let you know when he's hungry or thirsty and once he's gotten what he's asked for, goes right back to his bed. He absolutely loves being held and being with another human or even another dog. If you let him sleep with you he buries himself right into you. Cookie would do amazing in any home where he receives daily attention and has at least one person who can meet his needs. Because of his conditions he needs a little more direct care than some other dogs but it's an extremely rewarding feeling to bond with a dog who absolutely loves and needs you. He receives insulin twice daily and also gets eye drops as needed. if you are interested in Cookie, please complete the on-line application that can be found on our website: www.adoptmerescue.org or contact us for more information.
