Cookie is patiently waiting for his forever home in our Southampton kennels.
Cookie came to us a few months ago after he was going to be pts by his previous owner due to his behavioral issues. He has had 3 homes in his short 11 months of life prior to coming to us
Cookie is an adorable boy, he absolutely loves fuss and attention but does have issues with mouthing and jumping up- this isn’t just typical “puppy” behavior sadly, it is lack of socialization as a puppy as we are seeing all too often now with dogs from lock down.
Cookie’s behavior has improved over the past month or so with the team of GSRS volunteers at kennels but he will need an experienced rescue home that has a lot of patience and perseverance as once he is in a home the hard work will start .
We feel that any potential adopter might possibly need to enlist the help of a behaviorist.
He needs to be the only dog to begin with as he requires a lot of attention and is a no with children due to his behavior. In time he could possibly live with another dog.
He needs an active home as he has a lot of energy but really is the most adorable dog and is finding kennels quite stressful
If you have previous German shepherd experience and feel you can give Cookie the consistency, time and patience that he needs please go to our adoption page and complete the adoption application form .
