Hi, my name is Cookie. For most of my life (about one and a half years) I've only known to live in a really large group of chihuahuas. I must have been on the bottom of the pecking order, because I tend to be submissive. But in my new foster home, everything is calm and I have really opened up. I love to play with Seymore my foster brother and I love to get hugs and cuddles from my human foster mom. I eat really well. I think I gained 1 pound over the last week. I was really skinny, I must have looked like Twiggy. I go out on walks and don't mind being leash walked. I love my sweater that my foster mom puts on me, otherwise I wouldn't like to walk because I would be freezing in the SF cold. I still need you to make sure to take me out so I learn how to pee and poop outside. I think in my first home I was trained to use a wee wee pad. I am sure I can become a real outgoing dog, but I need some time and a quiet environment where I can feel safe and loved.
