Cookie Monster lived at a daycare center where he was terrorized by young children. He did not care for the constant attention of children who were not careful with him. When he came to the shelter he was very afraid and let people know that he did not want to be touched. After just a few days in the more quiet environment of the dog shelter, where people speak to him nicely and treat him gently, he became a different dog with the people he knows well. He is so grateful for a nice quiet place where people care how he feels, and what he wants. He adores most people now and is happy and friendly. He also likes to play now too. Because Cookie still may be unpredictable around children he is staying at the sanctuary forever, which makes him very happy!
