Hello. My name is Sugar Cookie but my foster family calls me Sugar or Sug most of the time. They are really awesome folks who have been helping me to relax and recuperate since last December. When I met them I had a severely broken hind leg that could not be fixed because it was an old injury and had fused in the wrong position. That made my leg too short to touch the ground. After visits to the Vet for evaluation and x-rays it was determined that in order to make my life pain free it had to go so I am now what you call a tripawd. It doesn’t slow me down and it only took a very little while for me to
adjust as I had not been using the old leg anyway. I am not a rowdy type girl and prefer to be with other nice dogs and chillax on the back patio in the sun. I’m not good at long hikes and runs but I do like to take a walk with my foster folks and my foster brothers from time to time.

I have to tell you all that, even though I had a not so great beginning, I adore people. I am a lover for sure and will sit for hours as long as you are petting me. I can be a bit “needy” when it comes to attention but if my foster parents say that’s enough I listen and just go lay down. My foster brothers can be very rowdy and barky in the backyard at most anything that passes by, but I prefer to watch and stay quiet. Same with strangers ringing the doorbell or knocking. My brothers sound like they might want to eat the person standing outside but I just wait for them to come in and pet me. I’m a really good girl and my brothers are all talk and no action and wouldn’t hurt anyone at all. They just like to sound tough.

I have not met a person I don’t like and my fosters say that’s a great asset for a pup like me to have. I am between 1-1 1/2 years old and I am crate trained, house trained, and I have had all my necessary shots and I am spayed too. Isn’t that great? I get along famously with my foster brothers and people who come to visit. There is also a cat here and I’m not even interested in her.

If you would like to meet me, my foster parents say you need to fill out an application and once you are approved, we can meet and chat, as long as you pet me, of course. I am currently being fostered in Rio Rico and I am ready for my next great adventure. I hope to hear from you real soon.


The first step to meeting any of our dogs is to submit an application. It in no way obligates you to adopt, it is simply part of our process. If the dog you are interested in is adopted before you can meet them or if we do not currently have a dog you are interested in we still encourage you to go through the approval process. Then you will be pre-approved and ready to adopt when a dog does come along that you are interested in.
