Cook is an owner surrender to GRRNT due to a change in his owner's circumstances. He is currently quite a bit overweight, and he has heartworms.  Cook will be with GRRNT for several weeks while we treat his heartworms and get him started on a weight loss program.


PROFILE

What do you say about a big ball of fluff? Cook is the happiest go lucky guy that will wake you up any morning with a big sneeze and smooch. He chases his tennis balls and loves walks, and doesn't wander or destroy anything. Just a big loveable guy who loves his belly scratched and doesn't go to bed til all the lights are out and he knows everyone is settled. Cook is not a barker, but would chase bunnies if he could. For 8 yrs old, and being quite a bit overweight, he has a lot of spunk left. Cook would be awesome in a family with teenage or older children, or really anyone who wants a perfect gentleman. This big guy is perfect as the only dog in the family (and prefers it that way). He just wants to be the center of the love and playtime with the family. 

Cook came to GRRNT quite overweight, and is currently on a diet to lose several pounds. He does have heatworms and will need to undergo treatment for them, but that can't be done until he is at a healthier weight. Cook's foster family is doing a great job helping him shed those pounds, and he is making progress toward his target weight. It will be a few months before Cook is ready for adoption.

Cook has completed all his heartworm treatment and is ready to find his forever home!  He is still a fairly active, playful dog, and loves to play ball. He is not interested in sharing his people or space with other dogs so he needs to be the only dog in the home, and when out on walks he prefers not to greet other dogs. He will need to continue to be active and keep his weight at a healthy level, and since he enjoys his walks that will be easier. Cook is a sweetheart. He wants to be near his people all the time, and would love to have a family where someone is home with him a good part of the day. He is a wonderful companion dog will be great company for the lucky family he chooses.


UPDATE
