Dog rescued in Korea brings love to home in Village of Sanibel

About three years ago, Sharon Small of the Village of Sanibel mentioned to a friend who rescues mini pitchers that she would love “a soft, furry little dog to cuddle.”

She immediately got back to Small with the name of a foster mom in The Villages who was caring for a Shih Tzu.

She and her husband Larry went to see her and the rest is history.


“Weird part of this story is that Cookie came from Korea. There is a U.S. rescue organization by the name of Joshua’s Rescue. They rescued a few labs and two Shih Tzus. Labradors are a big thing in Korea because unfortunately they are considered a food source,” Small said.

Cookie has been living with the Smalls for three years. She is “adored.”
