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.”
