She hugged and kissed Cookie as the tears streamed down her face. She was beyond happy to get to adopt Cookie. Foster failures – when a foster parent winds up adopting their foster pet – happen all the time, but this was an unexpected surprise for Nicki and she was very emotional about it.
It’s been three years since Nicki officially adopted Cookie, and they are still loving life together! Cookie even has another doggy sibling who she loves to snuggle with. Cookie is one lucky pup to have such a loving family, and Nicki is one lucky human to have such a sweet dog!
Watch the emotional moment when Nicki finds out the surprise in the video below:
Being in a shelter can be very stressful for dogs. Fostering is very important because it not only gets the dog out of that stressful environment, but it also allows the dogs to feel what it’s like to be a pet, and it helps them break out of their shell and show their true personality. This will help them find their forever homes quicker. Consider fostering to help a pup like Cookie. And if you’re looking to get a dog, you should adopt and not shop!
