Soulmate pooches Cookie and Chispin are up for adoption in Alexandria

Bonded buddies Cookie and Chispin are inseparable, and the pair are looking to be adopted from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Cookie, a 12-year-old terrier mix, reportedly likes nothing more than to hang out with her closest companion, Chispin, a 10-year-old female hound mix.

The dogs are currently living with an AWLA foster family.

“This pair have been living their best life in the care of one of the AWLA‘s ‘Awesome Fosters’ while Cookie recovered from surgery, but even there they preferred to spend their time together curled in bed, watching TV on the couch, or just exploring the space,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow.

If you’d like to learn more about them or schedule time to meet them from their foster home, email AWLA at [email protected] or call 703-746-4774.
