Available Dogs COOPER (19-005)
COOPER (19-005) is an almost 2 year old boy who weighs 86 pounds. When he first came to us, he was anxious and tense but has since become more comfortable and has shown himself to be a sweet, intelligent and devoted companion who keeps a close eye on his people. He is curious about cats so his feline sibling would need to be dog savvy and tolerant of his desire to play. He is a high energy dog who will need a large, physically fenced yard and regular exercise. He loves to chew sticks and is still trying to figure out how to fetch a ball. Cooper loves to take car rides and does well in a car. He also does well with a harness on walks. He is house trained and has appropriate house manners most of the time, but sometimes needs reminding with a stern “no”. He craves attention from people he knows, loves to snuggle, gives kisses and will bark at most everything. Cooper will do best as the only dog in an adult-only home. He can be possessive of his toys and treats and other random objects that he may find in the home or yard, and he is initially cautious around strangers. This handsome boy has a lot of potential and, with some patience and direction will make an excellent life-long companion.
