A big welcome to our COOPER!! This darling smooth coated red and white boy is 18 months old and 39 lbs of fun. He is as sweet as he can be and just a bit shy but made himself at home in his foster home quickly. He is a very good guest and apparently house broken as he’s never had an accident while in rescue. COOPER is crate trained and sleeps quietly in his crate all night. What a GOOD boy! He is affectionate and loving and snuggles up on the couch like no other dog I’ve known! He has tried to chew a couple of inappropriate items but mom redirected him to the toys and deer antlers provided here at his foster home and that did the trick.
COOPER shares toys and food with no aggression or possessiveness shown toward the 4 border collies that live here. He assists our resident digger (Gael) but on his own not a digger as such. He barks rarely and is friendly tho shy with other dogs and people. GOOD DOG! COOPER and the resident cat….Pucklechurch….get along just fine. COOP doesn’t chase her, he gives her space and Puckle appreciates him for being respectful!
At such a young age COOPER is busy running, wrestling and generally having fun with the younger dogs that are here. He settles nicely but will need an active home. He walks on lead a bit warily and although he rides well in a car needs some encouragement to “load up”!
COOPER is ready to find his forever home and will most likely do best in a home with another dog for confidence building. He will do well wherever he goes because he is sweet and a love but whoever’s is lucky to adopt him will need to go slowly as this shy boy needs to be handled gently. COOPER is ready to go home.
