Project Description

If you’re looking for a good natured, gentle best friend who’s a bit of a character, you’ve got to meet Cooper! He’s eight years old and at close to a perfect 64 pounds, has never sniffed out a morsel of food he doesn’t love. “Dog biscuits, veggies, cream puffs .  . . love it all!” Cooper comes to us after he was left with a rescue partner by a family who could not keep him.

Cooper settled in nicely with his foster mom. He’s house trained and finds his crate a comfortable “den.” Cooper knows some basic commands, is a friendly greeter and loves riding in the car – best to keep the windows rolled up though! He gets along well with other dogs, ignores cats and is a friend to all people big and small and has been gentle with older folks. When we asked Cooper about his faves, he was quick to woof: “Going on long walks or a run every day, sunbathing on the deck, any and all outdoor activities (except swimming) and destuffing toys! I love being close and cuddling with you and having some couch potato time too!”

Cooper’s rescue foster mom tells us more:

“I love how loving Cooper can be; he is so kind and friendly. All he wants is to be loved and get good treats and toys. I love how when I check on him outside, he is sprawled in the sun on the deck like he owns the yard.

“The best spot for Cooper would be a home motivated to keep him healthy and monitor a healthy weight for him. A perfect home would be one where Cooper can enjoy the outdoors and there are opportunities for exercise every day. He’s been great on camping trips as well as visits with me to a retirement home where I work. Cooper may be eight years old, but his spirit and energy are very young!”

PS. We treated Cooper to a dental cleaning and he’s looking forward to showing you his pearly white smile when you come to visit!
