Hi! I’m Cooper, the cutest boy you’ll ever meet! If you’re looking for a devoted and fun best friend, I am definitely your guy!
I was surrendered to the nice folks at Animal Aid after my previous guardians had a baby and learned that I was absolutely terrified of her. They tried their best to make it work and described me as an “amazing dog”, but with another baby on the way, my overall happiness needed to be prioritized. Luckily, Animal Aid had some great fosters with no kids in the home that were ready to give me all the love and attention to ease my anxiety.
All of our animals are vaccinated, treated for parasites, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and cats are tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLv). All animals receive any necessary veterinary care (dentals, etc.) until the time of adoption.
It took me a few days to settle into my new environment, but now I am truly loving life!
I’m a really smart boy and know a few cues like “sit”, “lay down”, “sit pretty”, and “shake”! Even though I am no puppy, I can still learn tons if you’ve got a yummy treat for me! I am a bit overweight, but we are doing our best to slim me down with a healthy diet and zoomies all around the yard. I also have a dental scheduled to get a few teeth pulled on September 22. I have some mild anxiety around new things (like the water hose in the backyard and smaller entryways), but I overcome my fears very quickly with some loving guidance.
I get along with pups big and small and would likely love to have a brother or sister to play with! I would make an excellent pup for a family with no small kids, who are up for adventures, and ready for all the snuggles and kisses I have to offer!
Likes: Toys of all kinds! I tear and nibble on stuffies and love to chew! I love belly rubs and snuggles on the couch. I also like to play with other dogs and will do just about anything for a yummy treat!
Dislikes: Small kids under the age of 8! I am not the kind of dog that would do well around small children. Those kiddos can be so unpredictable and quick, they just make me too nervous! I also have shown some nervousness around new things, so I would love a patient guardian who can help me navigate my anxiety around certain situations.
