This exuberant boy would love an active home with a doggy friend! Cooper LOVES playing with dogs but needs a friend his size or larger to deal with his play style. A fenced yard is also important, he's definitely not the apartment type.
As enthusiastic as he is with dogs, he is shy with new people and will avoid them if possible. He needs a home with a calm, firm owner (and hopefully a confident doggy companion!) to help him learn to trust new people. He has been in three foster homes in his travels and has bonded quickly to his new foster moms in all of them.
Cooper is crate trained, working on his obedience commands and good riding in the car. In his current foster home he goes everywhere with his foster mom to work on his social skills. He has been okay with cats but if they are the only available playmates he will try to engage them in a game.
He is very affectionate after he has accepted a new human friend. Every time he comes out of his crate (even if he's only been in a short period of time) he greets you like you've been gone all day! He's made great progress in dealing with new people and in the right home he will blossom.
Cooper is neutered and up to date on his vet work. For more information about this interesting boy please call Karin, 540-272-0470 or email email@example.com.
