Meet Cooper!

Cooper is a sweet home-body with a heart to please. He will need an adopter with an Eeyore calmness and a Tigger energy level. He loves to play fetch or play with other dogs and run around to investigate things. Much of his time is spent off leash galloping with his BC friends between his home and the barns on the farm. He has a very good recall.

Coop is afraid of men. With patience, time, kindness and really good treats, he will warm up to them. Cooper wants to be with his person and is often looking in the windows when out to play with the other dogs. This is mostly when there is a loud noise or something has startled him. He enjoys hanging out in his crate, which is fine with me. He is fully aware of what is going on in the house and ready to go with if outside is mentioned.

He has been exposed to sheep in a herding situation and really liked it. It’s very good for his confidence and brain. He could become good help on a farm or would appreciate the opportunity to work some sheep in a controlled situation. On his foster farm he has horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, geese and cats along with 1 old Jack Russel, 1 spry Corgi and 4 BC’s. One of the BC’s is also a foster and Cooper did very well with his introduction into the family pack.
At some point in his life he had some obedience training. He knows heal, sit and down. He shakes too, but this is sometimes a request to give him space.

Cooper is house trained, but because of his shy nature, should be kept close in the house for a couple weeks. He does not have a strong signal that he needs to go out. Cooper is so very worth the effort and time to win his heart. He is a happy, sweet clown.

To start the adoption process, please fill out our application and contact Cooper’s foster mom, Kristen at kstrecker24473@aol.com. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.

Cooper’s adoption fee is $300.

Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
