About 2204-0207 Cooper (Off Site Foster)

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Black with White

Handsome, sweet Cooper with his shiny fur and shining eyes is a 3 year old pit bull mix in need of a loving home after being surrendered in April.  Full of curiosity and energy, Cooper, having been separated from his family and living in an overcrowded shelter, became both depressed and repetitively jumped up and down in his kennel, losing 30 lbs.  But he’s a resilient boy and has been an easygoing, cooperative companion in his current foster home. Overall, he is an exceptionally gentle, smart, loving dog.

He is house trained and crate-trained although being crated when alone has not been necessary.  His ideal forever home would include regular walks and a fenced in yard because he loves being outdoors and to run around (very fast and can stop on a dime). Because Cooper is so observant and inquisitive, he does pull sometimes, but he is showing some progress.  He loves treats, is eager to please, is great in the car, and okay with older children per his former owner.

The reason Cooper was surrendered was that he was not getting along with the other dog in the house; therefore, it is recommended that he be an only pet.  Also, the owner and shelter caretakers have noted that Cooper needs time to warm up to new people, so he should meet individuals one at a time with a person he trusts. This usually doesn’t take long, and when Cooper trusts, he is super affectionate and cuddly.  He doesn’t bark unless someone comes to the door and so far has not reacted to loud noises.  He is not a picky eater and does not guard his food or toys.  He takes treats gently.  All in all, Cooper’s foster parent believes that he truly is a dog who can easily capture your heart.  Please contact the shelter at 757-385-4444 for more info or to set up a meeting with Cooper 2204-0207
