COOPER - Born 6/23/15 M. Cooper is a very handsome boy with a beautiful, soft reddish gold coat. This love bug was an owner surrender due to resource guarding soft objects and counter surfing. He has come so far, so quickly, with consistency, patience, and exercise and is like a different dog! Cooper will need an experienced owner that will help him continue to perfect his doggie manners. Cooper knows basic commands like sit, down, heel, wait, shake, and load up and he is becoming reliable with the commands come, stay, off, drop it, and leave it. He is 100% house broken and has even learned to ring bells to go outside to potty. Cooper should have access to a large crate for sleeping in and for when he needs to stay home alone during for the first few weeks while he adjusts to his new home. Cooper’s new family should be active and retired or work from home because he needs to burn off his teenage energy with daily exercise. He loves walks, hikes, fetch, playing in any amount of water or snow, car rides, and meeting new people/dogs. He would be the perfect companion for someone who skis, snowshoes, camps, hikes, bikes, or swims. Cooper has met cats and has not shown any aggression other than curiosity. Cooper has spent time at doggie day camp and gets along with other dogs he meets. He currently lives with our dog, who is the alpha, and loves having a buddy, but another dog is not a requirement for adoption. This 76 pound red head does fine with baths and nail trimming at home or at the groomer. Because of Cooper’s history of guarding soft objects and his propensity to pull apart stuffed animals, he will need an adult only family even though he loves kids.  Physical fence or invisible fence are mandatory for Cooper, with professional training for first time invisible fence users. Because we want Cooper to have life long success with a family, it is mandatory that his new family commit to formal obedience training with paid receipt for training required at time of adoption. Mr Cooper, or Coopie, as we affectionately call him, needs someone to continue to give him stability and love
