Adoptable Dog of the Week-Cooper

PetGuide logo

Who could possibly resist this charming underbite? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Cooper, a 2 years old mixed breed dog from Holly Springs, North Carolina. Cooper had his DNA tested and he’s a mix of Labrador Retriever, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Chinese Shar-Pei. He is neutered, housetrained, crate trained, and up to date with his vaccinations. Cooper needs to be the only pet in the household, but he gets along great with children.

A big boy with a big heart, Cooper weighs 60 pounds and has a goofy, playful personality. He’ll love doing zoomies in the backyard or going on a run with you, but he can also appreciate a quiet afternoon with snuggles, curled up on the bed. Cooper is a smart cookie that has all of his manners: he is housetrained, crate trained (although there’s usually no need for him to spend time in one), and knows basic commands such as sit, leave it, lay down, recall, and stay. He is strong and energetic, though, so his leash walking skills could do with a little help from an experienced adopter who could help him hone the skill of graceful walking on a leash.

Cooper is a friendly, loving doggo that previously shared his home with another canine, but she became reactive and assertive which in turn motivated Cooper to do the same, so the situation became stressful for both. Because of that, his rescuers advise that he is adopted as the only pet in the household- no dogs or cats in the family. On the other hand, he has lived with kids before and loved it, so families with children could be a great choice for this playful, smart pooch.

In case you’ve been mesmerized by Copper’s good looks and you think that your family situation would suit his needs, contact Pawfect Match Rescue and Rehabilitation for more information.
