    Cooper 10's Story . . .

    Original:  "This guy is a lover, not a fighter and a wonderful, spunky little clown."

    Cooper's Pennsylvania owner had adopted him a few months ago.  She lived in the city, and the highly stimulating environment there was making Cooper extremely nervous.  After a lot of soul searching about what was best for Cooper, she made the decision to work with MAESSR to find him a new home.
    Cooper is crate trained and housetrained.  He will try to counter-surf, but is really too short.  He likes to sleep in the big bed with his foster parents, but will also sleep in his crate.  When sleeping in the big bed, he cuddles just as tight as he can get to his foster mom or dad.
    This handsome black and white guy loves to play with his ball and his duck!  He has started understanding the hang of returning the ball when it is thrown and he is told to bring it back.  He also likes to play with puzzle toys.  He is such a smart little boy.  He knows “sit,” “down,” “off,” and “give.”   He rides well in the car and seems to enjoy the experience.
    Cooper does fine with most of the multiple dogs in his foster home. Occasionally he will decide he is the biggest and the “baddest” and quickly learns that he is not.  He truly is a sweet little boy with thousands of freckles and a beautiful full tail.

    Cooper was a little anxious at the vet and for the groomer, but he handled all of the attention very well. Since he does have some anxiety, this pup was started on an inexpensive supplement that has helped him calm down and be okay with things going on around him.  His adoptive home will be required to keep him on this supplement for a minimum of six month after adoption.

    Cooper would do best in a home in the suburbs or rural setting.  Life in the city is just too overwhelming for him.  He would love to be an only dog, but can be fine with another dog...preferably a female.  This guy is a lover, not a fighter and a wonderful, spunky little clown.   Might he fit into your home?  Remember “Springer” is just a state of mind!
