This handsome hound is Cooper! Cooper came to us from another shelter, so we don't know much about his past, however, he has now been with us for a whopping 150 days so we have gotten the time to learn his little but big personality. We think Cooper was kept outdoors most of the time, so his forever family will need to show him lots of patience and support as he adjusts to inside life, we have learned that he really likes to potty right after eating so letting him out before he eats his dinner could help or if you have a backyard he wouldn't mind eating outside on a nice breezy day! Cooper has been nothing but sweet since arriving and soaks up all the pets. He loves curling up for a good nap and always greets visitors with excited tail wags. Because we do not have any history on Cooper, we are requiring he go to a home with no children under 6 years of age and given he is a old man, i'm sure older children would be in his best interest. Recently, Cooper did go home for a short time but was brought back to us because he was getting out of his kennel and being a little destructive in the home when left alone. Even though this is typical hound behavior, there are ways to manage it, so please don't be scared away from this sweet guy. We will be more than happy to provide you with a secure kennel he could not escape from and give you all the best tips to keep him on his best behavior. We do recommend he goes to a home with a big yard, so he can get his energy out, and receive plenty of enrichment while inside. Cooper's adoption fee has been waived so all this senior fella needs is his forever home! If you have any questions about Cooper, please see a kennel technician.
