Little Cooper, we’re told, jumps up and down so high that he looks like he’s on a pogo stick! If instead he went in circles to catch his tail, we could call him Cooper the super-duper looper! Originally estimated to be 10 years old, this Poodle arrived as a stray at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on November 22nd. No one came looking for Cooper. He was so distraught that he would not eat. Cooper needed to get out of the shelter ASAP.
On November 25th, as an incentive for a rescue to take Cooper, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his vet care costs. On November 26th, Paws for Seniors rescue in Virginia agreed to take Cooper! Unfortunately, an outbreak of kennel cough at the shelter put all the dogs, including Cooper, under quarantine. When the all-clear signal was given, Cooper was off to the vet. He had his initial vetting and neutering done on December 13th. The vet estimated that Cooper was not 10 years old, but only about three!
Cooper arrived at Paws for Seniors on December 14th. Brenda, the co-founder of Paws for Seniors, told us this about Cooper: “He loves people, does great with other dogs and cats, and would be good with kids, too. He loves to play fetch. Cooper is a smart cookie who catches on quickly. He has lots of energy when he needs it, but will calm down to the environment and quickly becomes a wonderful snuggler! He is house and crate trained as well. Cooper is a fun-loving dog who would love a family to play with him!” Click here to see more photos of Cooper.
RADAR paid all $194 for all of Cooper’s initial vetting and neutering costs.
