Don’t let Cooper fool you. At first glance you might see a German Shepherd, but he’s only about 25 pounds. So he’s probably some sort of terrier mix, and who knows what else! What we do know is that on June 12th, one year old Cooper’s owner surrendered him to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Unfortunately, Cooper also tested heartworm positive.
Mary Lou Seymour and the other good folks with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program did not want to leave Cooper cooped up to swelter at the shelter. They networked Cooper to their rescue partners. On June 28th, when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut expressed interest in taking Cooper, the only obstacle remaining was the cost of his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou immediately asked for our help and we agreed. Cooper received his heartworm treatment on July 3rd.
Dog Star Rescue had this to share about Cooper: “His tall straight ears highlight his beautiful facial markings. His tail must have been modified at some point, but it doesn’t impact his temperament. He is confident in a nice way. He gets along with other dogs. His energy is what you would expect for a young adult: medium. He is house trained, crate trained and leash trained.” His foster mom summed it up nicely: “Just a very nice boy!” To see more photos of Cooper, click here.
RADAR paid all $277 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cooper.
UPDATE! Cooper has been adopted!
