Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Cooper Needs Your Help!

Cooper - 8 years old, fostered in New York
Rescue ID#: 141533-P-D-IN

Hello, I'm Cooper. I spent the first 7 years of my life living in a barn with my 3 siblings. My owners got sick and this nice rescue took me in. I didn't know anything other than the barn, my siblings and being way out in the country. I have adjusted to living in foster care for a little over a year now. It was really hard to learn to trust new people, dogs and places. Change is very hard for me. I don't like to go to new places and prefer to be a home body. I am quiet around the house, mostly I take lots of naps (I'm really good at that!). I also enjoy toys, one of my favorite activities is trying to steal them from the other dogs! I like to create a big pile of toys on my dog bed. My most favorite thing in the world is playing in the yard! The yard here is almost 1/2 an acre with nice big and tall privacy fence, it makes me feel safe. I can run and feel FREE when I"m playing in the yard. I enjoy running around, sniffing the smells and looking for squirrels up in the trees. I am housebroken and have excellent house manners. Since I was kenneled for 7 years I prefer not to be kept in a crate or kennel or even confined by a baby gate. I promise to behave in the house though!

If I go to a new home, my new family will need to be very understanding and patient with me. I would need a very quiet home with a large and secure fenced yard. Kids can be unpredictible and scare me sometimes. Understanding older teens are OK sometimes though. I would do best in a home with 1-2 humans. I do enjoy going for walks, but only in quiet and wooded areas, busy streets are way too scary for me. I have spent months working up a relationship with my current vet and an understanding vet in my future would also be a requirement. I might need several visits just to get to know them before I have any medical treatments done.

Cooper is a Liver & White Pointer that is 8 years old. He is fully vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and up to date on Heartworm preventative.
