Meet Cooper! He is a beautiful five 1/2-year-old chocolate male Labrador Retriever who is happy, playful, and snuggly.
Cooper came to WCLRR when his family realized they couldn’t offer him all the playtime and attention he craves. His coat is a little sun-bleached, but it will grow back smooth and soft with regular grooming. Cooper is a handsome and friendly fellow!
Cooper is fostered with a male and female Labrador, and he loves both of them. He is always up for a game of fetch and drops the ball for you. He is also a big fan of squeaky toys. Cooper is a little on the chunky side but is glad to go on walks, so shedding a few pounds will be easy for him.
Cooper enjoys the company of another dog and would do best in a home with a playful dog friend. He also enjoys his walks but does need some reinforcement of proper leash skills. Cooper gets excited when seeing other dogs, but is not aggressive. He has been walking with a Halti in his foster home and has responded to it quite well. Cooper sleeps through the night.
Cooper is housetrained and has not had any accidents in his foster home. He will stand by the back door when he needs to go out, but his new family should establish a regular schedule. Cooper is ready to learn and already knows to sit, down, and shake. He is also crate-trained but does like being in the room with his people at bedtime.
Cooper enjoys being with his people and would not do well being left outside or alone for extended periods. He is a social dog and wants to be part of the family. Cooper is gentle and loving and likes to be right next to his person having his belly rubbed or napping next to his dog buddy.
Cooper has no food aggression but should be monitored to make sure he’s not eating out of the other dog’s food bowl. He does like to be close if you’re eating dinner on the couch, so he needs some gentle reminding that human food is not for him.
Cooper would love a pool in his new home. He loves being able to go in and out and chase the ball or just a quick dip to cool off. We believe he would be ok with kids five-years-old and over. Cooper has not been cat tested. Therefore we would not want to place him in a home with cats.
Cooper is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and microchipped.
