Adopt Super Cooper on Petfinder (2024)

There are few things that make dog lovers happier than meeting a dog who is playful, loves the water and a good stick, plus is respectful of cats! Cooper here is one of those and not to sound cheesybut wait! Theres more! Take a look at him in action then come back to read more!

This cute boy is not quite an adult but not quite a puppy, I would call him a teenager if that term didnt make most people roll their eyes. He is a middle-ager with a widows peak. Weighing in at 39 lbs he is a lot of fun in a small package, really the perfect get-up and go guy! Estimated to be 8 months old he is eager to learn and has a great base of commands and skills. He has been fortunate to be waiting for his adoption day in a foster home so he has had a jump-start on the skills it takes to be a good house dog. All reports from his foster family have been overwhelmingly positive. They shared that he has been just an all around great house guest! House trained, loves a car-ride, knows his toys are for chewing and not any of the people things. He currently lives with a shepherd mix and has a nice neighbor dog that joins in back-yard play sessions so he has a great sense of dog manners and how to play nicely.

When we spent time with Cooper away from his foster home we saw the same good-boy we had been told about, a friendly boy with a cute face and great manners. I was impressed with his leash skills, he understands that walking close is key and pulling isnt welcome. During that time we introduced Cooper to a handful of dogs he had never met and he was calm for introductions and perfectly playful when his new friends invited him to play a game of chase. Watching him jump into the pool to cool off was what sealed his hold on my heart. He was so content and self-assured it was a joy to watch!

Cooper is also friendly without being pushy, he wants to say hello but will wait patiently for you to meet his eyes and invite him over. No jumping here! Not one time, even when treats were being offered (which he loves) he did not jump or get overly excited. He is such a well-behaved boy it is easy to forget that he is a middle-ager, freshly out of his puppy days.

Cooper is what we lovingly call a daycare dog because he is easy-going and his playful approach with other dogs means he can go to doggy-daycare for a fun day out and then come home for a big ol nap! He doesnt need that level of play everyday though, he is mellow inside and happy to hang out or play with a toy on his own. An ideal home for Cooper would include occasional adventures, hike or day-trips to the lake or beach, and walks around the neighborhood. A yard is always fun but with chances to play and walk, it isnt a necessity. Coopers size makes him a great candidate for apartment/condo life. A playful friend would be awesome and a pool of any size, even a kiddie pool to splash around in, would be a bonus!

If you have any questions about Cooper or would like us to test him for a specific setting or detail, please be in touch! We can make most anything happen to ensure he is the correct fit for you and your life!

Why adopt from Three Little Pitties?

The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is the highest in the nation. Statistics show that there are over 1 million homeless animals in this region alone. Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no other option but to euthanize animals for space. This dog youve found online is lucky to be in our program, and even luckier to have you notice it!

Three Little Pitties wants to set you and your new pet up for success! We know our dogs and we work hard to prepare them socially for adoption. We are a network of dedicated people who are heavily invested in seeing our animals thrive. From the moment they are accepted into our program, our Intake, Behavior & Medical teams prepare them for adoption by properly vetting, behaviorally assessing, and providing customized plans depending on the dogs needs. We seek to adopt to families who understand that these are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be!

It doesnt stop there! Our adopters also receive these special perks:

30 day trial of pet insurance with Trupanion (must register within 24 hours of first vet appt.)
