PostSubject: Cooper 3yr old male lab X HOMED   Sun Aug 19, 2012 6:51 am

Cooper is a really lovely, friendly, happy boy - who was not doing well
in kennels. He needs a family of his own.
Handsome Cooper was found straying on a major road and taken in by the
family who found him. He was never claimed, and stayed with his
rescuers for about 2 months, but due to their work commitments, he was
spending all the day on his own and became very bored, amused himself
by "re-organising" their garden so they asked if he could be rehomed.
Cooper is strong, very lively and active. He will need an owner who is
experienced with dogs, and at home daytime.
He is a super friendly boy, but far too lively to be homed with
young children. He lived happily with teenagers whilst in his initial
rescuers home.
His finders had another, older dog and Cooper got along well with her,
but we feel he would do best as an "only dog" as he really needs to
bond to his human family. He is NOT good with cats or small furries.
While Cooper was with the family who rescued him he went on holiday
with them to the seaside. Cooper loves to swim & he went out canoeing
with them in the canoe, he also swam alongside the canoe for a mile,
but he was attached to a lead while swimming.
He is a super fun boy, and will make a wonderful dog for someone
willing to meet his needs for exercise and company.
He will need further training, he will need work on his recall and
general doggie manners, so he would definitely need to enrol
in training classes.

Cooper would also need a home with good tall fencing. Cooper is in foster with John in Chertsey Surrey.

Cooper will be going into foster with John in Chertsey this Tuesday so please contact him direct. 01932 571268

This is from Gill in Ireland:
Cooper was found in February by a family near to me. They brought him home, hoping to find his owner.
He spent a number of weeks with the people who found him, they had a small dog & older
teenage kids, but both parents worked so Cooper was out in the garden, which wasn't very secure,
& he went AWOL a few times.

They also brought him away for the weekend. When he first saw the sea he was very unsure of it
then he suddenly hopped into their canoe and did his Titanic impression at the bow of the canoe.
He loved the water so much they also brought him canoeing on a river & with a long lead attached he swam
alongside their canoe for 2- 3 miles !! This guy would swim up & down the Thames !!

You keep paddling, I'll look for rocks

Sadly, they knew they couldn't keep him with both working & the kids in school.
They contacted me and Cooper came into kennels I use, last February. No one
came forward to adopt him & Donna ( DBARC) very kindly offered to take him
about 6/7 weeks ago. Cooper is very stressed in kennels now - between here
in the kennels I use & at DBARC

He will need a very active owner(s)
Very secure garden
Lots of activity as he has a high level of energy.

He is a strong fellow and weight about 35kgs.
He is brilliant travelling in a car.
Recall needs work.
HATES cats with a passion.

I think Cooper was never an "indoor" dog, like so many dogs in Ireland
he most likely lived outside, so he will need some basic house manners.

An ideal dog for an owner with large dog experience & a love of outdoor life
activities

Lovely temperment, but between my rescue & DBARC he has been
too long in kennels.

He is way too strong for a family with young kids, only teenagers.

Cooper is neutered/ fully vaccinated ( including against kennel cough) / wormed/ microchipped.
