Meet Cooper

Meet Cooper, a four year old Standard Poodle. At the moment he is with Heart Of America Poodles and Friends k9 Rescue in Moscow, MO.



Cooper is a tri-pod and here is his story:


Cooper will turn 4 in November of this year. He was given up by his owner because they were working a lot and felt he needed a home where he would get more attention.
Cooper is a typical St. Poodle, in that he loves to play, likes people and other dogs,
His left leg was amputated when he was just a year old, because he saw something moving and jumped out of the car window, just as it was being parked. His leg was damaged beyond repair so was removed.
He hasn't been exercised in a while, so his leg isn't as strong as it should be, so he will need a home that will walk him everyday, starting slow, and building up the distance. His former home didn't have any steps or stairs, so he is just now learning how to go up and down a few stairs.
I don't really consider Cooper special needs but he does need a home that is very dog savvy, he needs a companion dog to bond with, and a home with only a few steps.
He can jump up on the bed, but needs to be helped down, to protect his good front leg.
NO CATS & no small dogs. He has never killed a cat but can become obsessed with them, so best that there are no cats in the home.
He is loving, sweet, playful, when excited, he will mouth or "air snap", not an intentional bite, but could hurt a child. Cooper will make a great companion for the right family.

That's it-Wags,
