Cooper was returned to rescue. His adoptive family loved him but they have three cats and it turns out that Cooper cannot live with cats. For the safety of Cooper and the cats, they decided the best thing to do would be to find him a forever home without cats. That being said, let me tell you a little about him. He is a super sweet and loving guy and we just adore him. When he first arrived, he was scared. We couldn't get him to walk on his leash and had a hard time getting him out of the car. We put the gates up in the kitchen and let him hang out there and gave him time to get used to his new surroundings. As scared as he was, he never showed any aggression. Within a few days he was running and playing with our gang and coming to us for attention. He gets along great with our three dogs. He is playful and loves toys. He knows sit, shake and down and will come when you call his name. He is a great passenger to have in the car, he sits and looks out the window or lays down. Cooper has a great appetite and loves food. He takes treats very gently. He will need to be watched because if something yummy is on the counter, he thinks it is his. We are working to break him of his counter surfing.
One night we woke up to a banging noise and got up to investigate. Cooper opened the bottom cabinet and took out the canned items and was rolling them across the floor. I guess he wasn't tired and wanted to play! He is happy going for a walk or relaxing in front of the TV. I can pet him while he is eating and put my hand near his food and he could care less. We don't have young children but I think Cooper may be too big for them and might accidentally knock them over.
Cooper's forever family will need to give him time to settle in and learn what is expected of him. Cooper is in NJ waiting for you!
