My Story


Yes we still call him Cooper along with a number of other nick names (he’s quite the character)

Yes, Cooper has had GI issues that we are currently working with our vet to determine the best course of treatment.  We have narrowed down the issues and should have it under control in the near future.

Cooper has been good with friends and we we are working on him with other animals (he can be a little rough with the smaller dogs). He gets along great with his sister (Shea who we adopted from NJ Boxer Rescue)

He is eating 5 cans of Royal Canin Low fat GI wet (prescription food) per day due to his GI issues.  He still is slightly underweight due to his GI issues.

Weather permitting we go on three walks per day and he loves running in the yard and playing with his sister, football, soccer ball and tether ball....On the weekends we visit various parks in the area. We try to mix it up for a variety of walks.

I have a friend that is not a dog person at all, but from the first time Cooper met him they’ve had a connection.  My friend has warmed up to Cooper and they even sit together on my couch whenever my friend comes’s really funny to see....Cooper plops down right next to him and puts his head on his lap...



Cooper has arrived! What a gentle giant and is he gorgeous! Beautiful "red" fur and big round eyes. Shelter has him listed as Boxer/Mastiff mix.

He did great on his first walk. Every time he saw people and kids he had to stop to see if they would come over to say hello. Tail was always wagging. The transporter even commented on him that "he was a love and his kind of dog." Very sweet. Cooper just wanted to lean against me when I was cooking/ petting him. He laid down with his head in my lap the whole way home from his transport. He is decompressing from the shelter and the trip so I will update again as soon as I know more.

If you like big boys, he is for you! 85 lbs ( but thin and needs to gain about 10 lbs) 3 years old and good with other dogs. Teenagers only please due to his size and activity level (which was relayed by the shelter.) No cats.
