Meet Cooper, a buff n white, 7 month old cocker spaniel boy. He is an owner surrender to rescue with the lady saying that he didn't do well with her children, he would snap at them. He also had issues with resource guarding when her two boxers wanted attention from the family and he thought that he deserved it more. His family loved him but he became protective and didn't like to share. Sadly, they decided to give him up. While he has been here at CCR, we think that he was being protective because he just didn't know how to behave properly with the situation. Perhaps with some loving guidance and teaching him how to behave, he can learn to do better with this issue.
He is heartworm negative, neutered, a healthy boy, playful and a needy puppy who is an attention hog. He wants and craves love and attention. If you give him a bit of attention and then ignore him or gently push him away, he will move on to doing something else. He is a smaller male cocker boy who is adult friendly, can be with children 12 and older and is just very needy for your attention and love. He didn't know how to share his space with his family and the two boxers he lived with, but he did play with them when attention was not involved. We have found that he just does not know how to share his human owner when attention and love are given with other dogs close by. Here at CCR, he is doing well with his female cocker companions in the house. There have been no fights or squabbles. he loves to play with them and is just a puppy at heart.This said, he should do well with a very playful, active, dog social dog who can be his pal. In the right home, he will need your guidance to teach him and not get mad at him unnecessarily due to his past. He will do well with a very active, playful companion. He loves to play like a young puppy should, he is just a young needy puppy with a big heart who needs reassurance from his owner. Maybe he could be your sweet baby boy and a best friend to spend quality time with as a loved indoor companion.
Cooper's adoption fee is: $400.
