Cooper can be a little shy at first, but warms up very quickly and loves getting pet. He'll happily stand by your side as long as you keep petting him. Cooper enjoys following his nose around the yard. He is also an easy walking companion because he goes at a meandering pace so he can catch even more interesting scents. He doesn't pull on the leash at all. When you sit down, Cooper likes to put his front paws up next to you. Cooper used to live with dogs and cats. However, he still has his Hound genes and thought the family chickens were for hunting rather than observing. So, he could go to a home with other dogs or cats, but no birds. Cooper prefers being with just one or two dogs rather than larger play groups, and also prefers if those other dogs are closer to his size. Be sure to say hello to Cooper on your next visit to the shelter!
