Cooper's Story...
Cooper - Cross-Post/Courtesy Post for Love of Labs, Indiana LOLIN

Meet Cooper! He is a petite little guy weighing around 35lbs and is 1 year old. This is Cooper's second time around being a Love of Labs dog. He was originally brought into our rescue as a puppy. His new mom loved him very much, but he was an only dog in her home and that lifestyle just did not work out for him. Cooper is very dependent on other dogs and needs a home with at least one other dog to be content. He is house and crate trained, has been through basic obedience training, and has good manners. Cooper has an unrivaled zest for life; his tail does not wag, rather it spins in complete circles! When he is happy his whole body is taken over by cases of the wiggles! Cooper asked me to share with any potential family that he is an absolute toy fanatic! He loves any type of toy. Stuffed squeaky toys are his favorite though they usually do not last long as he thinks it is fun to unstuff them and hunt the squeaker out. He also really likes Nylabones, tennis balls and anything he can chew on. Cooper should be crated in the same room as another dog to avoid anxiety when his people leave. Though he is not purposefully destructive he has been known to nibble on blankets when alone and the urge was too great to resist.

He is very food motivated and will do nearly anything to get a treat. He quickly learns what is wanted from him and will often do it before being asked. In the mornings he knows that he is expected to get in his crate and will run and sit in there before the treat is even out of the jar.


Cooper loves spending time outside and would be happiest in a home with a fenced yard. He loves to sniff around, sun himself and watch the squirrels in the trees. Cooper does well with other dogs after a careful introduction. He is used to living with cats and does pretty well with them. He has been around kids and does well with them though he is easily spooked. A family with kids who are old enough to understand not to be too rough with him would be best. Cooper is neutered and fully vetted and all set to find his forever home, if you think Cooper would be a good fit for your family please mention him on your adoption application at www.lolin.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cooper, a Indianapolis Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Indianapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Indianapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Indianapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Indianapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Indianapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
