found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
If you love a true nose to the ground hound, I’m your guy! My name is Cooper and I’m a Coonhound Mix. I’m about 2 years old and 40 pounds. I’m tall and all legs with a fabulous tri-colored coat. My freckled legs get more compliments than everyone else’s legs. I was recently rescued from a shelter in Houston, Texas. I had been there for over 6 months and the only reason I had not been adopted is because I’m young and really love to stay active, oh yeah..and I like to talk a little bit too. I think because I had been stuck in a kennel for so long, when people would take me out to play I seem to be a bit much. No doubt I like to play, but now that I have space and time to do that, I’m a great guy and I’m not over the top with excitability. I’ve been cleaned up, given some love and now I’m ready to start my real life with my own family.
I am a super playful, curious and happy-go-lucky hound dog. I love to sniff out treats and other treasures, play in the yard, run around with my friends, go on hikes and especially play tug of war with the rope toys. I’d be an excellent running partner if you give me a chance to practice and learn the route. I will just want to sniff on most new routes until I learn the area. I get along with other dogs, but sometimes if I really like them, I get a little overly excited, so it would be best to introduce me to other pups slowly so they know I just want to play. Once we are friends, everyone loves me and I can play well with anyone for a good long time.
I’ve met a couple of those furry little critters they call cats and I’m terrified of them. They tried to make friends with me and I just wanted to high tail it out of there. People on the other hand are on the same love level as my rope toys…I can’t get enough of them! I’m super affectionate and truly enjoy spending time with all of the people that I’ve met since my big rescue day. I love to lean on my human friends to tell them how much I love them. I also love belly rubs…I went so long without a good long belly rub and now I get them often. I hope my new family will love my hugs and give me belly scratches. I have a spot of my chest that if you scratch just right, my back leg won’t stop kicking.
As I mentioned earlier, I am a Hound Dog and I can get a little bit vocal sometimes. I really like to talk to the squirrels in my yard, so I need a new home where the neighbors won’t mind my squirrel chats. I also really would love to end up in a family that likes to hang out in the yard with me and if you like talking to the wildlife too, that’s a bonus! My new people should be active and like to take me along on their adventures. I was stuck in a shelter for a very long time and now I just want to see the world with my family. I enjoy car rides and will be so appreciative if I get to go anywhere, even if it’s just running errands around town. I do this really cute thing where I think I can walk myself, so I will carry my own leash in my mouth. People tell me that I’m adorable when I do that. I just love to walk and run!
I’m crate trained, but I’d prefer to just be with you everywhere you go. I’m also house trained. I need a little more training with leash walking because sometimes when my nose isn’t tracking something, I pull some. I’m easily correctable, but do need a little help still. Also, I’ve been working on my basic commands, but haven’t mastered them yet because I’ve only been with my new teachers for about 1 month. I love my food and my treats, so training will be a bit easier with that motivation.
I’m neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, Heartworm negative and have a clean bill of health. I’m a young, fun, hound dog with a zest for life and a love of everything that I can sniff out. I’m eager to find my new family that has those same qualities and wants to share many happy days ahead. I’m looking forward to learning a lot and training with my new family. I still live in Houston, Texas and I’m available for local or out of state adoption. My out of state adoption fee is $450 which includes my airline flight, my travel kennel and my comfy bed (the kennel and bed are mine to keep once I arrive too).
