"My name is Cooper, I am looking for the perfect family to give me the care and love I need. My favourite thing is to cuddle on the couch or bed with people, especially if they are petting me all over. I am very affectionate towards people and enjoy getting all the attention. It would be ideal if I was the only pet in the house, but I do get along with most small dogs. My daily activities need to include lots of walks and car rides, as I love spending quality time with my family. I don’t look my age(11 years old) but in a couple of years I am looking to retire and start taking it easy.
Currently I am learning tricks and commands as my previous owners prevented me from having much human interaction. For the past 2 years I had been living in a basement with basic care while my owner was trying to handle their personal life (multiple deaths in the family). Only when my owner had to suddenly move my care became a priority. When I arrived at the Vet my entire body was covered with 2-3 inches of matting and desperately needed a groom. After being heavily sedated and all my fur clipped(could finally see that I am a Maltese), I felt much better and my personality began to appear. A technician at the clinic saw the sweet boy I am and knew I deserved to be happy and healthy. After being vaccinated, de-wormed, neutered and having full blood work I am ready to move on from the neglect and into a loving forever home. "
