We are helping a family help find a home for their dog Cooper. He is good with big dogs that are submissive, as he is more dominant. If your interested in adopting him you will have to pass a vet reference ( where we call your past or present vet and verify your past or present animal has been utd on shots and on heartworm and flea preventative. Also his adoption requires a fenced in yard. Here is some information the family has provided about him:
1) He is a 4.5 year old neutered 55 pound male German Shepherd/Husky mix (pound puppy). 2) When we brought him home at 3 months of age we had a three year old yellow lab mix female that he thought hung the moon. He definitely was the dominate one of the two but they got along well. She passed away about two years ago. He also gets along well with my sister's pit bull but they do have little scuffles every once in a while because they are both a bit dominate. As he ages he pushes her for dominance less, and is more mellow. He does not do well at all with small dogs.
3) When walking on a leash he like to pull like he is pulling a sled. We have worked with him some on this but the first half mile is still a little tough. We have worked with him to ignore other dogs on walks but we do not typically walk on the same side of the street as other dogs with him.
4) He loves being outside, but also loves cuddling with his pack (he has slept with Cliff and I from the beginning). His favorite past time is playing fetch. He is supper fast and loves to run. We have a wireless fence for him, but he would also do well in a fenced-in yard. He does come when called, though we have never tested that when he is super distracted by something. He is always on a leash outside of our property. 5)He can be food aggressive! This is why we are not re homing him to someone with kids.
6) He is vocal (soft growl/huff) when you ask him to move out of a warm spot on the bed (for example) and he is protective of the property (barks when he hears noises).
7) He is shy around adult male humans, and will take some warming up. He gets along wonderfully with my husband, father, father-in-law, and brother-in-law though.
