Dog's Name: Cooper
Estimated Breed: Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: ~3 yrs
Approximate Weight: 30 lbs
Currently Living at: Loving foster home
Adoption Fee: $375
Cooper was a stray in SC and his time was up. K-9 stepped up to save him and brought him to the DC/MD/VA area to find a new loving family that will spoil him for the rest of his life. Cooper has a limp and is heartworm postive as a result of his previous life as a stray, but they don't slow him down! He loves the dog park and cuddling on the couch, and he is well behaved on a leash. He is good with dogs and timid around cats. He is a really happy dog, and pretty low maintenance. K-9 will foot the bill to get him back to health and he'll be good a new in no time! Please let Cooper become part of your family, you will not regret it!!

Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.
