Facts about Cooper

  • Breed: Pekingese
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: D12Y639
Cooper is a 5-year-old Pekingese with a shaggy coat. He was brought to the shelter due to his human companion's illness. Cooper's person said he's shy with strangers but loves attention. Cooper likes to be around other animals, including cats, and loves belly rubs and walks. He can sometimes be a little "snappy," so he shouldn't be in a home with children. He knows "sit," "stay," "down," and "fetch" and will learn tricks for treats. Cooper's human companion said he's a lap dog and would cuddle next to her on the sofa. She said Cooper loves to go outside even in cold weather, and she recommends that his adopters keep an eye on him, as he likes to leave the yard to embark on adventures. We can provide you with more information from Cooper's former home. He awaits your visit in our Puppy Room. ~ All of our dogs and puppies go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (if at least 6 months old), and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations.
