A4959719 Cooper | Mastiff/Pit Bull Mix
A4959719 Cooper is a cheerful, relaxed 5-year-old fawn-with-white neutered male Mastiff and Pit Bull mix who was abandoned by his owner at a local veterinary office because the owner was not allowed to have dogs where he lives. Weighing just over 80 lbs, Cooper is a mellow and cooperative dog. He adores being with people and just hanging out, doing whatever you're doing. He is highly adaptable, and would be a great side-kick to keep you company at work or around the house. Cooper loves to go for rides in the car, or to have a snooze in the sun. He is relaxed around dogs of all sizes when out and about; at home, we think he would be happiest as a single dog or possibly paired with a well-matched female dog. Cooper walks decently on leash, but some additional obedience training will really help him shine; he is eager-to-please and finds treats very motivating, so additional training with him should be a breeze. Cooper has a spectacularly large head that for sure will attract attention wherever he goes; he loves to rest it on the knee of his human friends and be pet. We can't overstate how loving and gentle this boy is--just lean down for a kiss and let him show you. Cooper experienced a lifetime of neglect, so he has some longer-term health issues related to this, including a kidney condition that can be managed by diet and a daily medication he is happy to take--and there is nothing that stops him from being a fabulous best pal! Cooper will be an awesome addition to any loving household eager to have a mellow, devoted best friend and that will offer him the care and attention he craves.
United Hope for Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion and responsibility. We actively work toward bringing an end to the needless suffering of companion animals through community-based programs here at home and across the border.
The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.
Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
