Hi my name is Cooper, they like to call me Good Boy too! I am about 3 years old and I am located in Knoxville Tennessee
I am house trained, crate trained, I do well in the car by myself, I walk on a harness very well, I know many commands, (Sit, stay,shake, lay-down, leave it, down, kennel, no-bark) I know more commands than my foster mom knows! I play well with other dogs, and I like kids- they are my size and always smell like food! Sometimes I like to jump on people to say Hi because I love everybody and want to give them kisses, if you tell me to get down I will. I also really, really, really love food or anything that smells like food, so if you leave it where I can get it, or close I will get it! I have a really good sniffer! I like dog parks where I can roam around and smell everything. I also love walking in the woods and getting outside. The more energy I burn the better dog I am. I like sleeping, cuddling, chew bones and toys.I will play tug-a-war if you want to take on a challenge (I always win)! I need someone who will be stern with me and tell me what they want me to do! I am a good boy, I'm really smart and I will listen! I've been in a home with 3 kitties for just 1 week... in the beginning they would hiss and run from me, I used to chase and bark at them...but with the help of my foster family I now try to avoid eye contact, and try to just walk away or keep laying in my spot. They don't run anymore so I don't bark and chase them. If you tell me to leave it, I will!!! If I had it my way, I would love all the attention to myself, but I know I have to share. Just a reminder here and there will keep me in line! I'm looking forward to kisses, snuggles, walks, parks, and car rides with you!

Love Mr. Cooper, your favorite Hound Dog!
