Facts about Cooper

  • Color: Black
  • Age: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11732150

Meet Cooper! This charming little Chi has a super cool personality. He's curious, sweet, loves other dogs, and has definitely doesn't care that he's only 17lbs. He's confident little guy but not snarky, and really enjoys being around people. 

Cooper was recently surrendered with his two pup siblings by a family who could not afford their care. It's probably the best thing that has happened to him. He's gone without vet care and flea/tick preventative for some time. He developed flea dermatitis and has lost some hair from scratching and nibbling. This is an easy fix, the fleas are going and with some meds to help his skin inflammation and a better diet, we expect this little guy's coat to be filling in soon. 

Coopers foster mom reports: "He's very outgoing and friendly to everyone. Loves toys and enjoys playing with other dogs, but is very connected to his person when he's inside, likes to stay right by your side. He did not love the crate at first, but he's getting better with it every day. He is very smart, housetrained, and minds like a champ."

You can already see how relieved and happy he is...Look at that smile!

You can also help save dogs like this by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.worthydog.org and fill out an application.

About Worthy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping dogs in distress, especially those living on chains, in pens, or in neglectful and abusive situations. Our mission is to provide a better life for dogs, while working to address the root problems of animal overpopulation and improve animal welfare. We do this through community outreach and by supporting and educating dog owners in underserved communities, by sponsoring spay and neuter programs, and by rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Worthy Dog Rescue believes that public adoption events are unnecessarily stressful for the dogs and the foster families who care for them, and that our structured, personalized adoption process leads to a more consistently positive outcome for both the dog and the adopter.
