  Cooper ARPH #14206

Cooper is an adorable, very energetic 15 month old neutered red merle pup who needs an active home dedicated to training. No back yard dog, this guy! He loves his person and is good with other dogs, but he still hasn't learned when to back off on the play, so it's best he be an only dog.

Cooper loves toys, playing tug and is an expert tennis ball fetcher. Cooper has separation anxiety and wants to be with his person, although it has gotten a lot better. He crates well at night after some initial panting and he also crates well in the car; he does not like to be separated from his person when at home but settles well. He will require training to keep his mind and body busy, ideally in a home where his owner is around a lot.

Cooper greets most people enthusiastically, but is cautious with some people (with hats, beards).

If you are interested in Cooper, please fill out our adoption application. We require vet, reference and home checks for all our potential adopters.

We rely on the generosity of our supporters to help

the hundreds of Australian Shepherds needing our assistance.
