Redford Cooper is a handsome fellow--reddish brown with a white chest and splotches of white on his nose and chin. You should see his coat glimmer in the sunlight! He's quite slender, with strong legs, the sweetest soulful eyes, and the most adorable face!
Redford Cooper (mostly called Cooper) is such a sweet boy! He has a calm nature, and is a big love who loves to hang out and play. Initially he is shy, but within a few minutes he warms right up. He is an outdoorsy type of guy who loves to play outside and run full tilt. Cooper is full of energy and needs a lot of exercise, so he would make a great hiking companion and walking buddy. He likes everyone, and loves meeting both adults and children as well as dogs on our walks. He adores car rides!
Cooper would do best in a home with another young dog of a matched energy level to pal around with. He is good and patient with little kids. Cooper enjoys his toys, and knows what he is allowed to chew on and what he should not chew on. He is very food motivated, which makes training an enjoyable experience. Super-smart and motivated to please, he enjoys learning new commands; he knows Sit, Stay, and Lie Down, and is working to learn more.
He thrives on attention and petting, absolutely loves his foster people, and wants to be with them as much as possible. Not a huge fan of being crated, Cooper will need to be placed in a home with people who are home more often than not to give him the love and companionship he desires. If crating is required for short periods of time while left alone, he will do best near his dog sibling to keep him company.
Redford Cooper is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
Redford came from a local shelter.
