Cooper

8/4/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Mix
Cooper was found by my 14 yo step-daughter while living with her mother in GA. He was wandering around and not being fed, so she began to care for him. When she came to live with us, she was told by her step-dad that Cooper had to go or he would be “put down”
Her dad and I said to bring him and we would help to find him a good home. I have tried for 3 weeks to find an appropriate home to no avail.
He is a small terrier mix. Doing well on potty training and ALWAYS happy! Probably about 5 month

We want her to go to a home where she can continue to be an inside dog, have a fenced in yard and be taken on walks, preferably with someone who has experience.
