Meet Coops

Coops is still very much a pup at heart who loves to play and he runs in circles if you stop while he thinks a game should still be in action.

He was so very thin (almost skeletal) when he came from the pound but has gained some 6 kilos! He still needs 2 meals a day to keep the weight on him as he runs like the wind and always has his nose stuck into everything that is going on. He needs to go to a home with another active dog otherwise he will become miserable and lonely very quickly.

Coops is super friendly, loves people (especially children) and is great with other dogs. Apparently he is no good with chickens which is why he was surrendered to the pound. I can believe that because he is always on the move and probably would chase them. He may not be good around cats for the same reason.

He is a nice natured playful little man who just loves hugs and a nice soft bed in your room where he feels safe and secure... he doesn't move all night. He is houstrained, walks well on a lead and is just a very happy boy who would love to be with a family with some active kids to play ball with him and take him on long walks.

Coops is not available for interstate adoption and a property inspection is required before the adoption process is completed.
