Cooper is a chihuahua mix that is 1 years old, weighs about 17 pounds
Cooper is the perfect balance between playful & cuddly. Sometimes all he wants to do is play fetch or keep away (he LOVES soft squeaky toys) and other times all he wants is to lay in your lap. He has the softest coat and loves belly rubs and neck scratches. Cooper prefers women and can be selective with men. He is very affectionate and bonds deeply with his human. In a short amount of time, Cooper will be your shadow and never leave your side! He walks great on a leash and is happy to meet other dogs on walks. He does great with other dogs but is also independent enough to be the only dog in the home. Cooper would love a fenced in yard to run and play in. He doesn't like to be left alone and isn't fond of being crated. It would be best if his new family spent a lot of time at home. We suspect Cooper has had some previous trauma as he displays fearful behavior to some men wearing large boots, slippers or hoodies (he growls and his hair raises when people wearing those items are around him). He is a sweet & lovable boy who only wants love & patience from his human.
