About Adopted - Cooper

Distance: 1,330 Miles
WE WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERING LOCAL  HOMES ONLY - 1 HOUR OR LESS FROM ARCADIA IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING THE FIRST STEP IS TO FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION - SEE LINK BELOW NAME:  Cooper BREED:  Silky/Yorkie SEX:  Male COLOR:  Black/tan AGE:  6 years as of April 2019 WEIGHT:  9 lbs FOSTERED BY: LOCATED IN: NOTE:  Cooper needs to be in a home with a female owner with no other pets in the home.  He does not do well with men so would not do well in a home with any men that live there or visit frequently. NOTES FROM FOSTER FAMILY: Cooper is a cute little guy but don't let that fool you!  He is fine with the people he knows but needs a person that will not let him be dominant.  He was in a home that was not able to handle his strong personality and was returned to us recently.  He will need a person that is well versed in dealing with a dog that has some dominance and as well as possible fear aggression issues.  Once he knows you are in charge and he needs to behave he does well.  He is a typical terrier in a lot of ways.   He doesn't do well with strangers typically so a home with a lot of people in and out would not be a good fit. He just settled into his foster home and is doing well.  He takes a little time to get to know people and is not a dog that can be around children of any age.   Cooper is not social on walks so he will need a home with a fenced in yard for potty and play time. Cooper does much better with women than men.  He will really need to be in a home with a female owner with no other pets.   Note:  First time dog owners, homes that have not had dogs recently, Renters, homes with children or young children that visit will not be considered for Cooper.
