Print an adoption flyer for Cooper!
Cooper is a Mastiff/Great Pyrenees mix that came to Mastiffs to Mutts from Tennessee extremely sick and underweight. Even not feeling well he quickly showed his wonderful personality. The poor guy required a lot of medication and took them all without a fuss. He is now down to just two vitamins twice a day and takes them easily with his food.
The vet thinks that Cooper has IBS so he is on a limited ingredient diet (LID) which is working well for him. Cooper will need to stay on a LID and/or a hydrogenated Rx diet. Due to the bland diet, Cooper will occasionally stop eating. If his digestion and stools are still good the easy fix is to switch him to a different flavor of the same type food. Potential adopters will have to be prepared to deal with food and eating issues when considering adopting Cooper.
Likes: sleeping, chew bones, hanging out with people
Dislikes: Cooper dislikes having other animals around his crate when he has food. He is not aggressive but will watch the animal and will vocalize.
Personality: Cooper is super sweet, laidback, and loving. He will randomly decide he needs a hug or that you need him on your lap.
Temperament: He takes his meds easily with just a small piece of food, is fine with having his nails trimmed and is well-behaved for the Vet.
Energy level: low – medium Cooper spends a lot of his day sleeping but also enjoys going for walks.
Good with: Cooper is good with dogs big and small, cats and children over six years old
Not good with: horses- in case potential adopters have some! He will bark, but has never been given an opportunity to do anything more.
Housetrained: yes- He lets you when he needs to go out.
Crate trained: yes
Challenges: Keeping Cooper interested in eating and on a balanced diet will be an on-going challenge. Cooper was heartworm positive upon arrival and has completed treatment.
Any Medical issues? Cooper has IBS but a limited ingredient diet is working well for him. He does well on a LID or hydronated diet. He is also able to eat cooked chicken and tilapia and appears to enjoy it
Cooper is simply an awesome dog. He deserves a family that will love him and have patience with his food issues. He loves to get attention and adores having his head rubbed. Cooper enjoys his fenced yard and likes finding hiding places to lay but will come trotting to you when called. He likes to dig but is not destructive and can be redirected.
Fostered in DeGraff, OH.
