Cooper Clark was born about January 1, 2013 and weighs about 32 lbs. He came to us from a dog control contact about an hour away as it was realized this poor little guy was living with an elderly woman, in a low cost apartment complex, who was simply keeping him in a crate. She made note that if he wasn't walked he would poop in the house so instead of walking he had to poop and pee in his crate....we were sent photos. I take this to mean (since there was no fence) that if you take him outside a few feet and stand there he doesn't go and you must walk him some. He is really wonderful with the other dogs and he is good with us humans. However, we do feel he may have some PTSD (is that possible?) from living in a crate constantly for how long??? He seems to relish the outdoors and not being tethered to anyone. We have approached him in the yard to bring him in if a storm is coming or to give a pill in cheese to him and he thinks we are going to hurt him and he becomes very upset and will try to nip us...we are confused, but maybe he just needs more time to settle in and adjust to the fact that he won't be treated so cruelly ever again. So for now we do have to say an adult only home would be best going forward. We are so very happy to have him here and are sure that we will find a new and appropriate home for this adorable little guy. One more thing, his eyes seem a bit "off" sometimes and we sure hope he was not also physically abused.
