Cooper is a very sweet boy who has natural leadership qualities. He's learning things quickly. Very smart! He is one of a litter of 9 puppies coming to us from MS. They are very smart dogs and will need owners who are interested in training them to be amazing adult dogs. With training, these pups will excel in agility, scent work, disc games, flyball, trick training, search & rescue and other activities where they can keep their minds working. Cooper is working on his crate training and housebreaking skills. He's 4-5 months old and weighs about 20 lbs. We do not provide DNA testing which is the only way to know with certainty which breeds are in their genetic background. Our best guess is that they are Shepherd/Black Mouth Cur mixes. We expect them to reach 55-65 lbs as adults, but we can't guarantee size at maturity. We highly recommend training classes for all of our dogs to get everyone off to a great start. Training recommendations are available. HIGHLIGHTS: - Friendly, Affectionate - Very smart - Working on housebreaking - Crate trained - Enjoy playing with other dogs - Respectful of cats - Playful, Curious & Happy - Up-to-date on vaccines - Have not been neutered yet* * Based on current veterinary recommendations, Cooper has not been neutered due to his young age.
