Meet Super Duper Cooper! I have owned, known, and loved many, many dogs, but Cooper is one of, in fact, he is the sweetest, most loving, well-mannered, considerate, sensitive, and adoring dog I have ever had the pleasure to welcome into my life. Cooper is five years-old, he is fixed, he is up to date with all of his vaccinations, he is healthy, very playful, and very, very affectionate. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, and comes when he is called. He gets along extremely well with other dogs, and cats, as well. He is amiable, willing to please, and easily trained. I met Cooper a year ago, after learning that he needed surgery on his eye lids to turn his eye lashes right side out-Unfortunately, 70 per cent of Shar-pei's are born with defective eye lids, in which the lashes are formed backwards on the eye lid and rub directly onto the retina. I met Cooper's owner two years ago, when she worked at a convenience store in Corvallis-that's when she showed me a picture of Cooper suffering with eyes swollen, watery, and very tightly closed. Later, after Cooper's owner lost her job and her apartment, she and Cooper were forced to live on the streets of Corvallis in her car; that's also when I made a vow to get his eyes fixed, some way, somehow. Cooper was four-years old when I finally was able to afford the surgery to unfurl his eye lashes in the right direction. After his dim and painful reality transformed into sight, he was the most surprised puppy on the planet! He still barks a bit when he comes across a stranger, but is quick to file a new face along with a scent in a way he never could before. Cooper's owner is still homeless and made the very hard decision to trust me to find someone who can give her sweet dog, who misses her to no end, the life he deserves so much, while she struggles to regain her own. So please, open your heart to this sweet boy who has so much love to give to the very lucky, and special person that he may one day call his own! Thank you, Kay Sams
