About Cooper

Adoption Fee: $125
Lhasa Apso
Age: Senior
Sex: Male

Cooper is a 13-year-old, 12 lb. Lhasa Apso who was left at the shelter by his family. He had a heart murmur, a testicular mass, and wasn't neutered. Due to his age and medical needs, Cooper was quickly timestamped and we rushed to bring him into one of our loving foster homes. Cooper was neutered, received a dental, and had his mass removed. The mass was cancerous but removing it solved the problem and there is only a very low risk of it ever returning. A heart ultrasound revealed that Cooper has some leaky valves and high pressures. To keep him in good shape, he takes a heart medication (with cheese!) twice a day. As with a lot of seniors, sometimes a little bit of pee can come out when it's not meant to. In order to help with this, Cooper happily wears a belly band and takes a chewable medicine twice a day. Otherwise, he is fully potty-trained. The cost for the two medications Cooper takes is around $50 a month. Cooper does well with stairs and loves going on walks. He is great on a leash and would not need a fenced-in yard. Cooper is not comfortable around small children, but would do fine with older, calmer ones or in an adult-only household. He isn't a cuddler, but he loves getting head rubs and ear scratches. Cooper affectionately follows his foster mom all over the house and sleeps next to her bed. This sweet boy needs an extra special home with people that will never leave him behind. Do you have room in yours?
