Cooper is a very submissive dog. He is as sweet as can be and couldn't even hurt a fly. He is a guard dog in his mind and his mind only, as he will bark at a knock on the door and then run away. He's potty trained, but does get anxiety if he is left for too long. I got Cooper from an abusive home 2 years ago. I was a stay at home mom. I have since re entered the workforce and my schedule is too hectic for Cooper to be left alone for too long due to his anxiety.
