Cooper was pulled from animal control in a rural area of TX and brought to DRNA in Maryland to find his new home. Cooper is a very friendly, happy and loving dachshund. He’s a good listener, loves car rides and belly rubs. He will follow you around everywhere you go and wants to be your best friend. He loves people, kids and other dogs. He loves to go for walks - but does not want to stay out in the yard for too long after he goes potty. He is 90% housebroken as long as you are there to take him out. He barks to go outside when needed and then one minute later to come back in. Although he is low energy, he loves playing fetch with his tennis ball and is really good at it - but he can’t walk up a full set of steps due to his short, little legs. He’s very food motivated but you have to watch your fingers when giving him treats! He will sleep in his doggy bed all night long. His favorite position for naps is belly up- flat on his back. He’s very much a lap dog so he would definitely need a home where he can get tons of attention, cuddles and belly rubs daily. He is a long haired doxie but had to be shaved because he was so matted. His long golden locks will grow back in shortly.
Cooper has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease which will require daily medication. The meds cost about $30 month. He had a recent dental with a few extractions. He also has a fatty lump on his back but its nothing to worry about, just normal old man stuff. :)
Cooper's adoption fee is $150 but waived for adopters 60yrs and older. Must be willing to travel to Glen Burnie, MD to meet/adopt Cooper.
