Cooper in Patchogue, NY


My name is Cooper. I just turned three in March. I went to the doctor’s office and got a clean bill of health. I have no heart issues, my knees and hips are all good. However, my doctor said 41 pounds is way too heavy, and not good for me. I have to lose some weight. She mentioned something called a “diet.” I am not too happy about it, but I know I have to get healthy so I can live a long life.

My foster family is keeping me active. I so enjoy the kids playing with me outside. I am totally house trained and have not had any accidents. I am good with other dogs as long as they do not try and touch my toys, as I really like to keep them to myself.

My ideal home would be someone home most of the time. An active family that will be committed to helping me lose weight would be best for me. I need my forever home. My foster mom says I am the most perfect dog. I am kind and gentle, and I cannot wait to find my people.

Young people love to be with me, and they say I am fun to play with. I would never be aggressive or snip at anyone. I am enjoying all the attention and affection. Belly rubs on the couch are also a plus.

However, this “diet” word is frightening. I am on the way to slimming down. I will need a healthy diet and some exercise. Did I mention that I love being outside and playing? So a fenced yard with some activity is a dream come true for me.

I am so excited to start this next chapter of my life! If you think we would be a good fit please fill out an application, if you have not done so already, and email Michelle Farnum at to let her know of your interest.
