Biography

Cooper is a 4-year-old Aussiedoodle, purchased from a local breeder.
Cooper is a fun-loving, silly, and active dog. He enjoys walks, basic agility, and playing frisbee.
He has had extensive obedience training and is well-trained, intelligent dog who is motivated by treats and praise.
Our goal is to find a temporary home for Cooper until my daughter is able to take him in the summer.
Our current living situation isn't working for him due to the following reasons:
While Cooper will happily lie about and is trustworthy when left home alone, he can be an anxious dog and often reacts to stimulus that scares him.
He learns to accept household dogs as buddies, but can be reactive to new dogs, especially on walks or when he feels threatened.
Cooper was being trained for reactivity and barking, and unfortunately, a new bark collar shocked him when he was barking. My wife ran over and removed the collar and Cooper growled at her. We think he associates her with that incident because since then, he has been aggressive to her and bitten her on a few occasions.
We have worked with him over the months, but he can't seem to let go of his mistrust and at this point, the situation is untenable.
My daughter will be moving into a house in the summer and would like to have her dog with her. We are trying to locate a temporary foster for Cooper and find a living environment that will make him more comfortable until then.
We are willing to pay for his food and any medical costs.
Thank you
