This handsome boy Cooper is looking for a new home, somewhere with company and space to run around to stretch his long legs. He was taken into foster care after spending too much time in a small flat with very little human company, where his sadness reflected in a loss of weight and terrible coat condition.
Cooper is a German Shepherd and Labrador mix of around 1.5 years. He is now thriving in his foster home where he has plenty of human and canine contact. He loves nothing better than to lie at your feet hogging the fire or running about with a tennis ball to catch and carry around.
Cooper is a bouncy and full of fun dog, a “wager” with a happy tail, but he also has a calm and friendly nature. Being such a happy dog he doesn’t react to other ‘not so happy’ dogs, he just goes about his business. He loves to play but doesn´t need to be constantly entertained and just likes to know you are there or nearby. He is desperate to learn his place in the family and tries hard to stick to the rules so given some consistency in training, he would become a great family member. He´s food and ball motivated, so training should be easy. Cooper can be left on his own in the house for a short time with no problems, he is not destructive in anyway and doesn’t show any signs of being a ‘chewer’.
Cooper was brought up with cats and children in the home and is great with both. He is just waiting for his special family to come along and love him. Could that be you?
(Cooper will be castrated and tested for leishmaniasis prior to rehoming).
DOG FRIENDLY BEACHES!
There was great news from Christina Kastin this week when she announced that another municipality has granted dogs and their owners the rights to go on certain beaches. This time it is in the Can Picafort area where there will now be a ““pet friendly”, all year doggie beach; Na Patana”. Christina told me that “officially, dogs need to be on the lead until April 2015 (like a testing period) but after that they will include in their regulations that dogs can run freely in that area.”
Well done to Christina for her continued persistence in making this a possibility for dogs in Majorca. You can find out more at Christina’s website which is http://www.guide4dogs.com/
Every week Pet Project tries to help or re-house a homeless animal in Majorca. Pet Project is supported by the Majorca Daily Bulletin, the PR business Phoenix Media Mallorca and several professional and amateur photographers around the island.
