Coopers Journey began when he was just a few days old. He was rescued from a house with his 13 brothers and sisters. They were black with dirt and fleas. They were immediately placed in foster care where they were cleaned up, all the fleas removed and hand nursed back to health. At there vet appointment when they got fixed and examined they found an umbilical Hernia, Cooper went in for Surgery. At that point he got the name bill. He spent the next few weeks at the rescue until he was able to be transferred to NY to a no kill shelter.

it was in November of 2012, It had been a rough week. My daughter was sick in the hospital. and It was my birthday. I was mentally and physically exhausted. I had stopped in pet smart to return an item and there he was. the cutest puppy. all white with red ears and freckles. and the most beautiful blue eyes. They knew us already as we got our other dog there, so they asked if I wanted to see him. I held him and his sweet little kiss just made my whole week better. I had to take him home.

He was so sweet didn't leave my side. But something wasn't right. I immediately contacted the vet. My thoughts were confirmed. Cooper was deaf. But we were bound to over come it. We taught him sign language and we learned it too.

Then as he got bigger we noticed something was wrong. again. Cooper wouldn't Jump up on the couch or the bed, He ran funny, and feel a lot. Again to the vet. Now Cooper has Hip dyspepsia. and again is going to need surgery. But he has come so far already and is only 9 months old. He rescued me that day and with my help and the wonderful Guidance of his sister Angel (His Ears) he can over come this too.

You can Follow Cooper's Journey as he works toward his Therapy Dog Training. and to over come his disability.
