Cooper Churchill

Sex: Neutered Male

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Mixed (medium Coat)

Age: 4 years, 11 months


Status: Adoptable

Stray dog Cooper was found by a family a few years ago. He was almost dead, weighing only twenty-something pounds with heartworms. He had an old collar on that looked like he had been tied to something. We think he was abandoned in a backyard and got out. Cooper was

nursed back to health over the next few months. He did not make a sound for months! When he was healthy enough, the family did a GoFundMe page to pay the $1000 for his heartworm treatment, which he survived. Then when he was healthier he was neutered and was sent him to

The Barking Zone in Birmingham

for obedience classes. Once he started to feel better the puppy started to come out, and he likes to play and wrestle. Cooper did well in the home with other dogs, is housetrained and was protective of his family. Cooper is now living at Tails and looking for a family who will love him as much as he loves them!

Despite his tough past, he is a loving, loyal, grateful dog who is deserving of a permanent home.

**Please ask for this pet's adoption fee.  It is a tax-deductible donation to help pay vet bills.

ALL PETS FULLY VETTED BEFORE ADOPTION: including exam, MICROCHIP, spay or neuter, Heartworm test, fecal, deworm, DA2PPv, Rabies (if old enough), as well as any other medications or surgeries the pet needs.

Some highly adoptable dogs who will find a forever home quickly, have a higher adoption fee. These dogs leave a financial legacy for the other animals in our care who may need extensive medical care or more time to find a loving home.

Return Policy: Foster homes save many lives, and as soon as one gets adopted, they often get another one.  So spaces fill up fast!  If you wish to return your adopted dog, please email and be prepared to bring him/her to adoption events until a forever home is found.  In some cases their previous foster can take them back. They cannot be given away, sold, or turned in to another agency. You are responsible for keeping your dog and bringing him/her to adoption events until we find a suitable home to adopt them.
