Copper’s story is one of abandonment and search for love. Poor Cooper was most likely thrown out by a busy road. After the first confusion, pain and waiting was replaced by hunger and the need for a safe place to sleep, Cooper must have searched for what he thought was a safe place. He may have lived in a home before or maybe he just lived in some yard or garden whilst his family lived indoors, we cannot be sure. What we do know though is that Cooper must have been shocked by what had suddenly befallen him. In his desperation, driven by his need for food and love this dear boy chose the safety of a garden of someone’s house...

Cooper thought he had found love, kindness and a new safe place to live. Little did he know that the people he had chosen didn’t want him at all, in fact regarded him as a nuisance. Luckily Bojan who runs the BARK ARK shelter was called to take him away. This is what in all likelihood saved Cooper’s life, who would most certainly have suffered a horrible fate.

Submissive and kind in nature, Cooper let Bojan put a lead on and take him to the shelter where he now lives amongst many other dogs. They live in quite basic conditions, but are safe, cared for and fed. Sadly they are unable to enjoy the same amount of playtime, freedom and love that a forever home would offer. The dogs whilst safe, don’t ever feel the sense of true belonging.

When we heard of Cooper, how could we say no to this darling dog? So we have stepped up for him and want to change his future.
He is now reserved for Paws2Freedom and will be coming to Cornwall as soon as all preparations are done and travel is safely possible again. Cooper will be looking for his very own home in the Cornwall/Devon area once we have had the chance to meet this lovely boy and assess him. After getting to know him better we will know more about which type of home would be perfect for this lovely boy.


If you would like to support Cooper with a kind gift please donate for him whatever you can. Every little penny makes a big  difference to our ability to help him and others like him in the UK and abroad. 

Thank you for reading his story. If you are interested in Cooper please keep an eye out for updates.

With love and paws from all of us at P2F & Cooper.
