Walter Anderson once said “Bad things happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life.”
Meet Cooper, the dog that Anderson was talking about (had he been talking about a dog, that is). Coops came to us after 6 years of neglect. Despite whatever hardships he might have faced, or maybe because of them, Cooper has an impressive character and a love of life. He is sweet and affectionate, and appreciative of a safe and loving home.
Cooper was rescued from a local shelter the day he was scheduled to be euthanized. Cooper is great with other dogs. In his foster home, he lives in harmony with 2 other Siberians, and gets along well with a friend’s Golden Retriever and Schnauzer that we occasionally dog-sit. He is gentle and loving with our two-year old granddaughter. He loves having a backyard, a doggie bed, and his tail wags whenever he is fed, gets a treat, or is petted. The look in his eyes tells the story of a wonderful soul that finally has a chance at a good life.
Cooper has one challenge ahead of him, and it’s not a small one. He has two torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs), and cannot walk without pain. He has been living with these injuries for most of his life, and the shape of his body reflects how he has adapted. Despite the persistent pain, he is gentle and greets everyone with a smile and a wag of the tail. He is not just a survivor, he is a thriver.

“The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven not man's.”
