Cooper is a lovely 2.5 year silver salt & pepper miniature schnauzer weighing 7.5 kgs, rescued by Humane Society. He looks cute but is a wolf in sheeps clothing. 

Cooper is fantastic with people, generally has very good manners, loves company & affection, travels well in the car & is crate-trained. Cooper is a barker so will need training in this area.

He is bossy with other dogs but better when away from his territory or place/person when he will play with other dogs. He can't go to a family with cats, he will chase & the cat would come off second-best 

He must go to an experienced owner preferably with terrier type breeds, who will make a commitment to take him to obedience classes upon adoption. 
He is definitely not suited to first-time owners 

His ideal home would be as a solo animal, children over 7 years only with some human daytime company 

Cooper has been vet-checked, newly neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and is currently registered so we will ask for a minimum DONATION of $200 towards these costs. 

If you are interested in adopting him, you will need a securely fenced property to keep him contained which a volunteer from the Society will check prior to him being released to his new home. 

You will also need to meet him at our foster home at Waitoki, about 10 minutes west of Silverdale, as we WILL NOT send dogs anywhere and must meet all prospective new owners. 

Our aim is to adopt each dog to a compatible owner. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any dog adoption application at its discretion. 

Please phone or email for more information.
