Meet Cooper

Cooper is a cute, 19-month old Husky/Norwegian Elkhound mix who weights in at 45 pounds. He is very sweet and gentle with people of all ages and would be great for a family with children or for an active couple or single person. Indoors, he lays down on his side and naps, so while I am working at my desk I don’t have to worry about what he is up to. He likes to cuddle, and if you massage his neck or scratch his belly, he’s in dog heaven. He is a quick learner and can sit, lay down, sit up, come, paw, and look. He was probably treated well in his previous home, where he likely ran around freely in a yard. Cooper really likes being outside. He is strong, so during walks he can pull you around while he tries to sniff the heck out of everything. When he sees a squirrel, hold on tight! He tends to bark loudly at other dogs on leash. He seems to want to play; he is fine when I am walking with my friend and her dog. With the help of good treats, he is gradually improving on the leash, but he will need more training to walk without getting distracted so easily. Nonetheless, Cooper is great to take on hikes and would be a good running partner too.

His adoption fee is $425. He is being fostered in NJ

To adopt this pet, please visit

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call as soon as possible.

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
