ABOUT ME: Hi, my name is Cooper, and I came to the SPCA of Texas almost a year ago. My rescue mates and I were living on an abandoned property in the middle of nowhere, so as you may have guessed, I was completely feral. It has been an extremely long road for me to get to this point, as I used to only lay on my bed, wanting nothing to do with people. Though still fearful, I am now quite the social butterfly, and as you can imagine, have stolen most of the staff's heart.

DREAM HOME REQUIREMENTS: A calm and quiet household with a securely fenced in backyard is needed.

KIDS: They can be a little scary so I will need to be in a home with older kids but would prefer adults only! Kids 13-17 need to come meet me before taking me home.

DOGS: YES!!! I love other dogs and actually require another dog in the home!

PICKUP TYPE: Meet and greet required; crated transport only.

SPECIAL NOTE: Potential adopters get to take me on a test drive through a trial adoption! Meet and greets are by appointment only.
