In spite of his physical limitations due to IVDD, Cooper behaves like the Cavalier that he is. He loves to walk and play (within limits recommended by the vet, of course), he’s inquisitive, affectionate, friendly, alert, smart, and loves kids. He adapted quickly to his new environment and bonded easily with his new caregivers. He’s not a barker or a chewer and sleeps well through the night in an x-pen. Cooper’s fine with other dogs although he showed some dog to dog resource guarding surrounding his toys, but his foster family is working with him to modify this behavior.
