The RSPCA Newport Animal Centre is appealing to find a special home for a crossbreed dog called Cooper who came into the charity’s care after he was abandoned.

The 18-month-old dog was left behind in a property in August last year before being rescued by the RSPCA.IMG-20210701-WA0008

He has been undergoing rehabilitation at the animal centre in Newport with the charity’s experienced behaviourists and is now ready to find his special home.

Kath Logan, deputy manager at RSPCA Newport, said: “Cooper is a playful and happy boy who thoroughly enjoys playing with other dogs and enjoying lots of fuss from his carers here at the centre. We have worked hard to improve his behaviour as he’s quite a nervous dog so he will need a very special kind of home.

“We think he looks like Dobby the House Elf from Harry Potter so we’re looking for some very special muggles to give him a magical home.”

Cooper will need to be kept to a day-to-day routine so he does not become stressed, he will need a spare room where he can have his own personal space and would benefit from living in a rural area with limited neighbours around so perhaps a detached, or semi-detached property.

He will need an adult-only household and could be rehomed with another friendly dog, preferably a little older than Cooper. He can’t live with cats or other small animals and will need a secure garden. Most of all he will need owners who can give him the love, time and patience he deserves and who are going to be at home for most of the day.

If you think you can give Cooper the loving home he deserves, please contact RSPCA Newport Animal Centre by filling out this application form.
