Good things truly come to those who wait, and adoptions are no exception. We are absolutely delighted to officially announce that after a little more than 9 months in care, our loveable Beagle Mix has found a fabulous home in Vancouver.
Cooper came to LEASH with significant baggage from an abusive past, and had a steep learning curve as he learned how to trust again. To say we – and Cooper! – had our work cut out for us would be an understatement. Thanks largely to our fabulous training partners Pacific Paws Canine Training, The Contented Dog & Cedar Valley K9 Cooper began his intensive rehab. With time, consistency, and patience Cooper began to reveal a tender & loving heart that was so eager to please…and we had hope that our sweet boy would in fact find a forever home that would cherish him. When we met Adam & Laura, we knew that our quirky Beagle-ish pup had found his people – not only does he get to be the centre of their world, but he enjoys regular runs along the seawall, fun playdates with new doggie friends, and toys galore. As part of their commitment to ongoing training, Adam & Laura have started sessions with Dizine Canine – Dog Training & Behaviour to continue helping Cooper become the best he can be. Thank you to everyone that played a role in Coopers happily ever after including Coquitlam Animal Shelter and Alouette Animal Hospital.
Cooper – you have made us so, so proud. You have taught us so much about resiliency and the capacity to heal and love. You represent all that is right in rescue and we are so excited to see you graduate to alumni. Thank you Laura and Adam for giving Cooper his new leash on life.
