Cooper is a young pup with a beautiful face and great personality. This gorgeous American Staffordshire Terrier is just over a year old and weighs 58 pounds.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Cooper is a pensive dog, very in tune with his senses. “You might find him gazing off into the distance, but he’s just thinking. This pup is very smart,” the staff said. 

Cooper arrived at the shelter at the end of June. Alert and active, he would be a great companion for outdoorsy activities like walks and hikes. He’s good with other dogs and is very social. Cooper would be a perfect dog for a family with other pets that like to spend their days outside.
