Cooper came to us as a senior foster dog through Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue. Cooper was found 2 years ago wandering the streets of northern New Jersey during a snowstorm, and saved by the rescue.
Bob and Arlene took him in with the heart condition he had. They gave him a loving home for the last 2 years of his life and he was such a great boy. Bob and Arlene so lovingly adopted Cooper because their other long-haired Dachshund at the time, Lucy, also had the same heart condition. Lucy was also blind, and Bob and Arlene told us how Cooper would lead Lucy around and watch over her. Lucy passed last year and today was Cooper's time to go.
We are deeply saddened by his passing as Cooper became part of our family, too. We know that Cooper is back together with Lucy and they're walking side by side again.
