Ok, so we got Cooper two days ago. Here's what I know about him. 1. First family threw him out a car window in front of the police department. The fall broke his leg. 2. Employee at police department, takes him home, get's his leg fix, has some dental work done. Lives with her & her 3 kids and Yorkie. 3. She has to rehome home him due to divorce, working long hours, finances etc...When I met her, she was a very sweet lady who obviously cared for Cooper & wanted him to find a good family. 4. Cooper comes to live with us. OK: Now, that's about all I know of his background. So here's the problem. Cooper is terrified of the dark. He will not step foot out of the house after dark. Also he HATES it when we wear our shoes in the house. For instance, he'll come and cuddle , but if I run outside for something and then walk through the house with my shoes on, he FREAKS. He barks at my feet, crys and runs away. Also last night, when my husband came in from the garage, the house was dark and Cooper was lying ext to me. Cooper wouldn't let my husband touch him. He acted like my husband was total stranger. When my husband put his hand out, Cooper started growling. I honestly believe if he hadn't pulled back, he would have been bitten. BUT, he doesn't do this with the kids at all. He actually runs to the children when he's scared. Any ideas whats going on here? My husband will soon be switching to nights and I'm afraid Cooper will go nuts on him every time he comes in late?
