Cooper the Cavoodle

Meet Cooper the Cavoodle, the puppy who has taken Instagram by storm...

Cooper’s puppy dog eyes have granted him a following of over 37, 000 fans and there's no surprise why. Who could resist this little guy?



A Cavoodle is a designer breed of dog, cross between a Miniature Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles. The cross between these two gentle breeds make for the perfect, fun loving puppy.

Cooper’s owner describes him as playful, with a beautiful nature. “He always tries to play bite – his tail is always wagging,” she says.



We're not sure what is cuter, his puppy dog eyes, his floppy ears or his shaggy brown coat.

Cooper the Cavoodle’s Instagram is riddled with photos of the adorable little pup at the beach, taking a bubble bath, showing off his high five skills and celebrating his birthday in a party hat.

Hip Surgery for rescued puppy

2 weeks ago whilst we were in Fiji we rescued an abandoned puppy that we estimate is about 3 months old. She was starving, filthy, covered in ticks and could barely stand or walk. We fed her, washed her, removed all ticks and just gave her love. We called her Pretzel as she was so skinny when we found her that all her bones were sticking out and her hip bones looked like a big twisted pretzel and her long skinny legs looked like Pretzel sticks. Our intention was to find her a home in Fiji but after a week or so she had gained weight, but we noticed that her left hip bone was still protruding and that when she walked we noticed that her left back foot turned out slightly. Also, when she ran she would use both back legs together and hop like a bunny. We took her to an animal shelter in Fiji called Animals Fiji and they examined her and advised that they thought it might be dislocated. They X-rayed her and then sedated her to try and manipulate the bone back into the socket. This was unsuccessful. The vet advised that it appeared that the end of the bone where the ball should be round was malformed either from a trauma/injury when young or by birth. He advised that he does not have the equipment in Fiji to treat her properly and that she would need surgery to correct the bone and to tighten the ligaments to her support her leg. We are exporting her to Australia on the 7th of March and are trying to raise some funds to assist us. We are hoping that you can assistance to find a Vet in Melbourne that could assist with the operation at a reasonable price.
