OLEAN, N.Y. (WKBW) — The SPCA in Cattaraugus County is reporting a milestone adoption for one of its dogs.

Cooper, who has been a shelter dog for more than eight years, just found his "forever home."

Cooper had been in an "enrichment program," working with volunteers. The SPCA shared video of Cooper getting playtime, treats, and a new environment.

After some enrichment, Cooper was adopted by a family. The video shows the family picking Cooper up-- with some treats-- and putting him in the back seat of a pick-up truck-- and getting a lot of face rubs!

Grab a tissue in case of "happy tears," and watch the video.
