Character Bio

Cooler is the leader of the Pound Puppies. He is in command of finding families for puppies in need.

Cooler is a beagle/bloodhound mix with white fur. In The Captain and the Cats, he reveals that he is also part Pointer. He always wears his trademark blue jacket with a red shirt collar and red cuffs, which was given to him as a present from Millicent Trueblood. He also wears an orange dog collar. In Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw, he wears a silver leather jacket with two pockets and mint-colored cuffs on his sleeves, pockets, and jacket, and a red collar with a gray tag. His eyelids are yellow. During the "At the Pound" segment, he wears a pair of red sunglasses. In the 1985 TV Special, Cooler has cadet gray fur and gray ears, although he wore his original tradmark blue jacket.

Cooler is smart, laid-back, friendly, witty, and usually optimistic even when things get serious. Cooler also has a good sense of humor. His jokes are backed up by his goofy Eddie Murphy-Styled laugh. He is considered to be a surrogate big brother to the other young puppies. He has a special bond with Holly since How to Found a Pound. In Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw, he is somewhat serious than he was in the TV series and no longer sports his tradmark laugh. Cooler is the romantic interest of Nose Marie. In the TV Special, he had a crush on Violet Vanderfeller. Up until the moment where he saves Violet's life, Cooler calls Violet "Sam". Cooler even risks his life to save his friends from immenent danger.

Since Cooler is part Bloodhound, he can track down the smell of a particular person or animal with his keen sense of smell. Since he has a pure heart, Cooler can communicate with humans and other animals with Puppy Power. In the TV Special, Cooler is also a good basketball player.
