Copper Needs a Home

Phoebe and I had the privilege of meeting Copper this weekend in Sacramento. His family lives across the street from Robin, Miko's foster mom. Due to some tragic circumstances, they are being foreclosed upon and are looking for a new home for Copper. We are in search of a foster or adoptive home for him.

Copper epitomizes the exuberance, unabashed joy, and happy-go-luckiness that is synonymous with pitbulls.

Like 'em goofy, happy-go-lucky, good-natured and a little drooly? Then Copper might be just the dog for you. Copper is a playful, sunny-tempered boy who loves strangers, kids, and dogs. He lives with 3 kids and 2 other (larger) dogs. He's a bundle of joy, eager to please, and just loves life.

Copper is an energetic dog but not hyper. He loves to play and is great with other dogs. However, he enjoys his cuddles and couch potato time just as much. Nothing makes him happier than being petted and snuggled in your arms. Copper is a very powerful dog so it's important he continue to be instilled with good manners and discipline so that he remains an ambassador of the canine family.

Copper sits, lays down, and stays (needs some work on the stay, though). He is also housetrained. He loves to go on walks, but pulls a bit at first. He also loves to ride in the car. He always has a blast at the dog park (well, he's the kind of dog that has a blast pretty much wherever he is). He's a little too interested in cats so we think would do best in a non-cat home.

Copper is about 3 years old and is housetrained, neutered, microchipped, and current on shots. His home is being foreclosed and his family is unable to move with all 3 of the dogs. They are keeping the oldest and are trying to find homes for the other 2, including Copper.

A quote from Copper’s family: “One of my favorite things is the “Piggy” noises he makes when he’s sniffing your face. We call him “Piggy Pigington” when he does it and sometimes if you say “Piggy Piggy” he’ll start making the sounds for you!! He will be greatly missed.”
