Copper's Info...

Copper's Story...
Hey folks! Now that my handsome face has caught your attention, let me tell you a little about ME....

My name is Copperhead, Copper for short. I'm a hunka-hunka burning love...87 pounds of love that is! I'm around 3 years old, but still a bit of a clown and I enjoy making people laugh. I love me some people! I just can't get enough of having my ears scratched, my nose kissed and my belly rubbed. When it comes to dogs, I am a ladies man and only like to be around a submissive female, otherwise I need to be an only dog. I really love kids too but when I get excited, I can knock them down accidentally because of my size and clumsiness. So, I'd be best with older kids, that weigh more than me. I definitely need a fenced yard because I like to run and do "zoomies" and stretch my big muscular legs.

My foster mom says that I am magnificent and a special person or family will be lucky enough to adopt me someday. I need someone assertive and alpha. Let's face it, I'm a pretty big boy and I do best with structure. I am very loving and will lay in your lap as if I was only 20 lbs. If you think you may be the right person or family for me, then please don't wait and apply for me today. I was waiting in a shelter for over two years before I went into a RARE foster home. I just know it's my turn to find a family and I'm patiently waiting for you.

My adoption fee is $85.00. I am neuterd, UTD on vaccines and microchipped.

Please apply for me online via or use the following link:

I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $175.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Copper, a Franklin American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Franklin, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Franklin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Franklin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Franklin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Franklin paves the way for another one to be saved.
