Copper's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.

Copper's Story...
Copper is a young, high-energy dude looking for an active and experienced home. He will be required to go to an adult-only home with no cats or small animals. Any potential canine housemates will need to come in and meet Copper to make sure they can get along. He seems to like other dogs but may be too overwhelming for some. Copper can be a little nervous around strangers, and will need someone who will take the time to make him comfortable. He will need to be better socialized with people, but this shouldn't be done too quickly. Copper will also need to be signed up for positive reward based obedience classes to help his adopters start off with the resources they will need. Copper is a fun dude, and will make a great companion for someone who loves to go on long walks and hikes. Please fill out an adoption application if you would like to meet Copper today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Copper, a Bellingham Australian Kelpie/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie/Shar Pei for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Australian Kelpie/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Australian Kelpie/Shar Pei breeders who help with Australian Kelpie/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
