Copper is a special needs dogs in search of a home with other dogs. He is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs 40 lbs. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Here's what his current owner says:
In April of 2015, I adopted a dog from a local animal rescue organization. He was badly neglected and had never lived inside when he came to me. I have taught him to use the stairs and not be afraid of ceiling fans along with may other daily activities. He has come so far and I am now realizing he is not progressing any more and will always have his special needs. I have tried herbal remedies, prescription medication, training (for confidence), doggie day care, and even adopted a second dog. He is always in the second bed room hiding and never has fun at home with just myself and his sister.. BUT he thrives in households with multiple dogs. When I visit home and everyone brings their dogs together, he is 100% different than when he is at home alone with me. He is happy and plays and runs around with them, with so much less time in another room alone. Unfortunately I cannot support the multiple dogs needed to make him happy. That is why I am reaching out to you. I’d like to find him a home with someone who has had special needs dogs and that has many dogs already. This person would definitely need to have experience with neglected dogs, so there is no surprise with his quirky behavior.
Adoption fee $200
Transport, if needed : $120.00 We consider the transport to be of great importance and, as such, take particular care of the dogs during the trip from Alabama. We make every effort to arrive with healthy and minimally stressed dogs.
