Copper's Story...
Courtesy post - contact Robin at dogrescue@robinlara.com for information on this dog.

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 (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.”

Copper is currently staying in Sacramento. We do request a $175 tax-deductible donation to help cover a portion of each dog's medical and transport expenses. A homecheck will also be required because we do want to be sure that each dog goes to an environment suited to them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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/American Bulldog breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
