My story

Apply to Adopt Me!



Copper is a special kind of dog. He is sweet, he is sensitive, and he is an absolute goon. He can be so nervous to start. When he decides you are safe he is so loving and endearing.
Copper, aka Bidoof, Big Oof, Gooney, Ears, is around 3-4 years old and weighs 67 lbs. He loves to start his morning with rubs. He will roll around, throw his long lanky legs in the air, push his face into you, and stretch those big long legs out. He will grab a toy, show the other dogs in the house how great the toy is, and then add that toy to the cache of toys on his bed.
This boy can run and do some serious zooms! He looks like an absolute dork, his legs go in every direction, but there is a hidden grace to it. He is a big strong boy and is not agile, so I recommend his fellow dogs and people be stable on their feet! He loves to lean into your legs while you rub his side and chest. He will stick is big old nose in your face and on occasion give little soft kisses.
His awesome personality just can’t be shown in pictures. He is so funny, sweet and sensitive. He is an awkward goof who has no idea how big he is. There is zero aggression in Copper, even when he is terrified he just wants to get away from whatever is scaring him. He has such a soft heart. Copper is pretty good on a leash. The only exception is the first minute when he is so excited to go he will pull hard. Once the overexcited energy is out he just needs a few tugs every once in a while to keep him from pulling.
I really think Copper shines brightest when there are other dogs in the home to show him how to behave and play. He adores all dogs. He desperately wants to play with my cat and will leave her alone after a few harsh swats or redirection to a toy but I wouldn't place him with a cat that despises dogs. He just wants to play so badly.
Copper rarely barks, normally only when you first come home or if he is really scared during a thunderstorm. Copper does require a strong crate, his is not optional for him.  He gets so scared of thunderstorms and rain he will hurt himself trying to get away from the noise. He needs a safe place to go when he is scared. His foster mom once discovered him in their bathroom sink because she didn't hear the thunder before he did.
Copper needs a quiet home with people who believe in force free training. Copper does not do well with yelling of any kind, if you are too commanding he will shut down. He does so well when you are patient and give him treats and let him explore his boundaries in his own time. His foster mom says it has been a joy to see his trust grow, and along with his trust his willingness to listen on command.
Copper is beautiful, strong, inquisitive, deeply loving, and an absolute goon. Also just look at that face! We are requiring a minimum 6-ft. secure fence for him. If you live in the Central Florida (Orlando) area and believe you can give Copper the wonderful life and home he deserves, please complete our adoption application and tell us more about you.
