2862 ~ Copper

ID #: 2862 Age: 8 yrs Gender: male Status: pending

Hi everyone…my name is Copper and I’m an eight-year-old boy.  When I was first rescued by the wonderful people at Golden Rescue, I was pretty depressed.  I was overweight, in bad need of a bath, wouldn’t eat, and I had a limp.  I know…not a pretty picture, is it?  Well, every day things are getting better.  I’ve had my bath of course and my coat shines and I smell sweet…well, as sweet as a Golden can smell.  I am losing weight but I still need to lose more but I have an exercise/diet plan, so I’m all over it.  As for my limp ~ it’s actually getting better.  The doc says I have mild arthritis and put me on this thing called glucosamine and it’s really helping.  My life has improved so much thanks to my amazing foster family and I’m told it’s actually time for me to find my forever family.  Wow!!!  I must have done pretty well in the program to hear that news.  So, let me tell you a bit more about myself.  I love people young and old.  Dogs, on the other hand, …not so much.  I can be aggressive around other dogs although I’m working on that, but for now, I’m better in a family with no other dogs.  I don’t like cats either.  As much as I love my walks, I also love my sleeps and can be very happy as a couch potato.  I am gentle with my treats and you can touch me anywhere.  I’m also fine being left alone if you have to go out without me.  I love car rides and I can still jump into the car no problem.  I love playing and I love my toys.  I need more work on the leash thing.  Well, that’s me in a nutshell.  A nutshell???  I could never fit in a nutshell.  Well, maybe after I lose the weight I’m supposed to…ha-ha!

Copper is currently being fostered in the Ajax, ON area. If you would like more information about Copper please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
