About Copper

Copper is a vocal dog considering he is a hound mix. He is very friendly and sweet and wants to be everyone's friend. He has a hard time listening when outside due to his nose taking over, so he needs to be kept on a leash at all times when outdoors.

    Copper get so excited when he sees other dogs that he barks and runs at them so sometimes they interpret his over eagerness as aggression, but he submits because he just wants to play
