Introducing.....COPPER! Hello RAGOM followers. We have a new, wonderful foster dog in our family. His name is Copper and he is sooooo handsome! He is 5 years old, gorgeous dark red in color, weighing in at 72 lbs. He is affectionate and loves to be around people. He also loves to play with our resident dog Broder. They bow at each other and gently muzzel and chase one another. He quickly became acclimated to our home. He loves chasing his tail which we all get a kick out of, seeing a large dog run circles and then falling to the ground.
Copper is currently unavailable for adoption because he has an ACL tear in his knee that needs surgery which he will get fixed soon. We will need to keep him quiet and peaceful during his recovery in order to heal. We all look forward to going on long walks when all is said and done. Copper walks great with a gentle leader, otherwise is strong and pulls some.
Copper was surrendered to RAGOM after a family member developed allergies. They had him for his full life but unfortunately has to be given to a new home. He is such a pleasure to be around. He has learned to bark from our dog at passerbys out the window but will only bark if Broder is barking. He loves sleeping on the floor next to our bed at night. He has jumped on the bed a few times, which is ok with us, other than the jumping may damage his knee further so we keep him from doing that.
Keep watching Copper's page to follow his surgery and healing and when he will be ready for adoption.
