Please welcome Mister Copper 15-200 to RAGOM! Copper is a Three year old Irish Setter/Golden Retriever mix born on July 27, 2012. Copper has been with us since September 4, 2015 and has completely melted all hearts that he has met. He is an energetic happy boy that just wants to be outside all the time. He is up to date on shots, has been micro-chipped and was neutered by his previous family. He walks pretty well on a flat collar until he sees wildlife and will pull but he usually does better when you give him a tug or two. Remember, he is just a teenager so he is usually ready to go! He is completely housebroken, zero accidents in the house since he arrived. He will usually pace when he needs to go out. He knows sit, lay down, stop and he is getting better with heel. He takes treats pretty well but if he is really excited he will be a bit grabby. Presently working on that.
Copper does have a few quirks. First, he HATES crates and really doesn't need one as he has free roam of FD's house. Secondly and most importantly, he resource guards his food and high-value items like rawhides and elk antlers in particular. He signals disdain when you are too close by growling and raising his upper lip, no bite history to date just a snarky attitude when he is busy eating or gnawing, also slowly working with him on that and his forever family will need to actively work on this consistently. I put 12+ for kids because he needs older, dog savvy kids who understand that he resource guards altho Copper does love kids of all ages. He is very slowly learning to trade for treats. He LOVES LOVES LOVES car rides! He is everyone and every dogs BFF. He loves his humans and loves to play with dogs of all sizes and shapes. Copper is a velcro dog that wants to be where his humans are all the time. He has a high prey drive so a 6 foot or higher fence is required for this handsome boy.
