When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Copper came into our home when he was 9 months old. He was neutered by the previous owner. Copper is tall and lean. He is loyal and helps maintain order within our home. He likes to lay on the top step of our pool to cool off but does not like to swim. We have a Chihuahua that likes to bark at Copper. Copper does not care for cats. He loves humans. He likes for things/animals to be in their place. If things are not where they often are he tries to put them back where they go. He is very smart. When we take Copper on walks he maintains a nice pace and does well on the leash. He does not like to be introduced to new dogs. While on a walk he will bark at other dogs and come across as aggressive. Although he gets along with our docile female Golden Lab. Copper would benefit from training that we are unable to provide. He has bursts of energy but would not be considered a high energy dog. He happily lays at our feet or on the couch.
