His ideal forever home: Copper loves to be around people! He’d make a wonderful, energetic companion and would thrive in a lively household with an experienced owner who is dedicated to continuing his training.

Other details prospective adopters should know: Copper is part of PAWS Chicago’s Featured 5 program, designed to find homes for animals who have been in the shelter system for a while. Because these wonderful pets need special adopters who can provide them with specific lifestyle and health needs, they are often overlooked. By adopting a Featured 5 animal, pet parents receive special adoption benefits, including one year of free Merrick pet food, free wellness care at PAWS Chicago Medical Center, and free dog training at PAWS Chicago Training Center.
