Meet Copper

In an effort to save more lives, HT is allowing expedited adoptions for certain animals if applicants bring required paperwork. You can bring your new family member home more quickly by bringing your current pets' vet records, a copy of your lease or landlord letter stating you are permitted to have pets, and photos of your home. Help us help you adopt more quickly!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out our dog adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to Alana2373@yahoo.com

Foster Update (12/5): "Copper is a very sweet-hearted little guy, but he is also a very nervous dog. He isn’t a fan of loud noises and sudden movements. It takes him longer to be comfortable with strangers, and he can be a little timid and shy away when it comes to being approached. Despite this, he does enjoy the company of those he knows and feels comfortable around, and he becomes extremely bonded to his people after time. He adores going on walks in quiet neighborhoods. He has lived with both dogs and cats before, and gotten along well with both. He is working on his confidence in his foster home and learning that life doesn’t have to be so scary. He would do best in a quiet adult only home with a second confident dog to show him the ropes. Copper’s forever family will need to give him the time and patience he needs to open up and trust again.."

The adoption fee for this dog is $375. This fee INCLUDES spay/neuter and microchip. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. Please contact your HT rep to learn about exclusive low-cost spay/neuter options made available only to HT adopters!

Every adopted Homeward Trails animal comes with 30 days of free pet health insurance. We are proud to partner with the following veterinarians who offer a free first exam for your animal, exclusively for HT adopters: Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Palisades Veterinary Clinic, Sunshine Animal Hospital and Clarendon Animal Care and all VCA Animal Hospitals.

Additionally, any VCA hospital will cover illnesses up to $250 at no cost to any Homeward Trails adopter.

We also provide a 30-minute phone consult with a professional dog trainer at Fur-Get Me Not within the first 30 days of adopting - just for HT adopters in the Arlington/Alexandria area. Start your new dog out on the right foot with this valuable, expert advice and guidance FREE!

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting http://www.homewardtrails.org/foster-a-pet/dog-and-cat-foster-program/
