-Additional Information: A very sweet boy, who loves his people and wants to snuggle. When hes not snuggled up next to you Copper loves to be outside and go on adventures. Cooper is a scenthound and will follow his nose wherever it takes him. This means his home will need to be ready to keep him contained in the yard or he will go off on his own adventures. Copper is not suited for people with close neighbors as he looooves to sing (but not everyone likes to listen). Copper came to WHS as a stray and so much of his history is unknown: It is possible he has never lived indoors! He has exhibited some stress behaviors when being left alone in a home environment and would do best with a family that is not going to leave him alone for more than a few hours at a time. He would benefit from crate training, access to a securely fenced yard, and loving patience as he adjusts to becoming a lifelong companion dog.
