Copper is a local stray who went unclaimed by his family. We estimate him to be between 2-3 years old.  He is very friendly and social with everyone he has met. He has the typical big hound voice and while he sometimes barks at other dogs, he does not show any aggression towards them. In fact he has been matched with many dogs for playtime in the yards or to go on walks with. Unfortunately, he is definitely not compatible with cats as we found out when he was briefly adopted.  Other than the cat issue, he had been doing wonderfully.  Copper keeps his kennel clean so likely is house trained.  He walks pretty well on a leash too, but can pull strongly when he gets excited.  Copper  would do well with a family that has the time to spend exercising, playing and training him to give him the happy life he deserves!  A fenced yard is preferred as hounds tend to wander when following their noses!  

Copper is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  His adoption fee is $190.00.  (cash or check only, we are unable to accept credit cards)

Copper is sponsored by Will and Cindy Hepfer in memory of Skye and Rosa McDonald and also by Eric and Nicole Hohenstein.   Thank you! 

 If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application which you'll find under each dog's photo.  If you are on Petfinder, you will need to go to our webpage at http://www.caninerescue.org/available-pets/ (just copy and paste that link in your browser).   The application to adopt is  in the very lower left hand corner of each pet's webpage. 

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs.  Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.  

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application.  Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
