Original: Copper was rescued from a local source by his family when he was under a year old. He fit right in with their male lab and a couple of chihuahuas. He also loved the six kids in the house. They ranged from 2 years old up to 19. As Copper matured he and the male lab started to have some conflict. This can happen with intact males. Cooper remained faithful to the chihuahuas. He even lived with a cat! They even had a pig as a pet for awhile and he and Copper were buds. Coppers family realized that perhaps he would be happier in a home without the conflict. Copper is housebroken and cratetrained. He would love a home where he gets walked more than has has been. Copper is a young guy and would really love an Boxer owner who can show him how to be the best Boxer he can be.
Dogs react differently in different environments. The above was from his original home. Copper went home and may have been given too much freedome/ control from the start. Cooper was very scared when surrendered and then had to have a more complicated neuter procedure. Rough start. He started making decisions himself and being a dog they were not always good decisions. He nipped at a teenager when she tried to correct him. He was reactive to their cat. And he became very dog aggressive.
Copper deserves another chance. He would do best in a home with calm assertive leadership, no kids and no other dogs. He has been with a trainer for a number of weeks and he sees great potential for Copper in the right home. He need to feel secure, grow some roots and settle in with a boxer experienced leader.
