Hi. This is Copper. We adopted him in December 2016. We love him to pieces but have found that he needs a fenced in yard which we do not have out in the country. He has a lot of energy and needs to be able to run around with out being on a tie out cable. An underground fence does not work for him. The Bloodhound in him sometimes takes him on adventures down the road and we worry about him getting hit by a car or getting lost if he goes to far. So we have decided that he needs the boundaries of a fenced in yard.He loves to cuddle and gives kisses.
