Hi there…I am Copper, a fawn and white male that is looking for a
family to call my own. Copper has come to us from a rough environment
…but he has not looked back. He has been in his foster home for about
three weeks, is completely vetted and neutered, and heartworm
negative. He has been acclimating well in his foster home, and he has
started to show more of his adorable personality every day! He seems
to love everyone he meets, and he gets along well with the other dogs
that he is currently residing with and yes, even a cat! Though we
would not recommend leaving any whippets unsupervised with a cat, but
for the most part he appeared cat-friendly. He is crate-trained and
house-trained, and his foster parents are working on teaching him
manners and simple commands, as he does need basic obedience.
Thankfully, he is food-driven and eager to please! Some of Copper’s
favorite things are (of course) food, chasing the frisbee, cuddling on
the couch, and following his foster mom around the house! He doesn’t
like to be alone, so his ideal forever home will need to be where
someone is home for a good portion of the day. Copper is not a
candidate for a multi-living situation, like an apartment or condo, so
we’re requiring a single-family home for him. Copper would do best in
a fenced-in yard so that he can release his energy. You must be within
driving distance to his foster home in the Chicagoland area. You
must submit an application for further consideration for Copper. His
foster mom will be in touch with you if she feels you are a good match
for Copper.
