Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Please watch a short video of Penny & Copper below:
Notes from Copper and Penny's adoring foster home:
"Copper is a very playful little guy. He can go and go! He loves having toys thrown for him and wrestling with other dogs. He is
young and likes to nibble hands, so probably better in a home with older children. Very food motivated! Affectionate and ready to
bond. Copper wants to chase cats, but might be ok with a confident kitty.
Penny loves interactive play with dogs, people or toys. She is a great snuggler and always wants to be close to her people. She's
young and also still likes to nibble hands a bit, so better with older kids. Very food motivated. She is a little more bashful with
people than her brother, Copper, but warms up quickly.
Together these two are a fun bundle of love and play. They both like to be on your lap at the same time. They crate really well
together, not making a peep all night. They play with each other constantly, keeping themselves and their person amused. Copper is a
little more confident and models for Penny that new people and experiences are ok. That said, Penny is the more more confident one
with new dogs. They would be great together with other dogs (currently living with three other dogs and doing amazing). I think they
are actually easier to have as a pair because they keep themselves company so well.
We are working on house training and they are pretty good already. I think continued crate training would be optimal, at least until
the housetraining is solid.
This is a really fun bonded pair of dogs that are very loving and trainable."
