Kopper loves to play. Although he is 7 years of age, he acts like he is a 7 month puppy. At 7 years of age, he is a happy playful boy. He loves to play must make sure you have two balls with you when you play ball with him. He likes for you to throw the first ball and let him chase it and bring it back to you, when you tell him "Drop It", he will drop the first ball because he knows you are going to throw the second one. When asked, he will also sit for you so you can lightly toss the ball so he can catch it in his mouth. He will be so proud he caught it he will run around the yard with it and bring it back when you ask him to do so. He enjoys holding a Ruff Dawg Crunch Stick Dog Toy between his paws and chew on it while lounging on his comfy pillow.

Just wait until you see how his eyes light up when you call his name and he comes immediately running to you with a ton of excitement to give and receive love and attention. Kopper must have a canine companion to live with who enjoys romping and running. Kopper and his 3 year canine resident sister are constantly running, playing, and having a fun together. He truly enjoys going on long walks and gets so excited when you get the leash out, he goes immediately to the front door in anticipation of his long walk.

Kopper is a very kind and gentle soul who enjoys giving love and being loved. He sure brings a ton of joy and sunshine to everyone he meets with his happy personality. He is very human focused. He absolutely loves being near his human family and gets along great with his foster family's resident canine pack. Not a couch potato but does enjoy hanging out on the patio with you, watching TV, and having his head, neck, belly, and back massaged and rubbed. Kopper loves to be clean and will jump right into the bath tub and sit down ready to be bathed. Kopper is a much laid back boy who gets along with other dogs. He is not trustworthy around cats though so we recommend a home without felines.

Koppers favorite thing in the world is to love and be loved. Kopper is very responsive to your voice commands because he just wants to please you and make you happy. His current medication maintenance is minimal at 3/4 tsp of digestive enzymes/per 2 cups of food for absorption of nutrients each day and 1 previcox pill/day. If you have been looking to add an integral family member and great companion, Kopper is one of the kindest, softest, caring, loving companions who will ever cross your path. He will fill your life with joy and sunshine each and every day. With Kopper you get the best of both worlds, you get the wisdom of an older dog, but with the playfullness of a younger dog. Kopper loves to play!



NOTE: In our experience many German Shepherd Dogs are very good with kids. In our bios, we may provide information on our experience with a particular dog and children. However AGSDR discourages ALL unsupervised animal/child interaction. Children should be supervised at all times when they interact with ANY animal, whether it is a horse, dog, cat, bunny, lizard, or any other species. Even loving household pets can have a grumpy day, or otherwise get tired of a child's attention, so proper supervision is essential for the well being of any child and any pet.

The entire biography of this dog is based solely upon our volunteers' experiences with the dog. The dog's age and weight are estimates, and statements about the health, temperament, training, and ability to get along with other animals, children, cats and other dogs, are estimated solely based on our volunteer's experiences with this dog. Your experiences with this dog may be quite different than those of our volunteers.
