Copper is being fostered in Scotia, NY , USA This little dog is Copper. He's about 7-8 years old and weighs about 7 pounds. He has had a pretty rough life up until now. As you can see, when he was in the shelter in Florida, picked up as a stray, he had major issues with his eyes. Rat Terrier Rescue Canada couldn't let him suffer, so he was taken in by one of their NY foster homes. As it turns out, Copper has a condition called "dry eye". In his particular case, neither one of his eyes makes tears, so he requires drops a few times daily to ensure his eyes don't end up like they did when he was found. His new family will have to be diligent in giving the drops, because Copper is very resistant to getting them.Copper should be an only dog that should go to an experienced rat terrier owner. He is very owner possessive with other dogs, but very sweet and loving to his person. He doesn't really get along with the other dogs in his current foster home, but they just seem to ignore him. He is crate trained and housebroken, although he may try to mark the first few days he's in his new home. All he needs is correction with a squirt bottle, and that should end that behavior.Copper can be a challenge, but it's totally worth it, because he is a super affectionate boy when he is your one and only!! Please note , Copper is fostered in New York State , you must be able to cross the border to adopt him Rat Terrier Rescue Canada Adoption Fees
