Find a Friend: Copper, the Chinese Shar Pei-mix

Wait, what? It’s really October? Time for pumpkin-spiced everything and National Adopt-a-Dog Month. It's apropos for the chestnut pup named Copper, a 2-year old Chinese Shar Pei-mix of pure joy and merriment. Copper holds no malice for the folks who couldn’t afford to keep him. He loves everyone and everything “this much," from kids to dogs and toys. Copper is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, housebroken, and ready for adoption from SecondChanceFriends.org. Meet him in person at the group's annual “BarkAid” celebrity cut-a-thon Oct. 13 at Salon Roxy on Lithia-Pinecrest Road in Valrico. Find event info and Copper’s fabulous face on [email protected]
