Copper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Copper
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Home: Pempbroke Pines (Ft. Lauderdale), Florida, USA
   Copper is a hyperactive, full-of-life puppy that might just never grow up. He comes from a litter of three puppies but he is the only one still alive. As a true Yorkie, Copper has a mind of his own and has not been easy to train. Training may be a lifetime adventure. Our family lives with all his faults (barking, chewing, etc.) because he is so lovable and playful. He craves attention and spends all his waking hours looking for it from anyone, including the whole neighborhood when he goes for his daily walks. He loves children and will also go up to any other dog, no matter the size, until he realizes he might be in over his head. As his October 11th picture shows, he gets to go to a restaurant one Saturday every month and is always on his best behavior for up to three hours.
