This week we’re featuring Copper and Marley Jane!
Almost 10 years ago, Second Chance rescued a stray shepherd-retriever mix puppy and named him Copper, after the color of his coat. Now, he’s got some silver hair, too–and he’s back in our program as a senior doggo…and part of a bonded pair.
Back in 2010, Copper was saved by Second Chance, fostered by doggy daycare Dogtopia, and then adopted into a family that had another dog, a black lab mix named Marley Jane.
The two of them have been best buds for almost a decade now–but together, they are homeless. Their mom passed away and their dad brought them to the local county shelter when he moved into assisted living.
A shelter volunteer and former Dogtopia employee recognized Copper as a Second Chance dog, so they picked up the pair and they’re in foster together, looking to be adopted together, too.
While these babies are definitely a mature couple of dogs (potty-trained and all, of course), they still like to play and wrestle with each other.
Marley likes to sneak your food, while Copper is eager to please you and is happy to earn his treats by sitting and shaking hands.
Both get along swimmingly with the toddlers in their foster home, but their foster mama does recommend against being adopted by a family with a pet turtle.
If you’re turtle-free and interested in giving two senior doggies a permanent retirement home, please learn more about Copper and Marley Jane at SecondChanceNC.org!
