Donations Requested! Copper in Sun City, AZ

Adoption Pending!

Update 5-23-17: Copper saw the cardiologist earlier this week and the news was better than we had hoped for. He will require no treatment at this time and need to be rechecked in a year. He also had his dental. He did lose several teeth. He is now a happier, pain free little man. The only thing left for him is a deep ear cleaning. After that he will be ready for his forever home.

Donations for Copper have not covered his vet bills. If you would like to help with some of his expenses, just click on the Donate below. Your donations are tax deductible and will be greatly appreciated.

Original Post: Meet Copper, our newest foster in Arizona. He is also our elder statesman, at 14 years old. Copper came into rescue when his owners moved and weren’t able to take him with them.


Copper is a gentle soul and very loving. He is housebroken. He has been debarked and is hearing impaired.

Copper has some pretty significant dental problems that are being complicated by heart disease. We are currently waiting for his cardiology appointment. At this time the decision will be made as to the best route to address his dental issues.

As you can imagine this can be a costly process. Won’t you please consider making a donation to his health care by using the link below?

Also if you would like to be considered to adopt Copper when the time comes please fill out our online application and note your interest in this Cavalier. After you have done this his foster mom Sue would love to hear from you. She can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots.
