Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff and our visitors safe.

Hello, I'm Copper

About me

I’m a very big lad with an even bigger personality! My favourite carers always use a certain phrase to describe me; "a bull in a China shop" because I'm always barging around like I own the place. Even when I meet people, I jump up to say hello, I just love making new friends! When I’m not rolling around getting as much fuss as possible, I’ll either have a tough toy in my mouth or a big bowl of food. I’m having the best time at Dogs Trust Darlington, and it’s all thanks to people like you!

Why I need sponsoring

Due to the law, I'm not allowed to be rehomed in the UK. I really landed on my paws coming to Dogs Trust though, life here is grrreat!

Dogs you can see

You’re welcome to come and visit me, please make sure you call the Centre first on 01325 333 114. I’m afraid you won’t be able to touch me because I’m a bit nervous around people I don’t know – I’ll still be so happy to see you though!
