All in the Family


Basset Hound

I adopted Copper from Guardian Angel Basset Rescue in October of 2000. He was roughly 1 1/2 - 2 years old at the time. After visiting with him and his foster family, I knew I just had to take him home. He was underweight after having been on the road for some time, but has never been hungry since! He loves to eat and stands under me when I am chopping food and cooking. His favorites are tomatoes (he used to eat them right off the plants) and shredded cheese (he can hear the zipper bag open from the other end of the house and he comes running). I don't willingly hand him scraps, but he picks up anything I drop - who needs a vacuum! Copper has always been a snuggler and obviously doesn't realize his size. He believes he is a lap dog - which is a stretch for his 3' long 50+ pound body! But, I never turn him away as he is the best buddy anyone could ask for. He is loyal, albeit a bit overprotective, but once he gets to know you he'll be your friend forever. I swear he's the smartest dog ever; he seems to understand almost every word I say to him, not that he always listens - he does have that typical stubborn basset mentality. He loves doing laundry, mowing the lawn, belly rubs, ear rubs, and most of all biscuits! Copper has a great personality and keeps me laughing constantly.
