Copper IV was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing.

In May, 2023, Copper IV was chosen for her extraordinary health and temperament to join the PADS Breeding Program.  She will remain here in the PADS community to have her puppies, some of which may be shared with other assistance dog schools around the world.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Copper IV’s village and receive monthly updates about her — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Copper IV today.
