My family got Copper when she was 3 weeks old at a Pet Shop in Iowa City. The reason we got Copper was because she was the only dog that wasn't barking when we were at the window looking in. Right when we picked her up, she started licking us and snuggling up to everyone. Right then and there we knew that she was the perfect dog for us to get. Copper is a Purebread Shih-Tzu, and right now she is 1 in Human years; or 7 in Dog years.
