Welcome, Hangin’ with Mr. Koopa!
Eleven month old Koopa was surrendered to a shelter when his family moved. The family never had a bull terrier before and was overwhelmed by his behaviors, which were just typical bull terrier behaviors. They would leave him in the yard, unsupervised, without any sort of mental or physical stimulation. He would then find ways to pull the fence apart and go explore the neighborhood. In spite of being at the shelter, Koopa maintained his happy attitude and just wanted to play, be loved on and have some human attention. While looking for a home for him, a woman named Melissa contacted us about the possibility of Koopa joining her family. It turns out that Melissa and her husband Austin have 3 very playful bull terriers. After talking with her, we felt that Koopa would thrive being in the presence of her very active dogs and 3 human siblings. This past Saturday, Koopa made his way to his foster-to-adopt home and has been settling in, without skipping a beat.
Special thanks to Sherry Bishop, Nathan Mullikin and all the staff at Scott County Animal Care & Control for taking care of Koopa while there, Leslie McKinley King for evaluating Koopa and Miche Branscum and family for driving the first leg of his transport.
