When 10-year-old Connor Jayne found out his dog Copper was seriously ill, he didn’t hesitate. He immediately gathered up all his toys from his playroom so he could sell them at a garage sale to pay for the Doberman’s treatment.
“He said the dog was more important than any toys,” Connor’s mother Jennifer told Inside Edition.
Copper is more than just a beloved pet to Connor. Connor, who lives in New York, has been diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety, and Copper is his registered service and emotional support dog. Connor and Copper have been inseparable for the past four years.
“He may look like a scary type of dog but he has a heart of gold,” Jennifer explains on a GoFundMe page for Copper.
“We got him when he was just a puppy and he’s been blessing our family ever since.”
