VENETA, Ore. -- You can't keep a good dog down.

Just one week after major surgery Copper the dog was back on his feet Wednesday night, playing with his Veneta family.

Sporting a plastic cone around his neck -- and minus one front leg -- Copper romped in the front yard, seemingly unaware of his injuries.

Copper was hit by a car and left to die on July 2. But thanks to over $8,000 in donations from KEZI 9 News viewers he was able to get the life-saving medical help he needed.
