Meet Copper, the newest member of CP&R


CULLMAN – You may have noticed a new, fuzzier than normal face around Cullman City Parks and Recreation (CP&R) lately. Turns out, there’s a new puppy in town. An adopted brown poodle, to be exact, and his name is Copper.  Copper is a male poodle that’s eight weeks old. CP&R’s Executive Director, Nathan Anderson, is his primary caretaker, and will be sharing Copper with the community, as the new pooch promotes various CP&R activities throughout the year.

Waid Harbison, who’s in charge of marketing for the parks department, happily expounded on the new addition to the CP&R family.  “Copper will be used to promote the parks department on social media, and dog obedience classes. Based on other towns that have adopted a dog, hopefully he will boost park attendance in a more relatable way. People will be able to track his growth and activities on our social media.”

Copper spent part of Thursday afternoon at the Cullman Wellness and Aquatic Center (CWAC) posing for pictures. In the near future, when he is 13 weeks old and has received all of his shots, Copper will make stops at all of the city parks, helping to promote them. Specifically, Copper will be on-hand at programs and facilities that CP&R has created for dogs and their owners, such as the dog park portion of Heritage Park and CP&R dog obedience classes.  

Be sure to follow CP&R on Facebook ( and Twitter (, so you can keep up with him!
