For over a decade, bachelorettes have had to narrow down the giving of roses to eligible bachelors on the popular The Bachelorette show, but for last season’s Rachel Lindsay, she had a helping paw (or four).

Season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay is an animal lover, and participates in many charity events for furry friends. So when she agreed to be on The Bachelorette, she says she knew that Copper was going to have to be on the show with her.

I feel like the Bachelor is cheating on Copper and me. Copper what do you think…

Copper got to go on some of the dates Rachel took with the eligible bachelors looking to win her heart, and she even brought Copper along on hometown dates. Copper, who is part Pomeranian, German shepherd, Chow Show and American Eskimo was a pretty important part of her eventually choosing fiance Bryan Abasolo.

At a recent charity event for Paw Works in Studio City, California, Lindsay told the audience that she chose to accept Abasolo’s proposal because of Copper. Abasolo said that during his hometown visit, Copper came and sat right at his feet, as if to tell Lindsay he was the one.

Lindsay said that she could tell that Abasolo was different because he didn’t respond to any of the other bachelors like he did to him. She said that she felt Copper was telling her something, and she wasn’t going to ignore it!

Lindsay said that Copper changed her life in so many ways, saying that rescuing the abandoned pup felt like it was always supposed to be. She said that Copper needed her and she needed him and so it only made sense for him to be involved with a decision that impacted the rest of their lives.
