Copper is one of those dogs that loves the show ring. Another breeder watched him and said "He's Hollywood". She was right, he loves to show and he continues to love the camera and the crowd!
Copper started off his show career taking 2 majors and a Group 4 at the Rocky Mountain Cluster AKC shows. He was Winners Dog / Best of Winners at the 2013 ASCA Nationals with over 150 entries. He was finished from the Bred-by class and breeder/owner handled to both championships and Select Dog at Eukanuba.
Copper retired in September 2018 with over 300 Bests of Breed, 265 Group Placements, 24 Bests in Show and 30 Reserve Bests in Show! Copper was presented beautifully by Laurie Jeff Greer - a truly a magical team!
