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.
2018 is off to a great start! After a few weeks off to spend with his family, Copper was awarded a Best in Show his first weekend back out. As of September 15th, they have been awarded 280 Bests of Breed, 247 Group Placements, 24 Bests in Show and 29 Reserve Bests in Show! Copper is presented beautifully by Laurie Jeff Greer - they are truly a magical team!
