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 ended 2016 as the #5 Herding Dog and the #1 Male Australian Shepherd - Breed and All Breed. In 2016 they were awarded 110 Best of Breed wins, 94 Group placements - 57 Group 1, 9 Reserve Best in Show and 6 Best in Show awards. Copper is presented beautifully by Laurie Jeff Greer and they are truly a magical team!
