Arajoel Chips A Thousand (Chip)


When we decided to welcome another male to our home team we thought that we would be waiting forever. Like we had for our Copper. We had 10 main boxes that we wished to tick. He needed to come from health tested parentage, clear of mutations with good conformation and temperament, we wanted him to be a colour that was recognised on the breed standard and if red he had to have a great black pigment. We wanted a good head and non pricked ears. We also wanted him to carry all colours. We were offered a couple of litters before Chip and had nearly said yes to a chocolate male until Thea from Arajoel mentioned this joining!! Chips mother is amazing, I have always liked her, with her thicker bone, wider stance and great head amongst many other attributes, she has always caught my attention. I knew there was a slim chance of getting a pup with all my expectation because the litter could produce blue, choc, lilac and red with the pigments of all these colours but i had to wait and hope. 

There were a few issues with this litter and a couple of puppies didn't make it, so then that narrowed the count to 2. 2 little red pups. We then thought OMG what are the chance that 1 of these pups will have blk pigment, have great bone structure and tick every box to become a stud male. We leant towards the darker of the 2 reds, as he looked to have thicker bone and a better head from the start, but no idea on pigment so waiting, waiting, waiting... It was not too long before we could see blk pigment come through and i was doing a happy dance as seriously the chances were very slim! So next bridge is he required a colour test with USA to see if he picked up chocolate. We awaited the test and watched him grow, seeming more and more happy with his growth every day. The test came back confirmed that Chip carried it all and we were over the moon to allow him to come to our home. 


 


Chip has grown into such a handsome man, he has been assessed by our friends and show mentors and he may be shown in his future. They believe he should do well, even though he would be competing in a black and white world here. He is a well put together young man. He has so much love to give.


Chippy is the most soft hearted, sweet man you could ask for. He fit in straight away with our large fury family and became our son Dustin's main man. He is so devoted and faithful to Dusty it is amazing. They have one of those life time soul bonds that everyone in their own life time should have the chance to experience.
 

Chip is so smart, he can do most tricks and Dusty has been enjoying obedience classes with Chip also.  We look forward to watching Chip mature into the beautiful man he is sure to be.
