About Copper

 

Arajoel Glory Comet (Copper)

 

 
We are very proud to own such a handsome boy.

We first contacted Arajoel Border Collies on the hunt for our boy. In Thea's opinion to allow a stud dog out on a main register with brilliant confirmation he had to be more than perfect. Copper arrived. 3 years we waited and are in great belief that good things come to those who wait, as he is everything we could have dreamed of owning and more.
Copper has the most amazing nature, we could not have hoped for better for our wonderful family member and the father of our future puppies. 
Copper is a very cruisy boy, happy to lay about, swim or enjoy the company of other dogs/people, but he can become just as excitable as the next border collie, he loves a good play. He is our daughter Alizah's dog however he is everyone's, not completely bonded to one of the family more than the other. He is soft and kind at heart.


 
Along with a mammoth coat Copper is the most beautiful chocolate colour.
