Copper was born next to last, and was the smallest puppy in the litter. We think he was gestationally a
couple of days younger than the other puppies, as he was a little later with eyes opening as well. By the time he left, he
was very close to catching up to the others and now he bigger than some! Red's owners say he is the one who looked most like
Red as a puppy, and he certainly was a very determined and engaging puppy -- very good at retrieving, following, and despite
being the smallest was always right in the middle of things. Copper's new family, the Fuhrs, are looking forward to hunting
with him in the future.

retrieving comes naturally to him. He really plays well with other dogs-very social!
