Copper is our youngest Alaskan Klee Kai. He’s a bundle of energy and love with a splash of mischief for good measure. Copper is from Nordic Mini Husky, like his sister Skye. They share the same father, Apollo, who was a red and white Alaskan Klee Kai. Apparently Apollo is responsible for Copper’s vocal chords!
We adopted Copper in March 2018 after toying with the idea of getting a second dog for a number of months. On the advice of our breeder Brenda, we went with Copper. He has perfectly complemented Skye. It’s been love at first sight for them.
Copper is a loving soul that could probably be described as a velcro dog. He craves companionship. He rarely leaves our side. Wherever we go, Copper is like a shadow. Having said that, he likes to snuggle in his dog bed just as much as with Mom and Dad.
He’s food motivated which has helped with training. So he’s been easy to teach the basic commands but potty training took a little longer with this naughty boy. He’s got a big prey drive, which means seeing a cat, fox or squirrel in London drives him insane.
Copper isn’t as social as Skye. He takes a little while to warm up to new people. However, once you’ve earned his trust, he’ll happily ask for neck scratches or belly tickles. His favourite pastime is to play with his sister Skye, whether it’s a wrestling match on the bed or a tug of war on the sofa.
