Cooper is a 1 year old Corgi-Shepherd mix we adopted from Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in Los Angeles under the generous Red Star Sponsorship of the Los Angeles Rams. Cooper is an eager pup who LOVES to train. Training is his favorite time of the day, everyday! He has great focus and is driven by treats, ball time, and affection. He is a super fun pup and we are thrilled to have him in our program.

Cooper is currently in handler training with his veteran Brandon Shelton, U.S. Army. Cooper is very bonded to Brandon and the feeling is mutual. We look forward to their graduation together as a veteran/service dog pair this Spring!
