Cooper is a 2 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 graduated with his veteran handler, Brandon Shelton, US Army, in August 2020. He even got to be the best man in Brandon’s wedding! We are so thrilled for this thriving team and we feel lucky to be a small part in their big adventures together. Thanks to the generosity of the Los Angeles Rams organization for making this partnership possible.
