Meet Cooper


Cooper has been our facility "Pup" and started his "on the job" training on May 3rd, 2010. Residents, Staff, Family and Friends of Franciscan Villa have watched Cooper grow, and grow, and learn the ropes of being a "facility dog".

Cooper loves all of the friends that he visits everyday, playing fetch, getting treats of fresh apples, tomatoes, and peanut butter. He also loves visiting with the children from CDC on a regular basis. He knows that his most important job duty is to make everyone smile and is the official greeter of the Villa. Cooper knows he is an important member of our team and works hard to fill the shoes of "Buddy", our first facility dog.

If you haven't had a chance to meet "Cooper", please stop by next time you are at Franciscan Villa, Cooper can usually be found in the activity room Monday through Friday, where he shares office space with the activity staff.
