2018 MASCUSA Goodwill Ambassador of the Year...Melissa Schmallhorst,  KeiLani Marie and Mockingbirds Copper Shadow

A few years into my (Melissa Schmalhorst) military service, I decided to buy an American Shepherd from Karey Marrs. In a short time he got his championship title and also produced champions. Because of his personality and natural ability I decided to neuter him and donate him to KeiLani Marie as a service dog. It was a match made in heaven. Come to find out he made 2018 Goodwill Ambassador of the Year... Copper’s award is heading your way KeiLani.  The story behind the award is below.
