61 viewsMargieJ's Rupert is a 4 year old cockapoo adopted from the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter. In October 2017 he had IVDD surgery at the age of 3. Ruperts favorite thing to do is go out to for runs at the park with his mommy. Since his surgery he's no longer able to keep up so we bought him a stroller and now he's able to join him mommy on her runs. He runs for 10 minuted and then he goes on his stroller to rest. Rupert is unstoppable!
