Zipper the service dog in training gets ready for his mission

DENVER -- Zipper, our service dog in training who we'll be following for the next couple of years, visited FOX31 on Wednesday night.

The chocolate Lab puppy was with his handler, Erin Conley from Freedom Service Dogs of America. He's on a very important mission.

Viewers got to see Zipper live on FOX31 News at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows for the first time.

During the duo’s visit, Conley shared information on how people can donate to Freedom Service Dogs of America. The organization is in need of dog treats.

There are more ways to donate. Follow Zipper on Twitter at @ZipperTweets.
