ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – “Cody” may look small and shy now, but he will be mighty one day, and serving someone in need.

Cody, a 10-week-old chocolate lab mix, is being trained to become a service dog in the CHAMP Assistance program.

While CHAMP provides their service dogs free of charge, it takes two years and costs more than $14,000 to train just one animal to assist a person with disabilities.

Volunteer Gerry Auger is presenting her glassware from A Touch of Glass at Lafayette High School this weekend with proceeds benefiting the CHAMP program.
