My Story

Date into rescue: 09/07/2017

Reason for being in rescue? Found as stray

Special Needs?None

What kind of home would be best for me? A home that that understands the time and energy it takes to raise a puppy. Coco loves to play and enjoy the outdoors. Her favorite thing is to snoop around the back yard. She needs lots of exercise, so an active person or another dog is a must. Of course, she also loves to be with her people. She does enjoy some lap time, but much prefers cuddling with other dogs. She does not like being left alone; she will find something to chew on if she is bored easily. Coco is a sweet and smart girl, but she is full of energy and needs lots of training (just like any puppy). Good with other animals (dogs and cats) and people, including kids. We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away.

What is my personality like? Coco is an energetic and loyal companion. She is very gentle and sweet by nature.

How do I act when I meet new people? Very friendly! She is a puppy and loves everyone! And she really loves hanging out in laps and cuddling!

Tips and Tidbits: She is crate trained and very social. She is working on leash training. So far Coco has learned to sit, shake hands, lay down, come, and wait for dinner. She is a very smart and eager to learn! She can even ring a bell on the door to ask to go outside. She's currently learning how to walk on a loose leash and catch her toys from the air. She does eat FAST, and with that we have figured that she is a “chow hound,” meaning she is probably food motivated.  Although at the same time she does very well with praise, and loves attention from people. So far she is really not much of a barker - only when she's responding to something or other dogs bark first.

House trained? She's a puppy working on her house training! Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
