My Story

Date into Rescue: 11/1/2018

Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to VA shelter

Special Needs: none noted

What kind of home would be best for me: Coco is looking for a retirement home with an experienced chihuahua owner. All he wants is a lap to snuggle, warm food and cold water.

What is my personality like:

Coco is the best dog in the entire world and you will be so very lucky to have him in your life!

Coco is a velcro dog. He will follow you from room to room.

Coco lost all of his teeth and his lower jaw from a severe mouth infection.  His tongue sticks out but he still gives kisses.  He does need a little help eating.  It must be Royal Canine Senior canned food.  He has done well eating on his own with a tilted cat bowl unless the food packs down.  It’s very easy to feed him and he loves to eat.

How do I act when I first meet new people: A little cautious but warms up quickly

Tips and Tidbits:

At four pounds, his heart is 47 times bigger than his entire body.  

House trained: 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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
