Coco

Looking for a sweet hound puppy? That’s me!

Little Miss Coco, what to say.  She’s a puppy, a very nice puppy, but still puppy. We think that she is a Manchester Terrier mix, just based upon descriptions that we’ve found online about Manchesters and comparing them to her.  So, based upon our guess we suspect she may weigh up to 20 or so pounds once fully grown.

She’s NOT house broken yet.  Just when we think she’s starting to get it, we find messes.  That being said, she has made progress.  She sometimes lets us know when she wants outside. Coco is starting to learn some basic commands, like sit and come.  She sits for her breakfast and dinner, although getting her to stay long enough to put her bowl down has been up and down.  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.

Since Coco loves attention we have noticed that when she gets a chance she loves to have a lap.  Sometimes the lap is to escape our 13 month old dog, usually it’s because she loves people.  She has proven to be very good with kids, toddlers on up.  She seems to be good with adults.  Her play with people still is a bit rough, some nips and rougher play.  Again, she is a puppy and still learning so much.

We have discovered Coco likes to be outside.  We can’t seem to walk to the door without her running to it too.  At the point she’s not an escape artist, but we fear that as her confidence and independence grow she may try to slip out doors to explore.  Because of this, she does need more work on basic commands, especially “come” and “stay.”  That is for her safety as much as anything else.

Coco needs a home that understands the time and energy it takes to raise a puppy. 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 and people; good with kids.

What is my personality like? She is very gentle and sweet by nature, but she is currently teething and still needs to learn a lot of things.

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.
