Coco is an almost two-year-old, 21-pound, owner surrender, who equally loves naptime and playtime. Although it may take her some time to come out of her shell, she will curl up alongside you or bring you (or another dog) a toy to play with. She does not appreciate forced cuddling but once she trusts you, she will show her affection. Coco has had some rough times to get through in her life- no fault of hers though. Coco came to CFBR after her and her owner bravely left a turbulent relationship. Because of this, Coco is still learning what it feels like to be truly safe and protected and has residual anxiety around loud noises, loud voices and chaotic environments. Coco’s perfect home will be calm and quiet – so if you play the drums, have kids who only hear if you scream, or find yourself frequently yelling at the television (sports, politics, game shows) perhaps (one of our hearing impaired dogs) might be a better fit for you!

Coco has a lot of puppy energy, and she can get a little mouthy when playing plus the loud excitement younger children have a tendency for expressing themselves would be overwhelming for her. She is good with other dogs, but she may exude some hesitation when greeting people and other dogs, following the lead from the resident frenchie in her current foster home. Coco loves taking walks, and she has become accustomed to the occasional car ride she wasn’t a big fan with car rides when she came into our care. Bonus points if you have a fenced in yard, as she loves to explore. One thing for sure- Coco she loves to be near her person/people!

Coco would likely prefer to have someone who doesn’t work or works from home, but she does well with crates and gates. She does not love taking stairs without traction; wood-paneled stairs were tough, but she eventually got used to going up them (still might need some work going down them!). Coco sleeps well through the night, crated or near her people.

Coco is a voracious eater, and so she has a slow-feeder bowl. She is also a water guzzler, so it’s best to soak her kibble and/or allow her small amounts of water throughout the day. Too much water during or right after a meal and she might regurgitate her food.  We recommend investing in the fluff trough slow dog feeder if you end up being the lucky one to adopt Coco. Coco is potty-trained but may have the occasional accident after too much water or playtime.

If you think you are the ideal forever home for Coco after reading her bio- please complete our online application. Her adoption fee is $1200 and she is spayed- had her palate done- current on all vaccines- HW  and fecal negative and current on her Heartworm and flea preventative. She comes with her leash, harness, some of her current food, blanket and has a lot of love to offer the right home that opens their heart and home to her.
