Hi, I'm CoCo Puffs, and my foster mom says I am just as sweet as my name. Everyone thinks I am still pretty young since when I run and play I am all "legs and paws." I have been working very hard on sit, and keeping all 4 of my paws on the ground, but sometimes I just can't resist getting up where you are and seeing what you are doing! There are just so many interesting things in this big world and I just have to see them all! I guess that is why they call me CoCo Sniffer, because I have to stick my nose everywhere and check everything out!!

Guess what else I found out in my adventures?! I love to relax on beds and couches! They are so soft and comfortable, I just love to hop up on them and snuggle with anyone and everyone! I get so excited just getting to spend time with the family, I have a hard time making up my mind who I want to love first! My Foster Mom says I am such a wonderful sweet little guy, just the right size, the perfect size for a family with kids.

I am still learning all sorts of things, manners is one of them, so I would need someone patient and kind who will show me what they want from me. I am very willing to learn, just let me know what you want me to do! I am already crate trained and go potty outside. Also if you tell me to "look" I will look at you and wait for you to tell me what you would like me to do next. I loooove to go for a car ride, and I sit very nicely in the car after being initially excited! I will lay down to take a nap until we get to where we are going.

I love everybody and I currently live with 5 other dogs. The other dogs I live with were all quite a bit bigger than me, but we all get along fine. I also live with 3 kids that were between the ages 2 through 9. They are all very kind, sharing their family with me, and I do so love everyone here, but I really want a family of my own to love! I know there must be someone somewhere out there who will love me and teach me what I need to know to be a good friend. I promise to try my hardest if you would only give me the chance to show you what a good boy I am.

CoCo Puffs Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed DNA Test Results revealed his ancestry includes some American Staffordshire Terrier and trace amounts each of Boxer, Bulldog,English Cocker Spaniel, and Scottish Terrier (the test revealed less statistical confidence in the Scottish Terrier).

Update from his foster home that has several dogs and small to older children
"Coco is doing fine, he really is a sweet guy, and starting to love up to everyone already, quite a snuggle bug too, if you let him, I think he would crawl into your pj's with you if you let him!! He is a sweet dog, pretty much non-reactive to other dogs and loves to play!

Important - Please Read!
The Adoption process is designed to help place dogs with homes that are in the best interest of the dogs and their human companions. The adoption process starts with a pre screen review of a Guardian Application. Making decisions about dog placement in adoptive homes is an "art", not a "science", and there will be times when applications will be denied for various reason(s). This is left to the discretion of the MAPS Review Team after reviewing relevant information. MAPS reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care into a foster or adoptive home. There is no guarantee that any applicant(s) requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through MAPS, or posted on MAP's website, will be granted an adoption.

After a successful prescreen, including background checks, the applicant(s) are notified that they can visit the dogs and a time slot is made for the dog and applicant interaction. After the interaction we encourage several days of reflection before adopting a pet to help assure this will be a lifetime commitment of love and quality care for the dog. Next we conduct a home/neighborhood visit to the Guardian Applicant's home. If the home visit proves successful the new mom and/or dad of the dog will sign an Adoption Agreement and share a lifetime of love!

Our Adoption Process...

The Adoption process is designed to help best place dogs with homes that are in the best interest of the dogs and their human companions. Not placing meaningful "dogs best interest" criteria on adopters for any dog can too easily put the dog in charge of the direction of the relationship and it is irresponsible for the dog, the family, and society. The adoption process starts with a prescreen review of an Guardian Application. Making decisions about dog placement in adoptive homes is an "art", not a "science", and there will be times when applications will be denied for various reason(s). This is left to the discretion of the MAPS after reviewing relevant information. MAPS reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care into a foster or adoptive home. There is absolutely no guarantee, made or implied, that any person or persons requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through MAPS, or posted on MAP's web site, will be granted an adoption. After a successful prescreen, including background checks, the applicant(s) are notified that they can visit the dogs and a time slot is made for the dog and applicant interaction. After the interaction we encourage several days of reflection before adopting a pet to help assure this will be a lifetime commitment of love and quality care for the dog. Next we conduct a home/neighborhood visit to the Guardian Applicant's home. If the home visit proves successful the new mom and/or dad of the dog will sign an Adoption Agreement and share a lifetime of love !
