APPLICATIONS PENDING! ....Hi Everyone - I am Coco, a distinguished looking cockapoo with beautiful lighter brown soulful eyes! I am told it is difficult to resist them when I look so longingly up at my fosters (it even gets me extra treats sometimes!). I have had a rough last few months, you see, my elderly owner of 6 years passed away and her children took me in which seemed like a good thing at first. However, they made me an outside dog with their 2 large dogs and I was never used to living outside and did not make out to well there so they turned me into the shelter. I was terrified and afraid and the longer I was there I got even more afraid and got an ear infection so got a little snappy with the staff. Lucky for me the staff realized I was just scared and they called the nice people at CAP who came and took me to a foster home where I am living now! I did a 180 after 24 hours with them and have really come a long way in trusting them already! I get along well with other dogs, love people in general, I like some toys, am house trained, and have a really soft coat. Once I get to know you I am told my kisses are sweet and I like to cuddle! I really like belly rubs and like to have my humans in sight when they are home. I am not sure if I like cats, and my fosters were told I like kids, but it might take a little for me to warm up if they are little....I am not sure yet. I am neutered and up to date on vaccinations and like to lay on the sofa or a lap when I can. Everyone that meets me says I have a gorgeous coat as the colors are mixed and unique....just like me I guess. I am told I am very sweet and will make someone a great companion, could it be you? I would like to find my furever home and settle in for a long life with a new family I can call my own forever! Just complete an application at www.cockersacrosspa.org under the adopt tab and we can be together soon!
Coco has really bonded with his foster dad and will run and make a flying leap from the floor to get to his lap for attention. He loves when his dad gives him attention and belly rubs. He loves to go for walks with his dad, although when he sees the leash he thinks it is time to roll over for belly rubs. However Coco doesn't trust easily and can be standoffish with new people. He would do best with a single person who is home most of the time. A fenced in yard for him to go out and come back inside on his own initially would be essential. He will be a wonderful companion for the right person who is willing to give him the time and space to learn to trust them.
