Meet Coco, our resident princess. Coco was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Georgia hours before she was to be euthanized. Although we do not have any information about her background, it's seems that Coco's early years did not allow her the joys and comforts of being a family pet, but you would never know it from her demeanor. One look at those soulful eyes and she will win you over! Coco is sweet and generally easy going. She is fully house trained, has good house manners (no jumping or begging at the table, no jumping on furniture) and is great with kids. She's a real nanny dog! Coco loves to play with toys and bones and has good recall. She knows a few basic commands, as well. Although she's not petite, she is gentle. Coco is smart and catches on quickly. She will fit in well with most environments and would be fine with kids or laid-back non-territorial adult dogs. She doesn't need tons of room, either, since she's mellow, and does well in a fenced-in yard or on a leash. When she came to us, Coco was underweight but is now at a good healthy weight and is totally thriving. Coco is fully up to date on vaccines and spayed. Coco has some lumps on her body, which are benign skin tumors. These are not cancer, require no treatment and they do not hurt her. They are very common in labs as they get older. Her teeth are in good shape, so she may be younger than estimated.
Coco has so much to give and her happiness is infectious. We hope you’ll allow her sunshine to fill your days with joy.
Update from foster on 7/22/16: I wanted to send you an update on how Coco is doing. She's a great girl and has adjusted so well to our home. She absolutely adores the kids - she actually sits at the door and cries when they leave. And nothing makes her happier than when they return (although peanut butter and playing with her toys are close seconds). She is a perfect family dog - fully housetrained, very friendly and not at all destructive. As much as we love having her with us, I hope she will be able to find her forever home soon!
