Important Note

Coqueta is best friends with Coco. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Hello Everyone, My name is Coqueta. I am an 11 year old, 10 pound female bichon mix. My brother Coco and I have been together all of our 11 years. We are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. We are both housebroken and, as a pair, we are less work than one pup. We keep each other entertained and help prevent separation anxiety issues when transitioning to new environments. We rely on each other for social cues and build up each other's confidence in new situations. I am a good walker on leash for about 1 to 2 miles. I love to stop and sniff everything. Occasionally things that move fast like skateboards and bicycles startle me and I bark, but my foster mom reassures me and I continue on our journey. I like to play with squeak toys and enjoy being brushed and belly rubbed. During the day I like to sleep on the couch and at night I like my own bed on the floor in your bedroom.

My brother Coco likes to go for a short strolls and smell everything. He goes for about a block or two and then wants to be carried or a ride in the stroller. He doesn’t have as much energy as me because he is not well. About a month ago, Coco had to have a delicate surgery to remove a tumor from his bladder. He has healed up nicely and is enjoying being with me in our foster home. But there's some bad news. Coco’s tumor was malignant and our doctor said he may only have a few short months left. He is not in any pain and our aunties promised to keep him comfortable till the end. What we want more than anything is a forever home right away so that I will feel safe and secure before my brother goes to the rainbow bridge. Our aunties are working on an arrangement to help with Coco's expenses and would love to talk to you.

Would you find it in your heart to take me and my brother in and care for me forever? I would really love that.

I have had a thorough health evaluation including spay and vaccinations and I am microchipped. I have also had a complete dental cleaning so I'm ready to be adopted.

If you would like to meet me please visit our website at and submit an application to start the adoption process!

About Bichon Rescue of Orange County Seniors for Seniors

About Our Rescue Group...

Bichon Rescue of Orange County (BROC) Seniors for Seniors was organized to address the ever increasing number of senior bichons and other small breeds that are being surrendered by their owners and dropped off at local shelters in Orange County. We are committed to cultivating our senior citizens both as volunteer fosters and as adopters. Seniors for Seniors will encourage qualified Senior adopters to adopt senior pups.
We have over ten years of combined history in rescue and a team of dedicated volunteers, committed to our Mission.
