Cocoa, a 4 1/2 years old, 7 lbs male terrier/Chihuahua mix, loves playing with squeaky toys, tug of war, fetch and walks. He is in great health and loves to sleep with his person. He has a feisty personality and is somewhat territorial and head-shy (approach him so he sees your hand holding treat; don't just pick him up or put hand behind his head), and he barks at noises. Be nice and understanding to him, he'll be nice to you. Probably best as an only dog, as he might get jealous of another dog. He was rescued after being found wandering the street a few years ago.
If you would like to meet Cocoa or get more information about him, contact Sharon McDonnell at email@example.com
