Looking for a Love Bug in the form of a gorgeous, sweet and very friendly purebred Boxer dog? My name is Cocoa, and I am looking for a loving new home. I am just 7 years young and have been spayed and fully vaccinated. I am perfectly house broken and am crate trained, too.

My owner loves me so much. Unfortunately she is having to move to another state, and to a home where pets like me are not allowed. She is devastated to have to make the difficult decision to find me another home, but is hopeful that a good home can be found.

I am such a great girl. I love to snuggle and am very well behaved, devoted and good company. I’m more into cuddling than playing. I am great with kids and get along very well with other dogs, too.

I have some allergies that are well controlled, as long as I stick to my special diet. The vet says that I have a slight heart murmur, so that is something my new owners will need to be aware of. Overall, I am a healthy girl and have a lot of love to offer the right owners.

Please offer me the loving, forever home I need and very much deserve. I can’t wait to cuddle up to you and show you what a special girl I am!

Cocoa gets along with:
Older Children, Adults Only

She’s a big chicken with a deep bark, and she will bark at anything that moves. She’s not the brightest bulb in the pack but she’s so sweet and likes to cuddle and lick. She is a follower, not a leader. She doesn’t play with toys too much, but she’s a major foodie which makes it hard because she can’t have anything but her food and marshmallows for treats.She learns things, but it just takes a little longer because she’s stubborn.

I am moving to another state into a residence where large dogs are not allowed.

About Knoxville Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

We help pet owners safely and effectively rehome their pets when they are no longer able to care for them.
We help keep family pets out of shelters and rescues by giving owners the tools they need to effectively find responsible new families to care for their pet.

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
