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!

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.
