Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog.  Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture.  While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face.  Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home.  We want to create furever families. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application.  You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side.  You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

What kind of home would be best for me?  Coco would do best in a home with an experienced adopter who will assert their role as leader of the pack.  Otherwise, Coco will gladly take over as head of the household. 

What is my personality like?  Coco has a very confident and dominant type personality.  He is headstrong and he definitely has a stubborn streak.  He likes to do whatever he wants and he can give a little attitude if you are trying to make him do something he doesn't want to do.  Coco is an energetic dog and he absolutely loves playtime.  His favorite thing to do is to rip the stuffing out of his toys. 

How I act when I first meet new people:  Friendly but also cautious.

House trained?  Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

My age:  Reportedly 4 years old so estimated birthdate is 6/25/2012

Please note - we do not ship dogs.  If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home.   You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc.  Others here may be a better fit for you.  It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description.  Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a  dog not in our listings yet.  We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
