Coco is a 55-60 pound, 1 1/2 year old Boxer mix. Mixed with what you say? She has the underbite & color of a Boxer. The drive of a German Shepherd, loves playing in water and with toys like a Labrador and has a bob tail of an Australian Shepherd. We do not know what she is a mix of, but this is a dog that loves life and great outdoor adventures.
Coco was turned into the animal shelter simply because of her large size and need for more exercise. Her former owner took excellent care of her. Let her live inside the house and taught her basic commands. Coco needs to be able to stretch her legs. The first day that we brought her home, we turned her loose into an acre size yard. She ran and ran, just like you can imagine a horse would do when let out of it's stall to be free. She was so happy and almost didn't know which way to go first.
After her free play time, we put her on a leash and went for a nice casual walk. She was amazingly obedient. Before letting her play, she about pulled us off our feet, when we put a leash on her.
This is a dog that needs activity. She needs a family that truly enjoys activity, not a family that just hopes to get out more, so is getting a dog to help get them motivated. Coco is an amazing dog with amazing potential.
When it came time to take her pictures for this biography, she jumped right up on the chair and posed like a pro. Again, very well behaved. We can't say enough good things about this dog.
Coco is crate trained and house broken. Her former owner stated that she is good with kids. That being said, the kids should be big enough to be knock over proof.
We have not had her around cats.
