Little Coco has had his world turned upside down and he just doesn't know what to make of it. This little Jack Russell came to us at 8 years old because his owner could no longer care for him. He didn't do anything wrong, so he doesn't understand what happened, but he's trying to make the best of it and hopes for a loving new family that will give him the love and patience that he needs. Coco was a bit standoffish at first and who can blame him? Once he has the time to get to know you though, he can be very, very sweet. He's a well behaved little guy that has lived a quiet life so he would love a commotion-free home with no small children. When Coco gets to know you he'll be your best friend for life. Coco will need a home with no cats or small dogs, but he does get along just fine with larger dogs. Coco is hoping that a wonderful family will come along and notice him, and offer him the loving, safe, happy home that he is so deserving of. File#26827 11/13/16
