Breed: Japanese Chin DOB: 8/20/2010 Gender: female Altered: no Coat: medium Size: small Color(s): black/white Description Hi, I'm Cutie Potootie, a sweet Japanese Chin in need of a new home with my 'sister' Joy as sadly our owner has passed away. We've been together for many years, so we have to be adopted together. I'm outgoing and active. We get along with other dogs, cats and children, but would do best in an adult only home or a home with older children. We know basic commands and walk well on leash. We are crate and paper trained and know how to use a doggie door. If you have room in your heart and home for two lovable dogs, please fill out an online application to meet us.July 12, 2024, 11:54 am

When shelters label dogs like Cocoa as "RESCUE ONLY" it means that a dog may only be taken from the shelter by a Rescue Organization, and not directly by a single person. Biting is a serious issue and municipal shelters count on rescues like us to help. Cocoa's Story: Cocoa was rescued from a shelter by another organization a few months back. He had found a forever home, but due to his biting was returned to the rescue. They didn't have room to take him back so they reached out to us! Cocoa is a 7 year old Maltese/Poodle mix. He is for the majority of the time a really sweet and lovable boy. He loves to play and is great with other dogs. We are learning that he is triggered when he is overwhelmed and overstimulated. Gloves are a great tool to help dogs understand that biting is not an effective way to get their owner's attention. We are not dog trainers, but are trying our best to help him improve. Cocoa needs a patient adopter who is willing to invest time and care into correcting his behavior. If you're interested in adopting, please fill out our rescue questionnaire linked under "ADOPT" in our bio. Once we process and approve the application, we will reach out to set up an appointment. Thank you for your patience!
