*** Coco is now RESERVED. We are no longer accepting applications for Coco, thank you ***
Coco is a gorgeous girl, she loves everyone and everything (except baths!). She is currently living with one of our amazing foster carers who says this about her …..
“Coco has only been with me a short while but has made a huge impression. She is a lovely dog, quite chilled out most of the time.
She’s prone to barky outbursts when she wants your attention, usually during a work conference call, or when discussing important jobs with the builder! She can certainly pick her moments. I am sure with some training, this will easily be overcome.
Coco is definitely food orientated, so training should be a breeze. She is already great at doing a sit, leave, paw etc. She walks amazingly well on the lead, though when she wants to, she can be extremely strong. She loves to stop and sniff the daily doggy newspaper, so be prepared for walks to take a little longer than you expect. She is dog friendly and was incredibly gentle with a tiny puppy she met on a walk.
Coco is house trained and has had just one accident in the house, overnight. She takes treats (which she loves!) very gently and is not possessive over food or toys. She loves chew toys, chasing tennis balls and a good old tug of war with a piece of rope.
She can jump when she gets excited so may be best suited to a family with older children, or no children. She is a big, powerful pooch, a big softy, but powerful all the same. She can also open doors quite easily! Car journeys with her are a dream, usually sat or even laid in the back, not a sound from her at all.
We have encountered a few cats on our travels, but she hasn’t really shown much interest. I believe she doesn’t like birds though. She has shown a keen interest in distant horses, and pulls to get nearer, but we haven’t been close to one yet.
Coco likes to look out of the window if she can get to one, though doesn’t react to any passers by. Whilst I work, she lies on her bed, occasionally coming to me for a cuddle or play. In the evening she likes to snuggle with her head on your lap, she adores being adored. I think she would be best suited with someone who has a lot of time/attention to give her, a large garden to run around in and even a family with another dog to play with. Coco is a very big dog, don’t underestimate the size and power of her tail!”
If you want Coco to join your family we suggest getting yourself to the pet shop for some “indestructible” toys and a regular subscription of tennis balls. She loves play time both with her toys and other dogs, she may be a little too boisterous for older or smaller dogs though.
If you don’t like your face being licked, Coco isn’t the dog for you! She needs an active home willing to take her on long walks and play all day. Coco could happily live with another dog.
Coco would be best suited to a home where someone is around most of the day because she becomes stressed when left home alone. There is lots of advice online about how to help dogs with separation anxiety. We recommend contacting a reputable trainer the help with this
