Coco needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping her get a new start?
Coco comes to us from Castaic. The shelter staff and volunteers had fallen for her soulful eyes and gentle demeanor and wanted her rescued. Having been surrendered not once but twice (her family felt guilty after the first surrender and took her back only to leave her again) has done a number on her ability to trust, but we are making strides every day. She is already rolling over for belly rubs! She is extremely respectful of her place in the house by not jumping on furniture or beds, preferring her own dog bed on the floor. She places her paw into yours when she asks for affection and considers walks to be the best treat ever. Mostly, she is just contented to be with her human. We are looking for a wonderful home for this sweet, calm and intelligent girl whose teeth - by the way - do not look like those of a seven year old's.
