BREED: Lab/Boxer Mix
ADOPTION FEE: $250
Now what the heck is this girl doing here? 6 years old, full of energy, no major health issues... definitely not a dog you'll see often at GOT! But sadly, a middle-aged, black "pit bull" was just not getting noticed at the shelter. We have the best adopters so we took Cocoa, knowing she'd be in a fabulous forever home very soon!
Cocoa is a fun dog. She's always up for an adventure- a walk, a car ride, a romp out in the yard. Anything as long as she can spend time with you! She's a little head shy for a few seconds, especially with men, but once she learns she's going to get kisses and belly rubs she'll be anyone's best friend. (Not a great tool for protecting us from burglars, but hey we've got the Chihuahuas for that.) She is house trained, quiet, and well mannered. Her previous family said she had lived with cats before, but we're seeing little evidence of that. So her new home should be cat-free, although dogs and kids will be good friends for her. Be advised that Cocoa is chunky as well as bouncy, so she may knock over small kids by accident. Also we'd love to see her lose a few pounds! Cocoa has a bit of a sensitive stomach, so she'll need to be on a diet for that- Purina Pro Plan has worked so far. So you see what an easy pup she is!
This awesome girl isn't going to be with us long- don't wait to apply or you might miss out!
