Approx Age: 10-11 months
Cute little Cocoa was a stray picked up by animal control. He did well sharing kennel space with other dogs in the shelter but is happy now to be in a Dusty Paws Rescue foster home instead. He is approximately 7 lbs. and 10-11 months old as of the first of the new year 2019.
Cocoa is very good in the home. He is house trained with only occasional accidents. He is crate trained as well yet can be left alone outside the crate without being destructive.
Cocoa is a sociable pup who loves everyone. A family with older children would be fine for him. His foster mom notes that he is an exceptionally sweet dog who loves to snuggle with anyone who wants to sit with him. Cocoa walks well on leash, although being a pup still he is easily distracted and needs some training on commands. (Dusty Paws will reimburse $50 of the adoption fee following completion of a puppy training course). Cocoa is comfortable around other dogs - he may bark at them but soon just wants to play. We don't know how he is with cats.
