Help Coco find a home!

Hey you guys,

So it’s been a little while since I did a pup feature and I am SOOOOOO excited about this one. I mean, I’ve been pumped about every one I have had the honour of helping, but this gal is really tugging at my heart strings.

This sweet little beauty is absolutely GORGEOUS and she’s looking for her furever home!

 

A young gal, Coco is approximately 60lbs, friendly, energetic and playful. She loves to be the center of attention and wants to be by your side whenever she can. Coco still has lots to learn; she is working hard on her leashing training and dog reactivity.  She needs to be reminded that not everyone likes to be jumped up on.  She lives for fetch and could run around with a toy in her mouth for two hours straight if allowed!! Her foster mom Joanna told me that she will throw the ball once for her, and she’ll run around on her own, entertaining herself as long as she’ll let her! How adorable is that?

Joanna also told me that while Coco loves exercise and getting outside to play, she needs her rain jacket on or she won’t go out! What a little princess. haha

 

Hilarious tidbit: she sees a snowman, she punches a snowman with her little paws until its smashed.

This little lady loves to run and play in the off leash area as mentioned, but she’s still working hard on her recalls (coming when called), so it’s best for now that she’s not anywhere offleash (except in a fenced in area). This is getting better, but will take some work before she can be fully trusted offleash! 

Coco LOVES toys. Joanna says her favourite is a kong stuffed with treats, food, peanut butter etc. It will keep her busy for a while, so it’s a good thing to give her if you’ve got to head out for awhile! She also loves plush toys, but she’s a little rough on them – she’ll pull their stuffing out within 30 minutes if you let her!

Coco does get excited when meeting new people so she can be a little bit jumpy. She’s working hard on her manners, but it just comes from a place of love and excitement! She wants to be everyones friend. Once she’s had her exercise, she is so cuddly and just wants to be close to you. She’ll lean on you any chance she gets.

  

Joanna says she can be slightly dog reactive when on leash (she is working on it!), but off leash she is friendly and not aggressive. 

Cmon – that face would never hurt a fly!!! haha

Coco does have some anxiety and she is looking for an owner who can help her build confidence. She does have some fears of things like vacuum, brooms, big sticks etc. She would do well in a home with a laid back male dog but not cats as she has a high prey drive. Coco loves kids but tends to knock them over, so a home with older children may be better suited for her.

Coco is working with a trainer every couple of weeks, and right now she knows how to sit, down, wait, hand, double hand, sit pretty, and up.

Coco is full of potential and would make a great match for an active household. If you’d like to make her a part of your family, please contact us at HugABull (hugabull@gmail.com) today to fill out an adoption form!

           
After all, how could you not want to take this little angel home???
I do realize, not everyone is able to have a dog… however EVERYONE is able to help. Please share this post, and help us find Coco a home – she deserves it! She’s going to make some family very happy – hopefully one day really really soon!

Thanks for reading!
xoxo
Andrea
