Coco, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, is a sweet little morsel. She is an adult Chihuahua from Lincoln, Nebraska. Coco is already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Coco’s Tale:

Coco weighs 7 pounds and is a 5 year old female long hair Chihuahua that has spent the first 5 years of her life in one of the “horrible 100” puppy mills in Missouri. Due to the poor conditions she was living in, Coco had to be shaved upon her release as she was extremely matted. She is learning that humans can be kind and good.

Coco enjoys other dogs and also gets along well with the cats in her foster home. She enjoys napping next to a furry friend and loves dinner time. She is still learning to go potty outside and walk on a leash, and needs a fenced yard to allow her to continue with this training and explore her world in safety.

Since she often takes the lead from other dogs’ behavior, she would do best with another confident dog to ‘show her the ropes’. Coco is a nervous girl who startles at sudden movements. Her ideal family would be a home with calm, patient humans who are willing to allow her to progress toward confidence at her own pace. With time and lots of love and patience, Coco will blossom into the happy, self-assured little girl she was meant to be.
