Breed(s): Terrier, Pit Bull/Mixed Breed (Medium)
When Cocoa wanders up to you and rests her head on your lap, you'll know she's just about the sweetest mixed-breed brindle you've met. This one-year-old's big brown eyes will simply make you melt. There's nothing more rewarding for her than spending time with people, and she'll follow you everywhere. A work-from-home family that's nearby often might be the best life she could imagine. She loves playing with other dog, which isn't surprising for this youngster, and she's a big fan of the tough toys. Throw her kong and you'll see how playful she can be. Cocoa knows "here, not that she needs a reason to come close to her favorite people. For those she hasn't met, starting with a treat is a sure-fire way to make fast friends with her. The same is true for youngsters, too. She might like cats if given the chance, but dogs are really the playmates she prefers. She walks on her leash nicely, but insists on giving a shout out to her fellow canine friends as she strolls. Affection and attention are important to Cocoa, and over time, as she gets used to even more familiar faces, she won't feel like she has to draw attention to the people she hasn't met yet. She'll just be happy to have more people around her. Since she's been on her own for a while, adjusting to the luxuries of home, such as crates and even mealtime, are the skills that she's working to polish. Letting her have her own dish at dinnertime will make home life easier for her to settle into her forever home. She's housebroken and healthy and looking for a family to love her.
