Koko is a 7 year old girl, who weighs 40lbs. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She will need a physical fence. She has perfect house manners and does not need to be crated. She is approved for kids 10 and up, is good with other dogs, but seems too interested in cats to live with them. Koko loves to cuddle, long walks and squeaky toys. Koko has diabetes and needs one insulin injection each day to keep her happy and healthy.
Update from Koko's foster on March 9: Koko had a vacation foster while her foster mom was out of town and did wonderful there. "Koko was a dream to foster, even with the rain and snow! This little 40lb nugget was so chill in a new home and greeted several service men with a bark and tail wag! Koko takes treats very gently, and loves to snooze in a sunbeam or on the couch if invited. Koko is very smart and loving!"
Oct 8, 2017: Koko is playful, affectionate, smart as a whip, and loves long walks and car rides. She is perfect in the house, and is not crated. Koko needs a fenced in yard only because she will not poop on a leash, though her foster family is working with her on that and she's making progress. A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus but one simple insulin injection daily has restored her to her normal, exuberant self. Koko does fine in an end unit townhouse with a ton of activity and traffic and rarely barks unless someone comes to the door. She would probably be best as an only pet but can and does live with another dog whom she has learned to trust. Koko is good on walks and loves to say hello to the neighbors. She does not like meeting neighborhood dogs face to face but is fine sitting at a comfortable distance when her people are chatting with another dog owner.
Update from Koko's foster on Aug 21, 2017: KoKo is a dream in the house and a smart, affectionate girl who only wants to please and get belly rubs in return. She loves to go for walks and could jog with you but also fine hanging out and watching a little TV and cuddling. She's great in the car and would love trips especially those involving water. Baby pool in the back yard works in the mean time.
Watch her with her foster brother on
Koko is a lovely frosted girl who will do most anything for a delicious treat! She was eager to show off her sit, down and impressive tongue shot for the camera!
