Cocoa was surrendered to rescue when her owner was no longer able to care for her.   She was understandably confused at first, but after some quiet time in foster care has blossomed into a sweet & wiggly happy little girl.
She adores belly rubs & canine play buddies of all sizes.  Cats are probably OK, but she hasnt met any in person. Due to her small size, very small humans might not be a good fit. School age kids who respect her space seem cool with Cocoa though.

Cocoa is leash trained, housetrained & enjoys car rides as long as they dont go to the "v-e-t".   She'd prefer if they were to McD's or Petco.  She is also crate trained, but would much prefer to snuggle with you in the "big bed" or on the sofa if allowed.
