ADOPTED ON 04-11-15 – Coco is an approximately one year old female Maltese. She was recently spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. She weighs approximately 5 lbs. Coco was in very bad shape when she came into rescue with her brother. Her hair was very matted and had to be shaved off. In her former home she was shut in an unused room of the house. There were children in her former home, but we are not sure how much interaction she had with them.

Despite Coco’s rough start and  terrible experiences with humans in the beginning, she is very loving. She loves to follow her foster mom wherever she goes.  She enjoys playing with dogs of all sizes and mills about when she is outside.  Coco really loves to be inside, when she is done playing with the other dogs she waits by the door to come in. In addition to playing with other dogs, Coco likes to fetch toys that are bigger than her, and when she is done she loves taking naps in her foster mother’s lap.

She is a little apprehensive with people she does not know. We are actively working with Coco and socializing her with people. We are confident that the more positive experiences she has with humans the more comfortable she will become with new people.

Coco does excellent on leash. When she was first taken from her former home the owner told our foster ” she has never walked on leash and will not.”  After the first 5 minutes on leash she got the hang of it. 9 days later Coco is a pro at loose leash walking! Coco rides freely in the car and lies down for a nap. Coco enjoys her crate, and is crated when no one is home .

Coco was previously house trained to go on newspaper in her former home, so she will have accidents if not taken out frequently.  Her house training is a work in progress, and she continues to improve every day. She is young, and with positive reinforcement we are confident that she will be fully housetrained in no time.

The ideal home for Coco would be one where she could spend lots of time with her humans. She is a true lap dog and her favorite thing to do is snuggle.  Coco’s new home may possibly include children over the age of ten, who could understand that she needs a little time to warm up. Coco is a small gal so apartment living or a house would be fine.  She is very fast, and a fenced in yard would be ideal, but is not required. Her exercise level is moderate , and walks and playtime would be sufficient to fit her needs.  Do you have an open spot in your lap and you heart for our little diva?

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
