Meet Coco

Coco is an incredibly cute and charming little girl. Although she is 7 years old - she doesn't know it and acts like a much younger dog. She loves to play with her foster brother Yoda and run round the yard. She is very well housetrained (she's fine with a doggie door) and loves being inside, as such we would like her to go to a family where she will be very much the inside family dog. She isn't a fussy eater at all and loves her food and has even been known to visit the chook pen next door to help herself to their bread, all without upsetting the chooks and even takes back bread to share for her doggie companions at home, now that's a caring sharing little girl. She travels well in the car and if she is off lead is very well behaved and she will not run off and always comes when called. Unfortunately Coco is camera shy so we haven't been able to get a picture that shows just how cute this girl is. She is not used to younger children (she tends to hide from them) so a family with kids over 8 would be preferred. Coco is fine with other similar sized dogs and loves to play with them. This girl is a real charmer and is waiting to find her forever home.

Coco was adopted on 21 September 2009 after 4 months in foster care
