Meet Coco! This little girl is a two-year-old whippet-cross, who we think contains some Staffy, and is definitely full to the brim with beans! Coco loves to run and play, so a home with a large secure garden in a country environment where she can zoom her head off would be ideal. Coco has previously been a pet, and lived in a home her whole life showing herself to be clean and able to be left for short periods once she is settled.
Coco is currently working hard on her behaviour around other dogs, and is not quite ready for her forever home just yet. However, we would consider placing her with an adopter who has access to secure, private land (to exercise her away from other dogs) or a large enough garden to exercise Coco without going out in public. You must be looking for a project dog to continue working with using reward-based training methods, with support from our behaviour team. Coco is making plenty of new friends and great progress around other dogs in controlled and predictable situations. However she is not yet ready for walks out in public, where unfamiliar dogs could appear unexpectedly!
What Coco loves:
- Playing. Coco loves to play tug and chase but she’ll also merrily play by herself.
- Getting out and about in private areas. Coco loves her exercise especially in quiet places where she can really involve herself in the important business of sniffing.
- Stretching out on the sofa
- Running in the garden
- Food! She really loves a good chew
- Training, especially with food rewards. A very clever girl who truly loves learning new things
What Coco currently needs:
- A quiet, adult-only home.
- To be an only dog
- A secure garden
- No dogs in neighbouring properties
- Private walking areas where she will not meet other dogs
- An active home
- Someone home most of the day while she settles and builds trust in separation from people
