Hello! My name is Coco (#3478) and I arrived from China in late March 2021.My foster family describes me as “an amazingly sweet and loving dog.” (I feel the same about them.) I truly want nothing more from life than the love and attention of a family. I absolutely adore the three teenagers in my foster home and eagerly wait for them to wake up each morning so I can greet them with exuberance. (My foster mom says sometimes my exuberance is “over-the top” but I happen to think it’s right where it’s supposed to be.) Overall, I have a medium energy level except when my foster family returns from outings, when I meet new people, or when I know I am going on a walk. I LOVE going on walks and love playing in the river by my foster family’s house. I am pretty good on a leash – I am using a harness which has worked well so far.
I get along fine with the resident dog in my foster home but am far more interested in human attention. I am food motivated and am easily focused on treats for training. I am a natural pleaser, so treat or no treat, I listen and respond to redirection quickly when needed. Although food motivated, I do not counter surf or resource guard and am gentle when given treats. I am still working on the alternatives to jumping when I am excited.
