MEET COCO!! This beautiful chocolate girl is around 6 years old. Coco came to us months ago after she was found injured in the woods. Her left front leg was so damaged that it was beyond repair, and it was causing her a great deal of pain, so we chose to amputate it and give Coco the best possible quality of life. Since then, Coco has healed wonderfully from her surgery. She gets around great on 3 legs, and it’s like she doesn’t even miss it!
Coco was very closed off and nervous when she first came to LFS. She has been working on socialization and manners with a trainer, and she now has more confidence and seems to be a happier dog! Coco is ready to find her forever home. She will need someone willing to continue to work on her confidence with her, as she still sometimes has a hard time trusting new people.
At this time, Coco would do best in a home without children. She has been fine with adults, as long as she is allowed a proper introduction first. Coco appears to have a more dominant personality with other dogs, so she would do best in a home with a more submissive doggy buddy. She has been exposed to cats and had no reaction to them even when they were reactive to her through the cage front. Overall Coco is a happy, energetic and very social girl. Everyone at the training facility has fallen in love with her.

COCO NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!! Coco has done well at the training facility, but now it is time for her to go to a foster home where she can learn what the good life really is. Please consider opening your heart and home to Coco!

Update 10/14/2019: This 3 legged girl can get around just like any other dog. She does best with small dogs. She would also do best with an owner that has time to invest in her, and she will return the love forever. She loves to snuggle and just be with me all day long no matter what we are doing. Coco is amazingly smart and will do anything for praise, love or treats.

    Has Coco been adopted? I cannot adopt her…I have 6 rescues, but her story pulled on my heart. For the life of me I cannot understand someone mistreating an animal. I have some filthy choice words and wishes for that type of person that I am not going to share with you.
