Meet Kenya (aka Coco)!

Kenya who is affectionately known as Coco is a petite espresso colored velvet fur pibble whose smile is contagious. With nicknames like Cocopuff, Cocobean and Coconut her personality is full circle of precious cuddle bug to athletic playmate.

Coco loves a good sniffari walk, a game of tug and to chase small balls. She is a strong hiker and loves to run and zoom. She will snuggle on the couch and fall asleep in your arms while you watch a movie. She has a squish nose so expect some cute snoring and lots of snorts when she is first waking up.

Coco will tell you it’s time to go outside by pacing near the door. She is working hard on her manner training, she is decent on a leash and is not destructive in a home. She is easy to bathe and practices riding in the car safely.

Coco will slowly open up and connect deeper with her person(s) as she builds trust and confidence. When she rolls over for a belly scratch while snuffling your ear your heart will burst with a special love just for her. Her bond to you will bring an absolute joy you never knew was missing. Her light is so special.

Coco is ok at home when you have to go somewhere, she will stay in her crate and snooze; she will be the happiest girl in the world when you get home and will show you with from her kissing tongue down to her wagging tail.

Coco was found abandoned and we don’t know her young puppy history but recognize training and care were not a part of it. She will need a patient and experienced adopter to continue with her trainer and program as she learns to navigate the world.

We see signs that Coco would someday like to learn to play with other dogs, but that will be tested in time when she has progressed further. She can meet new people, but she needs introductions in very small settings where she feels safe and is with her loved ones. She did pass her initial cat test and an additional would be required for cohabitating.

Applications from experienced Connecticut adopters in quiet single family settings are welcomed and we can’t wait to see Coco in her very own loyal loving home.
