Are you looking for a pair of sweet canine companions who truly deserve, and would appreciate, a loving forever home? Meet Coco, a recent arrival at the Coronado Animal Care Facility who came in with her brother Bobo. A Good Samaritan brought both dogs into a San Diego shelter as strays. They had been neglected by their former owner and needed help. Coco and Bobo are now ready for their forever home. Coco is a seven-year-old female Shih Tzu Mix who weighs 11 pounds.
An adorable little lady, Coco appreciates being with her human pals. She loves to snuggle and will follow you around your home as you do your daily chores. Coco walks nicely on her leash, is well behaved and knows the “sit” command. She seems to be house trained and is hypoallergenic.
Coco has been diagnosed with a heart murmur. She has an appointment in early July with a cardiologist to determine the extent of her heart condition. We need more information not only to address this issue, but also to determine how it will affect the anesthesia requirements for her spay surgery and dental treatment. Since we technically cannot proceed with an adoption until she is spayed, but we would like Coco to be in her forever home as soon as possible, we are currently seeking a “foster to adopt” situation for Coco. Her adoption will take place following these appointments. PAWS will manage and pay for her spay surgery, this dental appointment, and the ongoing care for her heart condition. Since Coco has a medical condition and is bonded with Bobo, we would like an experienced dog owner to adopt both dogs. With their cheerful demeanor, these little love bugs will make wonderful companions. Come meet Coco and Bobo today, they deserve a loving forever family!
