#2986 Coco

ID #: 2986 Age: 2 yrs Gender: male Status: available

Hi everyone my name is Coco and I’m a two-year-old boy (I know, I know…the name Coco for a boy???).  When I first came to Golden Rescue, I was very cautious of people I didn’t know and other dogs.  I have come a long way since then.  I’m still cautious with new people but I warm up quickly with almost every human I meet.  I’m still nervous and aggressive around other dogs.  Even that is getting better but I need a lot more work in that area.  In the meantime, it would be better if I had a big backyard to play in and didn’t go for walks where I would encounter a lot of dogs.  My trainer could help you with this part of my education but it needs time, patience, and love…and even then, I may never love other dogs but maybe I’ll learn to tolerate them.  It’ll be a work-in-progress indeed.  Other than that, I’m very lovable, smart, playful, calm, and easy going.  I’m not afraid of loud noises.  I like being touched…especially belly rubs.  I love the car and can be left alone if you have to go out.  I’m not a big barker unless I see a dog.  For now, because I have been under-socialized, I would be better with an adult family with no dogs or children.  You have to be my ‘alpha’ and help me learn everything else I need to learn.  I’ll get there for sure ~ I just need some understanding, patience, and love.  I promise I’ll give it back to you tenfold.

Coco is currently being fostered in the Newmarket, ON area. If you would like more information about Coco please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
