Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 (Corona) virus, in-person home visits are not possible at this time. Since this is a very important part of finding the best home for our dogs, we are not accepting any applications from first-time pet owners, applicants who have not had a pet in the past 3 years, or applicants who cannot furnish vet records. We hope you understand and that you will consider applying to adopt once restrictions have been lifted.
My name is Coleen, but my foster family calls me CoCo. I was born on February 22 and then my mama, brother and I were taken to the shelter when I was 3 weeks old. Fortunately the nice people at DFW Cocker Spaniel Rescue took us in and we’ve been with a foster family since we were 5 weeks old.
I am not Cocker Spaniel and there doesn’t seem to be any cocker in me. My mama is a 40 pound retriever mix and nobody seems to know what my daddy was, but I am going to be around 70 pounds when I’m full grown (at least according to the Google calculator our foster mama found).
I am puppy and I love to play!!! My foster mama says I’m very smart and mischievous, and I definitely take the alpha role when I’m with my brother. My brother and I have been staying in a playpen when we’re not outside and/or being supervised, but I figured out how to climb out and chew through the plastic roof so our foster daddy attached a baby gate across the top of it to keep us confined. Like I said, I am puppy! I rarely have accidents in the playpen anymore, but I am far from being house trained. I do my business as soon as I get outside, but I’ll also do it inside if you’re not watching me.
Our foster family has 2 kids and I love them, but I don’t know yet that I shouldn’t nibble on them (or anyone else) and my baby teeth are very sharp. I also like to chase the other dogs in the house, but they don’t want much to do with my brother and me except steal our food. I am ready to find my forever home, but whoever adopts me must agree to get me spayed when I’m 6 months old. By the way, as you can see from my picture, I am beautiful!
