Cocoa is a active, fun 5 year old female Chocolate Lab. She finds herself at the humane society with another dog because their former owner could no longer afford to keep them. Cocoa's former owner said that she is house-trained and crate-trained and her former owner had her live outside during the day (in a dog house) with her friend, a Boxer named Mynski. She may not want to be outside during the day and she most likely would want to be inside with a loving person or family. Not that she doesn't enjoy the outdoors, going for walks, hikes and running in the woods! She is used to a family with kids and is fine with other dogs however we always recommend that you bring your dog to meet any dog you may be interested in adopting so that they can be sure to get along.Now, more about Cocoa. She is a busy gal who gets excited to meet her people pals but in a few minutes calms right down. She has had obedience training and knows the commands, sit, stay, down. off and come. She loves swimming at the lake too. Now when you come and meet her, you will see that she is a bit plump! No worries, she's a great dog and with the right type of person or family who will spend time with her, walking, playing fetch, going for hikes and a monitored meal plan (cutting out the people food snacks that she was used to), she will slim right back to her 'girlish figure'! She didn't find herself in a plump condition overnight, so it will be a slow, gradual process. Hey, sounds like a good plan for all of us!!Cocoa is friendly, high-energy, and eager, and is seeking a home with active people who will offer her plenty of physical and mental exercise, and careful management of her diet. A home with another active dog may be a great match. All Cocoa wants is to be a cherished family member.She is up to date with her vaccinations so she is offered at a adoption rate of $105.Like my cute face and want to help? Consider being my sponsor!
