Coconut was transferred from a rescue in West Texas to GaDaH. Coconut is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, lepto, heartworm and tick disease tested negative, is on monthly flea/tick/heartworm prevention, microchipped and at the time of soay surgery on 4 June weighed 9.20 pounds. She has an estimated date of birth of 12 november 2018 and we believe was used as a breeding dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
Coconut is a sweet girl who is confident living with dogs of all ages and sizes. She is less tolerent with pups and is quick to put them in their place, but only when they are getting irritating to her. She lives in the house with lots of dogs from puppies up to 120 pound German Shepherds and has no problems, living, eating, drinking and socializing with them all.
She is very loving and affectionate and would benefit from a family that will share her love, cuddles and snuggles, but also be relatively active and take her on walks and adventures so she can explore the world and all of its smells, sights and sounds.
We are looking for a family that is familiar with small breed dogs and their potential health issues so that they know what to expect. She is active and so does need to go on walks and runs, just having a back yard to play in is not enough.
Coconut has access to a large enclosed in area, which is accessed through a dog door, but there are also pee pads down which she will sometimes ues. We are not able to say if she is house-trained other than that, so we expect families to be prepared to work on housetraining whilst he transitions to his new home, life and family.
We have not seen Coconut around cats, livestock or children, so we expect families to take precautions when introducing her to new things. Her personality does not leave any concern as to her not being friendly with children, as long as they give her space, respect her and not treat her like their toy!
