The thing about Coco is, she's fussy.  She has some chihuahua-tude, but perhaps if you met her and heard her reasons, you'd give her a chance.  She's a little over 9 years old now and has been with us since October of 2018, after her owner turned her in claiming landlord issues.  We later found out the Coco lived in an abusive situation, along with some other dogs that were suffering as well.  Coco is defensive, and understandably so, but once you meet her a few times and she fully trusts you, no one will love you more than Coco!  She bonds intently with her friends and is overjoyed to be showered with affection by them.  Although Coco lived with other dogs, she doesn't seem to like them much now.  This could change, with several meet and greets with a dog her size.  She will need a home with no cats though, and no young kids.  Coco is so incredibly deserving of a wonderful home to spend the rest of her life in.  Please meet her a few times, and give her a chance.  File#28562  10/3/18
