She enjoys the simple things in life, like snuggles, snacks, and a cozy place to relax. Cocoa loves being around people and doesn't mind being the center of attention (in fact, she'd appreciate lots of attention, thank you very much). Social distancing isn't really in her vocabulary - she would much rather cuddle up right next to you, and maybe even on your lap. If you're looking for a pup who will enjoy sitting with you while you work or curling up for a good Netflix binge, she would love to meet you! A "no pets on the furniture" policy might not meet with Cocoa's approval, as she really likes sitting on the couch or even a classroom chair - which is where you can often find her during staff lunch time here at HSCC. She may prefer to have all the love to herself in her new home rather than sharing it with other pets, but she has plenty of love to give to her new family.
*Cocoa is currently recovering from a significant knee surgery. She needs to be kept to minimal activity and then gradually work her way up to regular walks over the next several weeks. She will not be able to manage stairs, rough terrain, or long walks at this time.*
