Biography

Coco is a 4 year old lab-mix that we adopted from the Ross County Humane Society (near Chillicothe, OH) We rescued her when she was 10 weeks old, as she was part of a litter that was surrendered.

Unfortunately, due to our schedules, we are hardly ever home during the week or weekends ... and she is just simply not getting the attention she needs and deserves.

She is a very active and playful dog … but she is our only dog, and I truly believe she would be better of in an environment with other dogs. Currently she is about 60lbs and is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaxes.
She knows a few basic commands such as sit, down and paw. She is crate trained, house trained, and very intelligent (can be stubborn too). We have a fenced in back yard where she does spend a lot of time, but if we are home, she usually prefers to be inside with us.

While she does love attention, and loves to play, she can get a bit aggressive at times (likely to her, she's still playing). She’s fast and she’s strong, so if she’s running around a yard I would advise against small children trying to “play” with her. She loves her rawhide bones and playing fetch/catch. She really is a good dog, and I just wish we had more time in our schedule to attend to her attention needs. She does love going for walks, but I have needed to use a Gentle-Leader collar to keep her from pulling. The excitement gets to her I guess.

While she's had some interaction with other dogs, I wouldn't say a whole lot. But from what I've seen, she loves other dogs. We've never had any issues at a dog park. Adults seem to have no issue at all with her, but I would caution against babies, toddlers and young children whom she doesn't know.

*** Please Read - Full disclosure here ***

The reason I caution against babies / toddlers / young children is because we have experienced multiple situations where Coco has jumped and nipped at kid’s faces. From what I can tell, these would be considered “warning nips” … as these were kids unfamiliar to her, and who tried to pet her on top of her head. I have never seen her do this to any of my kids or kids she has known for years. These were kids brand new to her during social settings. While I do not believe she’s an aggressive or “bad” dog … I wanted to be very transparent about her nature towards young children getting in her face. Perhaps training and/or more attention would help with these situations.

I am more than happy to discuss these situations if any further details are needed.

If there are any other questions please let me know. Medical records are easily available too.
