Cocoa Puff – ADOPTED!!

Posted Dec 28, 2013 at 3:50 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!    This cute little girl’s official ResQ name is “Cocoa Puff,” but her foster dad kept calling her “Sweetie,” and it stuck.  Oh, well.  “Sweetie” is a good name for this sweet little girl.  She is between 1 and 2 years of age, and weighs 12 – 13 pounds.  She is a very pretty chocolate and white girl, with a full tail that is constantly in motion.  She loves everyone she meets.  Sweetie is very happy sleeping in a crate, but will gladly cuddle with you during the cold winter weather if you will let her.  And she is the perfect size for a lap dog!  We believe she would be better with children over 5 or 6, because she likes to mouth your hands when she is playing.  She also jumps up with her front feet on bare legs, which would not be good around very young children.  Other than this puppy-type behavior, she is perfect in her foster home.  She is house trained and loves her crate, sometimes preferring to sleep in her crate.  She is quiet and doesn’t bark much at all, just the perfect little lady in every way.   Cocoa came into ResQ with a severely luxating patella (kneecap) on her right hind leg.  She walked with a very painful and unusual gait, and we knew right away she needed our help.  We are happy to report that after our surgeon saw her and corrected the problem, she is running and playing on all four legs in no pain, and her recovery has been 100% complete.  This little girl can do a major rat run!  She loves to play with toys, and makes everyone smile with her happy personality.  Don’t you need a little “Sweetie” in your life to make you smile?  Visit her album for more photos:
