Coco – 7-8 year old female Chihuahua

Coco is a seven and a half year old female Chihuahua, who arrived at Mayhew due to her owner’s ill health. Coco is a sensitive girl, she gets along well with calm people but can be reactive with some strangers i.e. joggers or people who suddenly appear and startle her. She’s also fearful of other dogs and will run at them barking in an attempt to warn them off. With people she knows and trusts she is extremely affectionate and loves nothing more than sitting on your lap soaking up all the attention.

GREAT NEWS! This Dog Has Now Been Rehomed
Thanks to good people like yourself who use on a daily basis, this dog has now found a new, permanent loving home. There are more dogs still looking though…

Coco is looking for a home in a quiet semi-rural or rural area where she can be exercised without coming across too many strangers and other dogs. Her new owner will need to be experienced with dogs and be able to work on her reactive behaviour around other dogs and work with a dog trainer.

She can live with sensible teenagers from sixteen years of age and upwards providing they have lived with dogs before. She wouldn’t be suitable for a household with visiting young children and she’ll need to be the only pet in the home. She’ll need a home where someone is at home with her during the day and she’ll need direct access to a private garden. She wouldn’t be suitable to live in a flat. She has luxating patellas grade 2 out of 4.

Coco has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and is up to date with flea & worm treatment. She has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed.
