Coco is a fun and loving Australian Shepherd/wirehaired Jack Russell Terrier mix who is ready for her forever home. This 2-year-old cutie is a leggy 30 pounds – a great size – and she sports a medium length wirehaired coat with a top knot of blond hair! Coco is housebroken, crate-trained and knows her basic obedience commands. She rides nicely in the car and her leash walking skills are pretty good, although her great enthusiasm to go everywhere and meet everyone means that she will pull on occasion but corrects easily. Coco loves humans of all ages, although her desire to jump for joy means that a family with older children would be best. She also loves dogs of all sizes and shapes, and playing with other dogs is one of her favorite ways to spend her day. We would describe Coco as a medium energy dog with an “off switch”. She loves to play, but when playtime is over, spending the evening on the sofa watching TV with her human family is her idea of a great finish to a great day. Coco also has this thing for blankets – she rolls in them and under them like a puppy – she loves them! And did we mention that she is fine with cats? The ideal home for Coco is an active one, with a person or family who is ready for a super smart, eager to learn, just plain cute companion. Coco has already been introduced to clicker training, so a family who will continue her training would be ideal. She may even make a wonderful nosework or casual agility dog! Another playful dog is a must, and children over the age of 12 would be welcome. And the resident cats have nothing to fear! Coco is just plain cute and ready for her new family. If that’s you, apply today! Coco is fostered near Richmond, VA.
