Thank you Yudikaitis Family!
Cocoa was born about September 2, 2016 and will top out about 55 lbs. She is simply, stunningly, gorgeous!! Although we first listed Cocoa as a Husky/Chocolate Lab mix her DNA was done and she’s 12.5% of each of these breeds: Australian Shepherd, Weimaraner, Chow Chow, Whippet, Border Collies and the remaining 37.5% is a mish mash of all sorts of things. Perhaps her personality is a bit understandable as a few of the listed breeds can be a bit on the more difficult side. Speaking of difficult…Cocoa has just failed her second home. There was another fun dog and she wouldn’t play with the dog and would sometimes decide to start fights. Cocoa was also said to be aloof to the humans. We are told if they were all in the yard she would be on the other side of the humans and if they went to that side of the yard she’s go to the other side – sure wish I could understand this one. One thing I can say for sure about this girl is that she is smart! So, Cocoa arrived back and everyone was glad to see her. She jumped all over us and then ran toward the door of the house and wanted in. In she went and was immediately greeted by another problem dog out in the world – Chloe the Pyr mix that failed adoptions miserably twice so she now lives her as a sanctuary JR dog. Cocoa and Chloe recognize each other immediately and they both puff up and growl. I tell them both to knock it off and they said ‘ok’ and Cocoa ran out back for a nice run through the woods. Back she comes about a half hour later, she runs in the house and I took the one photo, of this ridiculous wild eyed dog, of her telling me how happy she was to be back – I think you’ll agree. It’s wonderful so many dogs are so happy here, but I tell them they can’t all live her forever that although 8 fenced acres, a pond, woods, and 24/7 house access may be ideal it is not most dog’s reality and it’s very similar to us humans going on nice vacations – we can’t live like that forever either. So, here Cocoa lays on the couch with us, loves to wander out back with us and at all these times there are at least a couple dozen dogs all around us and her and there are no problems. We don’t understand so I decided just to lay it all out there and she is welcome to stay here as long as she needs, but she is so young it seems like there should be an appropriate home out there somewhere. It seems she may need to live as an only dog, but can be around other dogs fine. She has too much interest in cats to live with any. What Cocoa loves to do in life is chase birds from tree to tree and will need a physical fenced yard and does require much outside time. She rides beautifully in the car. Cocoa is house trained. She is fine around the children she has met.
