Hello, my name is Coco. I've been a one-owner dog for all my 10 years until my owner was not able to care for me anymore. Luckily I found my way to SBRET and did not end up in a shelter. I am a handsome male chocolate and tan Chihuahua and I weigh about 9 pounds, which is less then when I came into rescue but I still need to lose 2-3 more pounds. I do great with my housetraining and do not have accidents in my foster home. I am just the snuggliest little dude and love to sit and cuddle on your lap. I am a wonderful companion! I even tolerate those baths my foster mom gives me! Sadly due to the fact no one took care of my teeth I did lose all of them during my dental. I am feeling much better without all those rotten teeth and eat just fine!
I like to go out and walk on a leash and I get along with other dogs. Because of my age I probably would not do well in a house with small children and would enjoy a home with someone home during the day. I do have a heart murmur that will need to be monitored with your vet but I am not on any medication for it and getting some more weight off will help. I have a collapsing trachea but that usually only affects me when I get really excited and I may cough for just a minute. Overall I am just a happy little dude! I have been neutered, microchipped, and am up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $100.
