Cocoa: Did someone say "walk"?

Cocoa was surrendered to Pet Haven along with her canine "sister", Sammy Jo, when their family was going through some changes and could no longer care for the girls. Cocoa is an 8 year old shepherd/lab mix and her foster reports that she is an easy keeper. Cocoa lives with another dog and several cats in her foster home. She is great with the cats -- she basically ignores them. She also enjoys hanging out with her canine foster sister, but she would be fine as an only dog in her adoptive home too.

Cocoa is very mellow in the house, but she LOVES her walks. If you ask her if she wants to go for a walk, she will jump up and head for the door (definitely a girl who will have her new owners spelling w-a-l-k in no time!). She also loves to visit the dog park where she can run and run and run. In the house she will quickly roll over and graciously accept all of the belly rubs you have to give out. Like her sister, Cocoa requests big fluffy dog beds or a spot on the couch and bed in her forever home (can you tell these girls have been well-loved their entire lives?).
