Cocoa Working Lakeland DofB 01.03.17 Thame Oxon

Post by xxlynne »

Current Status: Homed
Cocoa's Story: Cocoa was advertised at 5 months old having grown up with toddler twins and owner wasn't coping. In her next family she did well but she is a terrier to her paw tips and some family members don't have confidence in her management. Cocoa is not for young children. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Cocoa is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Cocoa was in boarding kennels near Guildford whilst awaiting her new family.

Notes from ex family:" Cocoa was not socialised before we got her - from what I gather she stayed in the home with two small children and wasn't taken out for walks. As a result Cocoa can be nervous of new or unexpected experiences although she has improved a lot in the year that we've had her.
Cocoa loves going in water. She loves chasing tennis balls (although she isn't very good at giving them back) and playing tug of war with a frisbee. Cocoa is quite a chewer and needs to be watched with any chewable objects. She is confined to our kitchen/utilityroom when unsupervised. She is allowed in the living room if supervised. She will jump up and steal objects from the edge of kitchen counters but has got better at giving them back as she has got older. Cocoa will sometimes chew her bedding too - only when we're in the house as a way of attention seeking from what I can tell.
Cocoa regularly is left for 3 to 4 hours on her own and is very good - she settles down to sleep. She has been left 8 to 9 hours on a small number of occasions and has been fine with that too."

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Cocoa's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: Family called and wanted Cocoa to go into an experienced terrier family who 'get her' and enjoy her terrier ways.

I found Cocoa having a great time in the paddock with Beth yesterday. Beth said all she wanted to do was play.

Cocoa is az amazing little dog!
First time she met me she was just happy with a bit of fuss and quite easy to harness too, so we were out on our walk in no time. Once out and about she was a typical terrier, very busy sniffing every inch of the path and every bush :-)
She absolutely loved the paddock and chasing tennis balls, her only dilemma was how to fit all the balls into her mouth :-))
Smashing girl, an amazing little addition to any household ❤️

Tennis balls and water - Cocoa’s in heaven. She’s a little monkey and had me chasing her around the paddling pool to put her lead on to take her back to her kennel. I don’t blame her- she was enjoying herself.

Witty, warm and fun-loving Working Lakeland lady – attractive, interesting and outdoorsy looking for easy-going, affectionate and playful hooman. Should like walkies, comfortable clothes and going on little adventures. A fondness for tennis balls and water is a plus as is an inquisitive and exploratory spirit – and enough self-indulgence to enjoy spending rainy days in bed.

Star sign:

A lady never tells
(but since you are reading my profile and might want to know: I am just 2.5 years old)

Water paddling and deep-sea diving for my 2nd love which is tennis balls

Looking for:
A hooman that will give me my forever home and that I can love even more than my favourite things in the world (see above)

Cocoa is a genuine little character full of beans who just loves spending time in your company and going out to explore the world with you. Even better if this involves water or tennis balls - or both! Our favourite game is bobbing for chewed-up tennis balls saving them from drowning in the paddling pool and arranging them neatly on the floor next to it.
Despite living in kennels Cocoa is such a tremendously joyful little creature, she will bring a smile to your face even on the most miserable of days. I absolutely adore her and really hope her forever home is just around the corner! :crossfingers.gif:

Walked this tiny bundle of joy yesterday, she's adorable Kiss of love.gif
She was so easy to harness, so excited to be out, bounding along, darting here and there to follow up interesting scent. We broke into a bit of a run and she kept looking up at me so happy and eager, made my heart melt.
On the way back she was pulling along in a hurry to get back to kennels, thought it odd as she was so enjoying herself - then when she hung a left once inside the gate, realised it was because she was desperate to get to the paddock so she could play! I had no tennis balls to hand, but she made the most of a big soggy football innards and she dumped it into the paddling pool, leapt in it after it, then invited me to chase her round the paddock for alternate chase and tug of war
She really didn't want to leave the fun and go back to her kennel. Hope this little cutie gets her forever home soon, they'll be very lucky people! Kiss of love.gif

Sue and Paul travelled to their appointment with a warm mug of Cocoa! Well not a mug but she had the same sensation and wonderment effect. MrsP will share all
