My Personality

Coco is desperately seeking her forever home! 

Coco came in to us from a busy multi-pet household originally but was unfortunately returned recently due to her behaviour. Due to this, she is now one of our ‘complex’ dogs.  From what we have seen here at the shelter, Coco would benefit from living in a quieter home with limited visitors as she previously found new people entering the home very unsettling, and would react to them, especially men.

Coco loves to be out exploring on her walks and would make a fantastic adventure buddy! With time, Coco would enjoy having doggy friends out and about and will make a wonderful companion for a collie lover! 

Coco loves learning new skills, and is having on-going training here at the shelter to work on re-call, loose lead walking and handling. Coco is very food motivated, meaning that after a good run around, she is a dream to work with and engages very well with her handlers.  

Coco can take time to trust new people, so new owners will need to give her time and space initially to help her settle. Coco can meet new people well if they approach her correctly and they are calm and allow her to say hello in her own time. 

Coco is a massive fan of a toys and would play all day if she could.

Coco has an extreme fear of the vets and will need on-going positive socialisation with vet handling in order to help her be manageable when needing to visit the vets. It would be beneficial for adopters to find a vet willing to assist with this training.

Within time Coco will be a loving and loyal companion but requires an experienced collie owner to help her through her nervous behaviours.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the dog. 

Cannot be rehomed to Southampton or Gosport.

Adoption fee: Minimum donation of £180.
