Meet KoKo! BSR 1097 Open to ALL Approved Applicants!
Hi everyone, my name is Koko and I am active, 10 year old female, 36 lbs, with a tight wavy coat with a small white patch on my chest. I was a sick girl with severe heartworms when I came to BSR, but with lots of love and care, I have finished the heartworm treatments. I love sitting beside my foster mom’s chair with my head in her lap and that’s usually the only time I am still, unless I am sleeping. I love running in the yard exploring. I am very nose driven and highly energetic!
Now that I am free of the heart worms, I am pretty healthy. My senior health panel came back with no issues, my eyes are clear, teeth are in good shape and there is just a little gray on my muzzle. My foster mom says I act physically much younger than my age.
I don’t want to talk about my prior life, but I am pretty starved for affection and human interaction. I adore my foster mom and don’t like sharing her with the other dogs in the house. I look at her with my endearing golden eyes because I am in heaven when she is petting my head. I love to sleep with her and the pack, but I always wait for permission before getting on the bed. I stay in my spot all night and don’t move.
I know how to sit, stay, crate up, and I come flying when my name is called. I learned how to use a doggie door with ease and have never had an accident. I love riding in the car and do well on any trips. My greatest desire and happiness (besides being petted) is smelling out a chipmunk or mole from the deepest hole and trying to dig it out. I never learned to retrieve but I can find anything in or on the ground. It might be fun to learn to do upland flushing! My foster mom says I am extremely smart.
I love to run, run, run, but I am not so great on a leash. My foster mom got me a special harness that is teaching me to walk on a leash. I do like to counter surf, but in reality I am too short to get anything and I respond well to the OFF command. I am good with all people and older children. I am fascinated with cats and enjoy playing with dogs smaller than I am. I am not so good with dogs my size and can be jealous too.
So I guess you can see that I need an active family with a fenced yard, room to run and explore and lots of exercise. I would probably do best as the only dog, or just one other smaller dog who is interested in playing with me. I need a large amount of attention and love, so having my family home most of the time would be great. Like all dogs I do best with a schedule, but I also want to have my free time to “hunt”. Additional training would be fun if it was part of exercise and nose work. Did I tell you my nose is awesome!
Most of all I just want a home and humans where I can belong as part of the family and all family activities, whether trips, playing, snuggling, kids or another dog – anything I can be included in and not be left out or abandoned. My foster mom says I am a great dog and deserve to be loved for the rest of my life.
KoKo is being fostered in Alabama and is Seniors-for-Seniors eligible.
