Meet Coco / LouLou

A dog for your dog! Her name has changed as much as her life has. Coco came to us just shy of a year. She was 11 months old, very pregnant and underweight. It was very clear that her interactions with humans hadn't been positive until she was rescued. Her foster family are soccer fans and decided to name her Lou and her pups City pups. So now Lou, still very pregnant with a warm clean bed waited about 5 days in her foster home to have 10 puppies! She delivered 10 healthy puppies and let her new humans help her and start gaining her trust. Lou was such a great mom. She was attentive and made sure her pups were healthy and so happy. Because she was the best mama, "Mama is the name that stuck the most and is her nickname in her foster home. So now Mama, after giving birth to 10 beautiful babies, watching them all go to loving homes is ready to find her forever home.

Mama Lou has worked so hard to learn how to be a dog. She is great about stretching the limits of her comfort zone to meet new people and learn new things.
Lou's foster family consists of 2 human parents, 2 adult children, her 12 year old boy, a crawling tiny human that visits often, 2 other dogs, a bearded dragon and a fish. She loves her four legged foster siblings. She is great with all sizes of dogs once she learns her boundaries and place in the pack. She seems to gravitate towards being the more submissive pack member. She loves playing with the other dogs in the home and has really relied on them to show her the ropes of dogging. They love to play chase and roughhouse. She likes to tease her playmates with their favorite toy to get them riled up. As much as she loves roughhousing, she lives to snuggle with her pack when it's time to relax. She's good at reading the room when it's time to settle.
Lou is a medium energy dog who loves to run and play in her fenced backyard, does great walking on a leash by herself or on a double lead with another dog sibling. She is fairly non-reactive on walks when strangers or dogs are nearby. As much as she loves to run and play, Mama Lou is in her happy place at bedtime. She loves snuggling with her humans and other dogs. She loves sleeping in bed and being a couch potato on the weekends. She is learning "sit and "back.

Lou is not a huge barker on her own but she is a copy cat so if other dogs are barking she will too. She is very polite with visitors. When there is just too much excitement in the house, she will politely excuse herself and go hang out in her kennel.
Lou is not a fan of loud bangs, swinging bats or any large, long swinging object for that matter.

She likes chewing on bones, loves snacks, she is housebroken and currently has a pretty lenient potty schedule. She is in a kennel during the day for about 5 hours with an occasional lunch break mid-day to stretch her legs.

Lou would do best in a home with another dog. She would love a dog to run and play with. Lou would prefer a furever home with patient pawrents that are willing to take it slow with getting to know each other. She currently loves a 12 year old boy but isn't a fan of him swinging bats! She would prefer humans that are old enough to know dog manners and are gentle and loving. She tolerates the tiny crawling human that visits often but doesn't go out of her way to be too playful with that size human.

This beautiful girl is now almost 2 years old and ready for her forever home. If you and your dog are interested in finding out more about her, please apply at: https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/ITMD/Dog
Coco/Lou's adoption fee is $295
