Meet Mocha

Meet Mocha! Mocha and her litter of puppies ended up in a rural Alabama shelter, before they all came to Wisconsin, to become Underdogs. She’s about 5-years-old and 63-pounds. She is about the sweetest dog you'll ever meet! This girl is very calm but quite shy, affectionate, and loves snuggling up with her humans for belly-rubs. You can usually find her cuddled up on the couch and will hear her big tail start to wag as soon as you walk in the room. Mocha is a wonderful momma, but is very ready to be an empty-nester! She is great with cats and may do well with older children. She would be happiest in a home without other dogs. She’s a sweet, loving dog, but is a little shy and will need someone willing to do some socialization and training with her, Mocha will be available for adoption after 4/18/19.

Update 4/6/19, Mocha unfortunately tested positive for heartworm disease. She got this by being bitten by an infected mosquito. She is not contagious to other dogs (but all dogs should be on heartworm prevention monthly, year-round to prevent infection/reinfection). Underdog has started Mocha on treatment for heartworm, and with proper after-care, she will fully recover. Her adopter will simply need to bring Mocha to scheduled treatment appointments and keep her CALM (with strict crate rest or supervised relaxation) post treatment injections (for 2-3 months). We provide adopters with instructions and will cover needed meds. Dogs who are treated for heartworm have a positive likelihood of recovery when post-treatment instructions and rest are followed.
