Mocha came into a Kentucky shelter as a stray at the end of 2021 and was scheduled to be euthanized due to overcrowding until her foster mom stepped up to save her. She was in rough shape, and her foster mom has nursed her back to health! Mocha is super sweet and gentle, and looking for a forever home to call her own. Our best guess is that she's around 9 or 10 years old.
Her foster mom says she's pretty good on leash and doesn't pull a ton. Mocha sits patiently for treats and takes them gently. She loves to play fetch with tennis balls, until she decides that they're chew toys. Once you earn her trust, she will give you gentle, little kisses or nudge your hands with her snout to ask for petting.
We believe that she would do well with most dogs based on her behavior towards the other two dogs in her foster home. She sniffs them and wags her tail through a baby gate, but due to their medical conditions, Mocha isn't able to have much interaction with them at this time. Mocha is great with her foster mom's goats, so that's also a good sign for her getting along with other friendly dogs. She shows some interest when she sees the feral barn cats outside of her foster home, so her foster mom suggests proceeding with caution on cats.
Mocha has not been around any children since being with the organization, but she does tend to get excitable and "hop" around, so we are strongly recommending a home with kids ages 10+.
Mocha needs to gain a couple more pounds, and she is on Proin for age related bladder leakage and has done great since starting it. She's very good about letting you know she needs to be let out, but can't hold it for a full workday at the moment.
