Update 18th May - We have some great news about Coco! She has now been adopted! Good luck Coco, you deserve your very own forever sofa.
Coco has been with LCH since December 2016. She came in from the pound, having been been used for breeding, and she must have had many litters of pups, as she is now 9 years old. This little lady bears the scars of her past harsh life.
Coco went into foster but somehow the fosterer didn't get the best out of her. She has recently moved to another foster home, where she is really gaining confidence and coming on in leaps and bounds. Her new foster mum is letting her do things in her own time, at her pace, and working things out for herself. She is living with other dogs here, and is happy to have a sniff and lay down with them for a while. Coco likes to have a cuddle on her fosterer's lap too. Her tail wags a lot now, and she looks much happier. In the right environment she has blossomed, and is now a totally different dog. She has had all the necessary surgery and is healing fast.
Coco is a dinky little Staffie, and typically, she likes her cuddles and fuss, but on her terms. She has been a mum to so many over the years, it's time she was spoiled a bit herself, with a large dose of TLC, and a loving forever home.
We will continue to update her progress here with words and photos.
Friday 12th May - Update from Coco's foster mum:
“Coco is a shy older girl, who loves nothing more than to snuggle up next to you, but only for a little while as it can get too much for her. She likes her own space and will take herself off to her bed.
Coco isn't too good with other dogs, if they are bouncy and in her face, she is much better than she was and will tolerate calm male dogs, but only if they leave her alone.
Coco has been fine when out walking with a calm, male dog, she does pull on her lead and she is very strong for a small girl. She is a clean girl in the house and is happy to be left for a couple of hours at a time, loves her food and her treats, but she does need to be reminded to take treats gently .”
