Once a stray dog, Coco suffered from skin problems due to malnutrition. Fortunately, she was rescued by a kind-hearted citizen and sent to an animal hospital. Her skin problem cured, Coco remained for a time in the hospital, waiting for a warm home to welcome her. Still waiting, Coco was eventually brought to PACK Taiwan.
Coco is a quiet and calm girl. She enjoys being alone and most of the time, might show just a fixed expression on her face. But don’t think Coco’s just a homebody— she enjoys being outside! When you put her on the leash and take her out for a walk, she will instantly be full of energy. In fact, she won’t be able to stop smiling when on a walk with you. Not only is she a good partner at home, but also for outdoor activities!
Coco likes going for walks, but at home she prefers quiet time by herself.
A bit shy, Coco won’t go out of her way to seek out other people or dogs.
Though not extremely attached to people, Coco is generally an obedient, cooperative, independent dog.
Takes a bit longer to get used to strangers, other dogs, and some noises.
Coco is easily startled, and her reaction will show only through her facial expression; there is no excessive physical reaction. If you don’t have time to pay much attention to her, she won’t make a fuss and will simply go to sleep obediently and enjoy time by herself. When you bring her out for a walk, Coco will remain quiet and simply follow you around at your own pace. Because she tends to match your walking speed, walking is quite a pleasure – you won’t have to worry about it becoming a tug of war or a chase!
All of PACK's dogs are vaccinated annually, dewormed monthly and receive flea and tick medication quarterly. Every dog is spayed/neutered upon arrival at PACK HQ.
Coco has no health issues that we are aware of.
