Coco, this adorable six-month-old terrier mix Mutt-i-gree®, was rescued from an overcrowded California municipal shelter in October 2013. North Shore Animal League America brought Coco to the safety of our no-kill campus in Port Washington, New York to save him from likely euthanasia.
The precious puppy suffers from incontinence and bowel trouble, which a neurologist determined was most likely due to an injury rather than a congenital defect. Since he can’t fully empty his bladder, Coco has an occasional small accident, so he wears diapers, but they don’t seem to bother him at all. Simply rubbing his stomach will help him move his bowels.
These issues will not prevent Coco from having a full, happy and healthy life, but he will require lifelong care. His delightful nature won over his foster mom, Tammy, who has been lovingly caring for Coco until we can find him the right adopter to take him home to be forever cherished. Coco and Buddy, his foster brother, have become fast friends and play beautifully together. Buddy already taught Coco how to climb stairs. Tammy believes whoever adopts Coco is going to be blessed with a loyal, loving dog.
North Shore Animal League America is happy to provide Coco with all the necessary care he needs and gladly welcomes him into the Sponsor Program. With the help of generous monthly Sponsors like you, Coco will live a wonderful life.
