5 yr old male Shiba Inu/Min Pin mix, NO APTS/CONDOS:
The only family Coco has ever known is moving and cannot take him with them. We believe his is likely a Shiba/Miniature Pinscher mix and he is about 17lbs.
Coco has successfully lived with another dog. He would be fine as either an only dog, or with another dog who is not too in his face and gives him his space. He is playful, but respects boundaries, and will let other dogs know when he’s had enough play. He has been tested with cats and reacted well.
Coco has done well living with children as young as 7, and is most bonded to the teenage girl in his current home. Like most Shibas, he is skittish around new people, but will warm up slowly if they let him come to them.
Coco has always had a yard, and is used to having his humans home most of the time. He is not likely to do well in an apartment/condo, and would prefer having someone home more than usual. He is also not a fan of his crate, so needs a home where crating is not a requirement. He is house trained and a well behaved dog.
Coco has been placed in a foster home and is doing well, although we are seeing definite signs that he was severely traumatized by losing his family. He bonded quickly to his foster mom, and does not like to be separated from her. We want to give him plenty of time to get over his abandonment issues and feel confident again before we begin looking at potential forever homes for him. We will post again when we feel he is ready for adoption.
