-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER AT THE INFO PROVIDED BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS-

Hi! My name is Coco! I’m a 4yr old Toy Poodle with personality and sass. Most people think I’m a girl, but that’s okay as long as they’re willing to give me treats and belly scritches. 
 
My elderly dog mom recently had to be moved to an assisted care facility. She left me with her son and daughter-in-law until I find another person. They can’t keep me because they have cats I like to chase and growl at, and there’s too much going on in their house.  I need a quiet home. No kids.  No cats. I can be a couch potato cuddling with you or a bouncy playmate. I bond deeply with one person and they are my world.  I like to bark a lot when I’m excited, especially on walks. I walk okay on a leash, but could use some work on reactivity to people, dogs, and animals. 
 
I really like routine. If something changes I’ve been known to potty in the house if left alone.  I get really scared when my people leave me. 
 
I’m a smart guy and love spending time with you getting treats, praise and attention for the silly things you keep asking me to do, like sit. I can also be a problem solver and get into stuff. I love chewing paper, am a great vacuum, and I love it when people leave food unattended.  Jackpot!
 
I like my spa days. I go to the groomer every 8-10 weeks. I need my ears plucked regularly and professional grooming to keep comfortable and healthy.  I’m my groomer’s favorite.  I am also super allergic to flea bites. This means I have to be on flea prevention all year round, preferably oral as topical irritate me. Expenses to consider.  I also need regular dentals under anesthesia about every 18 months. 
 
I can be nippy with strangers especially men. Strangers scare me and always want to pick me up because I’m so cute. I do not like children at all. Especially, kids under high school age. They’re loud and unpredictable.  
 
My foster Dad says to tell you I’m up to date on vaccines, just had my teeth cleaned in April, and am up to date on heartworm and flea prevention.
