Carisle, PA – Hello! My name is Coco (my foster mom calls me Arlo). I’m a 2 year old male Havanese/terrier mix who was saved May 16th from NYCs high kill shelter. I’m 19 lbs. of love & terrier charm and I have something most other terrier mixes don’t….beautiful, long, wavy hair that’s a stunning apricot and white. I had to get shaved due to the detriments of living on the streets for so long, but just you wait and see how gorgeous it is! I love to fetch a ball. I walk nicely on a leash too. It’s taken some time for the dogs I live with to warm up to me because I can be a little intense still (well this is all new to me!), however I have gotten along with every dog I’ve met. The cat I live with gets me excited, but I haven’t done anything to hurt him.

I also love to be close to my foster mom and I’m learning new things all the time. Its really been building up my confidence. Will you be the one to continue teaching me what love and living off the streets is? I got a late start in life so I’ve been learning my manners and people are my friends. I’ve come a long way, baby! I love car rides too and I’m a very good boy about them. I’m doing great with clicker training. Now I understand what it is my foster mom is teaching me. What else is great about me lately is I’ve been good with no messes in the house, just please remember to take me out when I need.

I haven’t chewed or shredded anything in the home I’ve been staying in. I make a good little watch dog too. I’ll be excited to see you when you come home and in a little time, I’ll settle right down next to you, ready to enjoy the time we have together. I really hope you consider learning more about me and maybe even taking me home to help me grow into a wonderful member of your family I know I can be. I’m not sure I’m ready for small children yet, but with some more leadership and emotional growth, I can get there. I’ve been well on my way in a short time, and with your help, I can make it across the finish line. Thank you for reading my bio. I look forward to meeting you. Happy tails!

PS I am neutered, up to date on shots and chipped.
