  Meet Coco!

Coco is a darling, dainty Griff who was left at a shelter when she was less than a year old. NBGR tried to bring her into our program at that time but the shelter felt they could find the right home for this sweet girl. Time passed and a home was found but what happened after Coco was adopted is heartbreaking. When her new family decided they could not keep her, instead of taking her back to the shelter as they were required to do by contract, they gave her to another family, who gave her to another family until she was passed around at least five times. The last family to take Coco realized she needed a home that understands the needs of this breed. Wisely, they contacted the original shelter who told them about NBGR. So, after two long years Coco is finally where she should have started.

Since she has been with her foster mom, Coco has been an excellent house guest. She gets along great with her Griff foster sister and loves to run and play with her and all their toys. Coco is super sweet, adores belly rubs and worming her way through pillows is a joyful adventure. When Coco is happy, not only does her tail start wagging - her whole body wiggles.

Approximately three years old and weighing 8 pounds, Coco needs a home that can give her the love and attention she missed out on. She wants to be with you all the time, sleep in the big bed and share her many kisses for as long as you will hold still. She is leash trained and enjoys going for walks.

Coco is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm negative and on preventative.

Now this tiny girl needs a loving family of her own that she can settle down with who will adore her and never let her go. Her early years started out rough can you make up for lost time and give Coco the happy ending she deserves?

Coco is located in Baton Rouge, LA.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
