Coacoa is a very sweet, slightly shy 3.5 year old, 45 pound female Shar Pei mix (50% Shar Pei, 25% Am Staffordshire Terrier, and 25% Bulldog/Chesapeake Bay Retriever). She is healthy and has been spayed/ vetted. Due to a "legal battle” (related to a child custody disagreement), she was surrendered by a gentleman who was her loving owner since she was a puppy.

Coacoa had pretty much shut down immediately after her owner left and became very depressed. It took the shelter staff and volunteers a bit of time to get her to open her broken heart to new humans. Now she is giving out doggie kisses! Coacoa walks well on a leash, takes treats very gently, and has no reported behavior issues from her previous owner. Although Coacoa is a volunteer favorite she has gotten overlooked, time and time again, by potential adopters because she tends to bark when kenneled; not understanding why she isn’t just able to hang out with you.
Please come out to meet Coacoa (with her beautiful brown eyes) and let her know she is worthy of a furever loving home with the perfect person or family!
