Meet Cocoa Puff, our Mass Appeal Pet of the Week!

Mass Appeal

Name: Cocoa Puff 
Breed:  Shih Tzu
Age:    7 years
Sex:     Female
Color:  Brown/Black 

Cocoa Puff is a Grade A cuddle buddy.  She really loves to have a person to follow around and gaze at adoringly.  If you’ve got a lap, she’s got your heart.  Cocoa Puff is house trained and rides great in the car.  She walks nicely on a leash.  She has a medical condition that requires that she eat several small meals a day of canned food, so she should live with a person or family who can provide that.  Our adoption staff can fully explain her needs in that regard.   Cocoa also lost her right eye from an injury a year ago, but that doesn’t slow her down at all.  Cocoa is not meant to live with kids, but she can live with other pets (she’s currently in foster with 4 other dogs and 2 cats), as long as you and your pets can handle a side of sass now and again from this girl.  Come meet her at our Springfield Adoption Center.
