United States, CT, 6 Years, Coco

Coco is a full bred Australian Shepherd blue merle. She is probably the most loving dog I have ever had. She is in good health and weighs about 34 pounds and just had her full physical with a clean bill of health. She is however on the Royal Canin S/O diet.

I had to move in the midst of Covid due to unforeseen circumstances and my life had changed significantly. We are now living in the only apartment I could find at the time, which is a 500 square foot studio. Coco has not adapted well. She truly needs a backyard to run around in and I’m not able to provide her with that. Also, she doesn’t deal well with any neighbors walking past our apartment all of the time.

I’m hoping to find a loving home for her where she can live her life to the fullest. She does better without other dogs but is extremely loving with people.

I would love to have an open adoption where I can still see her or at least stay in contact. She had been an amazing part of my life but as I have said with unforeseen circumstances I believe she would be better off living with someone who has a home and can spend the quality time with her that she truly deserves.

Hi, your notes for Coco go back to February but just found this site and it's probably too late. I'm in Colorado with the best 14-ish year old adopted miniature Australian at 26 pounds. Still runs like a rabbit so he could definitely keep up with your six-year-old. This breed is the best -- and I Blue is with me everywhere I go -- and we are outside in the Rockies every day for hour-long walks and off-leash runs at a huge park.

I am interested in learning more about Coco to determine if my home would be a good match for her. However, I am not sure as to how to proceed in a more private/secure manner with personal information. Please advise. Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.
