My name is Cocoa. I am about 13 pounds now, but need to gain a pound. I was put in the animal shelter by my owner who said they were moving. I thought I was part of the family! I was there a week and so afraid. All the noise made me wonder what was going on. But, a lady from a rescue group came and she saw right through all that fear. She took me into a room that was quiet and I just jumped and bounced. I was so happy she was there! AND she took me home with her. I jumped right on her couch as if I had always lived there. I thought all the other Pekingese in the house were great, especially her Scooterbug. I followed him all over. (She says he's her therapy dog for the new Pekingese that come there, and she's right-- he told me I was safe there.) I am about two years old. I am a nice boy. I don't like you to pick me up by my middle area, but my foster mom said that was okay-- she would just let me jump on the couch by myself. (Some dogs just don't like to be picked up there- maybe it hurts somehow.) I was neutered and have had all my shots. If you are interested in me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. My adoption fee is $300.00
