Cocoa is a sweet female poodle dog staying at Thistle Hill.
Cocoa gets along well with other dogs. Thistle Hill, however, wants to place her in a home without small children. Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she is spayed.
Here's more about Cocoa:
Cocoa is initially shy, but once she realizes you aren't going to hurt her, she's quite sweet. She would do best in an adult home with an experienced adopter. The vet did note that she has some dermatitis, which might be the result of being shaved down or might be bacterial, which would need to be addressed medically.
