When we said we would take Legend from the shelter, we were told there was another there. A little girl whose owner turned her in after having her a month. She was afraid Coco Bean would bite her child. So, she put Coco Bean in a crate. I hate crates. I think they have their purpose and they are okay short term, or at night for dogs to sleep in. But, I can't stand for dogs to be put in crates when they aren't convenient to have out-- when owners are at work all day. REALLY, would you want to be locked up with no water or food or ability or move around and play and exercise for hours on end. NO. (I know-- I got myself started on crates-- but they are so misused.)
So, we took Legend AND Coco Bean. She is here in my kitchen, visiting with the dogs at my house.
She looks like a little Cranberry-- you know, my alpha female Peke! But, Coco Bean is nicer. :-)
Here she is with Legend-- he does fine with other dogs, too.
Max and Scooter are checking her out. "She looks like Cranberry, but she's smaller. And she doesn't seem as bossy as Cranberry. We're very confused."
And off they go-- no threat from Coco Bean. And she watches them walk away.
Coco Bean is about 18 months old, very puppy-like. Our vet said she couldn't be any older. She is spayed, house trained, 14 pounds and VERY sweet!! If you are interested in her, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
