Cocoa's Story

If you looked up the definition of “Best Friends” in the dictionary, you may just see a photo of Cocoa and Rascal!  They are best pals and looking to find their third musketeer who will whisk them off their paws and show them what it feels like to be loved unconditionally!  This dynamic duo was adopted into a home for three months and returned when their owners felt they were not a good fit for their household.  Cocoa and Rascal have stuck together through thick and thin and have a bond that can never be broken!  They adore each other so much and are hoping to spread the love to their new forever home!  These cuties can be a bit shy and timid around strangers, and would do best with someone who will be patient and understanding and give them the time they need to adjust.  Once they become comfortable, Cocoa and Rascal turn into sweet and loving gentleman who want nothing more than to be by their people 24/7!

Cocoa and Rascal are searching for a quiet home with an experienced owner and without young children.  They enjoying spending time with their people so much that they do not like to be left alone for long periods of time.  These cuties would do best with a family who is home throughout the day and can give them all the love and affection their tiny hearts desire!  Both Cocoa and Rascal enjoy doing everything together including going for walks, napping, going for a nice car ride, and playing fetch until the sun goes down!  They absolutely adore each other and they’re probably the most ridiculously cute bonded pair PAWS has ever seen!   Twice the dogs equal twice the amount of love, tail wags, and slobbery kisses you’ll receive if you choose to add these handsome boys to your family!  Their adorable curly coats and sweet faces are sure to reel you in and make you fall head over heels for this pair of best buds.  If you feel like you could open your heart and home to these adorable boys, then come out and meet them today!
