Cocoa is a very handsome, playful and happy boy. We believe his mum to be Labrador X He has a gorgeous tri-colour, liver, fawn and white coat and pretty brown eyes. He walks well on the lead and gets on with other dogs. Lovely Cocoa is a very sweet dog who loves to play. He’s quite nervous in unknown situations however, but he walks well on the lead and has been going to the local cafe to learn to cope with the outside world. With time and patience, he will be a lovely family member. Once he gains confidence he will be smashing and we think he will cope better with another dog to give him that confidence. We are looking for a home with another friendly dog for this pup to live with, he isn’t tested with cats, and older children above 12 years

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
