Need a new cuddle buddy? Then you need Cola in your life!

Sweet Cola just wants all the love you can give her.  She has a soft and submissive temperament.  She enjoys leisurely walks and sniff adventures.  She always has her nose to the ground. She is very responsive to correction and is eager to please.  Cola would be a great dog for a first-time dog owner, but would also be an easy addition to an already existing pack.

Cola loves her dog foster brother.  Her foster mom affectionally calls her a  little lump because she is so mellow.  When Cola’s foster brother doesn’t want to play with her she just rolls around on the floor with the toys and entertains herself.   

Cola is still working on her potty training.  Her foster mom keeps her in an exercise pen at night and when she is at work during the day and Cola is able to hold it. However, when she is let out she isn’t sure where to go yet even when her foster mom takes her outside, but she is working on it.  

Cola will go into a crate for feeding time but really does not like to be locked in for long.  She does better in an exercise pen.

Even though Cola is 10 months she acts younger and will sometimes whimper and whine for attention. She can definitely benefit from puppy training classes to help build her confidence.

We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Cola is a sweet love bug just waiting for her forever family!
