DOG OF THE WEEK - Help Coco Find His Forever Home

This 2-year old Pomeranian/Pekingese mix is looking for his forever home. Will it be yours?

Coco is a 2-year-old Pomeranian/Pekingese mix. He is a beautiful chocolate color and is about 9 pounds. Coco came from a puppy mill where he was used to breed other dogs of his same or mixed breed. He lived most of his life in a wire crate with no human contact, no toys and very little food.

Despite coming from a breeding facility, Coco is very loving and outgoing. He is very friendly with all people and other dogs. Coco loves children and cats, too. He is neutered and up-to-date with vaccinations.

For more information on Coco or any of the other dogs available through Home for Good Dog Rescue, visit the Home For Good Dog Rescue website, call (908) 598-8212 or email contacthfg@gmail.com. If you are considering adopting Coco or one of the other Home for Good dogs, please complete an online application at www.homeforgooddogs.org. A pre-approved application is required for all “meet and greets” and adoptions.

I'm a New Providence resident who loves animals, especially dogs. But I have a real problem with this specific animal rescue organization. Very unprofessional group and I would think twice about adopting an animal from them.
