  • Animal ID#: A191911
  • Dog Name: Mocha
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age:
  • This soft boy is absolutely terrified at the shelter, and is now in a foster home where he continues to build confidence and is much happier boy. When you get low to the ground, he will approach very gently with a light tail wag – it’s darling! He is lovely on leash and very much enjoys going for walks, during which he steers clear of dogs and people. He prefers to be your only dog. Mocha is thriving in his foster home and it has been reported that he is a lovely house guest!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
