Never miss a local story.
Cocoa, who has a smudge of white on her chest, arrived at the shelter in 2011 as a stray. She tends to be a bit shy and nervous around new people, so she’s often overlooked on adoption day. But once she gets to know you, Cocoa is quite loving and affectionate. She loves to snuggle next to you and enjoys forehead and tummy rubs. Cocoa probably needs a fairly quiet and calm atmosphere, so she’d do best in a home without younger children.

Breed: Australian cattle dog/blue heeler
Dillon is an extremely intelligent, handsome and alert boy — ready for any activity, be it work or play. He loves people, but so far he’s not done well with other dogs. Cattle dogs are fantastic companions for those who hike, run, or want to otherwise keep active and have their dog with them. He also appears to be housebroken.
