Pets of the Week: Duke and Cocoa
Wishing all the loving pet owners, their children, plus fur babies a very happy and joyous time for the Christmas holidays. I know from my seven that the dogs enjoy getting presents. For some a toy, while others love a special run with the owners they love, and they all seem to love a beef bone or pig ear; the bones, of course, last longer.
Two large dogs are featured this week from the adoptable pets available at the Elmore County Humane Shelter in Wetumpka. The first big dog is Duke, a very fitting name for such a big’un.
“Get this,” comments shelter Director Rea Cord, “Duke was originally turned in to us for not being a good watchdog!”
This lovable, obviously friendly boy is 1-and-a-half years old, very sweet, and good with other dogs his size; he’s a bit too boisterous for smaller dogs. Duke is about 60 pounds. Also, be forewarned, he does like to eat chickens, and not the cooked kind. Duke does love toys, so he possibly would enjoy a playful time with a made-for-dogs toy chicken.
The second featured big dog is Cocoa, a 1-year-old female Catahoula/pit looking mix and about 65 pounds. Rea Cord says, “Cocoa is a gorgeous gal indeed.” She is great with dogs her size. However, no smaller dogs, cats or small pets. Cocoa is good with older children, and she is crate trained, but not housebroken. She will do best with an active owner and a large well-fenced yard where she can romp with her fam.
