They can typically tolerate some rude behavior from other dogs and can be described as having a long fuse. They show relaxed, appropriate, easy-going body language around others. The Behavior Department recommends that Coco B be placed in a home with a dog that matches her calm energy level. PLAYGROUP: According to Coco B’s previous owner, Coco B has been around other dogs and plays gently with them. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Coco B was initially nervous and sensitive to other dogs greeting her.

Energy level is fairly low, dog is calm and solicitious even in arousing environments.
