I might not see sandy beaches when I look at Bocachica but rather a female version of a Teddy Bear.. She is really one sweet and huggable doggy girl who loves to be close to her caretaker, ask for the lap and of course treats. Bocachica is very furry and chunky. She very much needs a stop by the groomer who will transform her into the cutest gal on earth. A good walker she is, not forgetting to do her business on the way. Other pooches are not an issue for her. She did come with a friend, Chex, as their owner could not take care of her pets anymore. Like Chex, Bocachica will make(and probably was) a very loving, affectionate , tender and low key four legged best friend. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center and take her home.
