Meet Coco! 

YES! She is INSANELY CUTE! BUT - 

***COCO DOES NOT LIKE NEW PEOPLE.***

**SHE WILL GROWL AND BITE AT NEW PEOPLE.**

*SHE ALSO WILL PEE AND POOP IN THE HOUSE IF SHE FEELS LIKE IT!*
( Especially if you make her mad - she will hold a grudge and you will find pee or poop off the potty pad! )

Are you still reading? Because we are very serious about what is stated above. Coco is a WONDERFUL dog. We love her very, very, VERY much. But she is NOT easy, not even a little bit. 

Coco originally came to us as an owner surrender. She was adopted but lost her human. Now she is back with us once again in search of her forever home, and yes - we had to reintroduce ourselves too! We believe Coco was born in September of 2016 and would do best in a home with adult(s) only. In all honesty - she would do best with one human, that loves her to no end and doesnt have a lot of visitors. Because COCO BITES NEW PEOPLE. Coco currently likes a rough handful of people in the whole wide world, but once she does like someone - she is as loyal as they come. She LOVES LOVES LOVES car rides, especially to McDs for french fries! They are the key to her heart! Speaking of her heart - she has a heart condition that requires twice daily medication. It is just one pill morning and night - and hidden in a treat - she will take it no problem. Her heart medication is not expensive. Coco currently uses potty pads while inside ( although sometimes it ends up off the potty pad ), but she will go potty outside too. We think with a more set routine she may do better, but we can not say if she will ever fully potty train or not. Coco is also a VERY picky eater. She changes what she wants to eat every few days, but is very food / treat motivated! Coco could live with other animals if necessary - but she feels the same about other animals as she does people. It takes her a long time to adjust and she would much prefer to be the queen of your heart! Coco is looking for a patient human that could be her very best friend.

Coco is hard. BUT Coco is so very, very worth it. 


All pets adopted from the Humane Society of Freeborn County will have age appropriate vaccinations, testing, alterations and micro chips included in their adoption fee! Fill out an app at www.freeborncountyhs.org. 

We do allow home trials with our dogs or cats to approved applicants. This is how we make sure your new family member is the perfect fit. We ask that you allow at least a month for your new pet to adjust to their new home. They will need that time to decompress. During this time we will provide counseling to ensure a successful transition.

Please review the basic adoption requirements listed on our site before applying. We take finding the right homes for our critters very seriously as they deserve nothing but the best! Please allow a week for applications to be processed.
If listed as (Currently in Foster) - these pets are not at our facility but are in foster care homes. They are available for adoption. Meet and greets are available with approved applicants only. 

If you have any questions feel free to send us an email at freeborncohumanesociety@gmail.com. Dont forget to check us out on Facebook!
