Adoptable Medium Up-to-date with routine shots

SEEKING RESCUE OR QUIET, RELAXED FOSTER HOME FOR THIS GAL ~ CoCo has been with us for 7 months. She arrived at our shelter with her most recent litter of pups (her pups were literally drug out from under a porch in order to save them; they have since been adopted). CoCo came from a home where she received little attention so she has trust issues when you first meet her. Several volunteers have dedicated time working with her to gain her trust. Over the past months, CoCo has learned to walk well on leash, be petted, and also brushed and bathed. She had an adult son that also came from the same home. He was adopted and is thriving in his new home. With some TLC, she can gain your trust too and acclimate to a new environment. CoCo merely needs a consistent, daily routine with positive reinforcement (more than we can provide as volunteers on a daily basis). We feel she can continue to progress because she is a smart gal and is highly motivated by moist food/treats. We’d love to find a rescue or patient foster home where she can continue to blossom into the dog she’s meant to be. She’s motherly toward some dogs but doesn’t always welcome the behavior of others. CoCo weighs approximately 25-30 lbs. Currently, we do not recommend a home with children under 12 yrs of age, but due to her motherly nature, we believe she can eventually adapt to any loving environment. CoCo has been vaccinated and is scheduled to be spayed. No more puppies in this gal’s future! Please contact us for more info!

For FOSTER OR ADOPTION inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

We are always in need of donations to help care for our dogs. Please email us at for info regarding brands we try to consistently feed our adult dogs and puppies. If you can assist financially, please mail a check payable to Taylor County Humane Society at PO Box 4045, Grafton WV 26354. Or visit our website to donate via PayPal.
