Pet of the Week: Coco

Summer is nearly here – and our Pet of the Week Coco is ready for some outdoor fun with you!

This young German Shepherd/Akita mix is energetic, playful, and loving – so he’s one of our “Rambunctious Red” pets. Coco is a very smart dog who is learning how to “sit.” Though Coco may come off as seeming uninterested, he simply needs some time to warm up before being your best friend. Given his boundless energy, Coco would do best with lots of exercise as well as brain games such as puzzle feeders to tire him out.

His caregivers at the Pet Adoption Center have observed that Coco doesn’t get along with other dogs, so he would need to be an “only pet.” Coco is also still learning his manners, so he would need a home that can help him learn to be the best dog he can be! Coco has a spirit of adventure, so a home with a fully fenced yard would make the ideal match.

Are you interested in having a new companion? Coco is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption comes with a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. As Pet of the Week, Coco’s adoption fee has been waived, though a pet license fee may still be required.

Visit Coco or other furry friends on our website at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet. We continue to do Adoptions by Appointment, so make a reservation online or contact RASKC with questions at 206-296-7387 (PETS) or pets@kingcounty.gov.
