Mocha is an old soul who just wants to love her people and be loved. Her body shows signs of a hard life lived, but she has nothing but love and compassion to give. She is the definition of a companion!

All she wants to do is lay around, relax, and cuddle. She is completely crate-trained, potty trained (can even hold it for up to 10 hours), house trained, walks great on a leash, doesn't need much exercise at all, and is a master at taking naps!

She is perfectly fine living in an apartment, as long as it doesn't require too many stairs. Her greetings at the door are world class. She has a cute little hop with her two front legs but never manages to get very far from the ground. She likes slow mornings and will usually choose to stay in bed until she knows she is about to go outside. She gets along with friendly dogs, but is definitely more of a people pleaser. We think she would do well with kids as well, as she loves everyone she meets. Mocha is truly the sweetest pup with a heart of pure gold. She is looking for her forever family, her person, and a place to call her forever home.
