Pet Spotlight: Coco Needs a New Family

by Helen Hartel


To adopt Coco, request A4622827.

Coco is a female Lhasa Apso that is approximately six-and-a-half years old. She was a privileged member of her previous family and slept on her owner’s bed. Sadly, her owner died and though loved by all other family members, none were able to take her in.

This dog is showing evidence of fear and anxiety when left alone in her kennel but if approached slowly, perks up when she is with staff, volunteers or shelter visitors. She is waiting for a loving person or family to come walking in and adopt her. Could that be you?

Here are some things you should know about her:

  • She is an indoor dog that is house-trained.
  • She is good on leash.
  • She has advanced obedience skills.
  • She is the perfect size for an apartment, condo or house.
  • She led a fairly quiet life and is reserved, so she is cautious with new people.
  • If you have another dog at home, please bring him or her in for an intro before just taking her home because she is choosy which dogs she is comfortable with.

She is experiencing a problem with one eye, but a nonprofit group has taken her to a private vet and the corneal ulceration is being treated. While she is living at the shelter, the nonprofit will fund the surgery if her eye needs removal. But, other than that, she is in great health and will need very little.

She will make a great companion for someone who leads a quieter lifestyle and looking for a new BFF. To adopt Coco, request A4622827. The Agoura Shelter is at 29525, Agoura Road in Agoura Hills. Occasionally, pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit
