Meet our pal COQUI! Coming all the way from the Dominican this handsome lad is quite the romantic, adoring those long walks on the beach with a few zoomies here and there as soon as his paws hit the sand! Ever the curious pup he takes some time adjusting to his surroundings and learns quickly aiming to please his human companions. This dude has a medium energy level and we think two longer walks or even a jog during the day would work best as he’s got to get out the zoomies somehow! His furever home should expect to continue developing his confidence and trust in relation to socializing with other dogs in quiet spaces, only having had some interactions with them. He’d love to have a playful doggy friend, which would also encourage him to become more confident and step out of his shell with regular playtime. Cats will be totally new creatures for COQUI to interact with though he’s already won over the hearts of older children. COQUI will do well meeting adult humans with slow, proper intros in the great outdoors. This will help to build trust between COQUI and his fam and eventually he’ll know that his furever home will only ever bring safe, equally cool people into the home. He’s also working on leash training with his current foster and does well on a shorter leash. As you get to know COQUI, you’ll see he is very affectionate and doesn’t totally love it when he’s left by his lonesome in his crate even if he is happy to sleep in it while you’re around. He may test out some serenading when it’s time for you to leave. Working on calming exercises and feeding him in his crate will help this pooch combat his (un)romantic ways!
