Mocha has just come back from the salon, and she is ready to find her new home just in time for summer!
She is a very sweet happy girl, once she’s comfortable with you.
Mocha is very playful and LOVES to play with her toys and people, but she can get possessive with her toys sometimes. We prefer the two toy system with Mocha.
Mocha has a strong hate for feet, if you try to hold her back or nudge her around with your feet she will go after them.
Mocha has many doggy friends here, but she can get very bossy when it comes to her food and bed. She is not suited for small children.
She has been diagnosed with early kidney disease, which is being managed with a special diet right now.
