Hi, I'm Cocoa

Status: adopted

About Cocoa

Cocoa is a 10 month old, black and rust, natural eared and docked female.  She has a great personality, very sweet and loves to play.  She loves other dogs and lots of toys.  Cocoa is very loving and will seek out your attention. 

She is a treat hound and will follow you anywhere for a treat.  She needs some work on her manners as she will counter surf and occasionally jump up on you but she has been learning that behavior doesn’t get her what she wants. 

She has been gradually learning to sit quietly for her dinner, wait at the door before bolting outside and listening when her name is called as she gets distracted easily. 

When a very young dog, she did go thru some training and being a very smart girl, she just needs some positive reinforcement.   

Cocoa must have a fenced yard (no invisible fence) with an owner who will continue to teach her all that she needs to know.
Cocoa needs someone who will just love her.

This is My Story

Cocoa found himself needing DAR&E to find him a new home.

DAR&E only places within the Maryland, DC, West Virginia and Virginia area. Please do no apply to adopt if you live outside of those areas. Please visit our Adoption Process page for additional information on adopting one of our DAR&E Dobermans & an online application!

Our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped.
