His head tilt makes me very happy – he's looking at you like, "Please take me home, I'll love you forever!" Koko has a happy spirited mindset that will keep your heart warm all of the time. Koko is a very high-energy dog that will require an active family who can keep him occupied with a daily walk or hike. Staff believes he would do best with older children because of his size and energy. If you want to make him a member of your family, see him here!

Melanie, 4
