I've found my furever family!


We're happy to tell you that Mocha has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Hello, I’m Mocha. I have an adorable brindle coat with lots of white markings, including a little white tip on my tail that will curl. My foster mom is always telling me how pretty I am! I love to be with my people and the other foster dog in the house. My favorite place is following my foster mom around the house or curling up by her while she works from home.   

I am working on potty training, and have a great teacher in the other foster dog that has taught me the ropes. Given my size I still need to go out frequently but I have not had any recent accidents in the house. My foster mom is very proud how quickly I have caught on to being potty trained. Soon I will be able to ask when I need to go out. Since I love to be with my people, I am still learning that my kennel is my safe space. I am learning to settle in my kennel more quickly each day but this is a work in process for me. At night I sleep in my kennel – mostly. Sometimes my foster mom lets me sleep with her after my early morning potty break. I love it when I get to snuggle with her for a couple of hours or for naps.

I already know how to “sit” and play fetch! I am learning to “leave it” and how to walk nicely on a leash (there are so many interesting smells so I don’t always walk in straight lines yet). Since I am just a wee one, I would benefit from obedience training. My foster mom thinks I am really smart and that I pick up things quickly from watching the older foster dog. Therefore, I would love to learn more and bond with my new forever family through obedience training. I love praise from my foster mom and I am happy to do tricks for treats!

I haven’t met any kids yet but know I would love them! Since I am young, I am still mouthy and my tiny puppy teeth are sharp. I currently live with a 2-year-old female foster dog that I really look up to. I love when she plays with me and lets me snuggle with her. I am a very playful and tenacious puppy. I will be submissive with my foster sister if we play too hard or if I push her too much, as I am learning boundaries. I love to chase blowing leaves in the yard, chasing my foster sister and playing fetch with my penguin ball. I have gotten really good and bringing the ball back to my foster mom! I am also really good at checking in and coming back to my foster mom as I explore the yard.  

Some Other Fun Facts About Me:
Play all day or cuddles and snoozes?
I love to play hard and take walks for a couple of hours each day to drain my energy so I can cuddle and take a long nap.

Give me a description of your dream forever family.
I would love to live with an active family that will channel my energy with activities like playing fetch and going for walks. My interests will grow as I grow up. I love people being around and since I am learning to be crate trained, I would love a family that is home to take me out regularly. Could this be you?
