PET OF THE WEEK | Coco is an intelligent pup who likes to learn

Coco is an affectionate female American Staffy seeking a mature family who are experienced with her breed.

The 15-month-old, who has a gorgeous dark brown and blue coat, loves to play fetch, adores her toys and will happily come and sit for snuggles with you.

An intelligent pup, Coco likes to please and learns things quickly so with treats on hand it should be a breeze when training her further.

As a large breed dog she will jump up and be pushy if not instructed firmly to "sit", so she will need someone who can confidently control and be committed to training her.

She will also need a home with secure colorbond fencing and no cats or pocket pets either.

As Pet of the Week, Coco's adoption fee is just $150 (usually $368). This includes microchipping, desexing, vaccination, flea treatment, worming and lifetime NSW registration.
