Rescue Dog of the Week

Hi, I’m Mocha and I am an approximately 2 year old pit/lab mix. I am a trim, chocolate, dainty girl with the most beautiful eyes that will melt your soul. I love to snuggle, give kisses, go for car rides and go on hikes. I also enjoy playing with my stuffy toys and chewing on bones and my most favorite, being close to my people. I’m a very smart girl and love to learn new things! I know some basic commands such as sit, stay and down and want to learn more. I am completely housebroken and am great in a home. I have some energy and will occasionally do zoomies and chase balls but I also love being close and taking naps with you and snuggling together. I need more work on the leash because I do pull a little bit, but a harness helps a lot with that.

I do need you to understand something about me…..I can’t remember everything from my past, but I do know that it wasn’t that great and I have some trust issues. It takes me a bit of time to warm up to new people and I may get a little snappy at first if you go too fast. So all I ask is that you give me a little time, love, and patience (oh, and yummy treats!!) to help me trust you. And once I have given you my trust, it’s yours 100% and I’m going to love you with my whole heart and soul. (And it really doesn’t take all that long for me to warm up to you!) I have made quite a few friends at Eleventh Hour Rescue, and I’m so loving and affectionate and I just want to please and be close to the ones I love.

The best home for me would be a less active home since I am at first leery of strangers and I would prefer no small children or any animals at this time. My volunteer friends are working on that with me but for now a single person or couple would be ideal. Maybe an older, respectful child would be ok. Other than that, I really am a good girl and I’ve been waiting over a year for a home of my own so I hope I find my fur-ever home real soon.

Mocha is available for adoption from Eleventh Hour Rescue in Randolph, New Jersey. You can read more about Mocha on her Facebook page.
