My name is Mocha and I may be more cat than dog. While I really enjoy spending time with my humans and getting scritches, I do also like my own space and doing my own thing. I don’t really bark or make a lot of noise, so I would be a good addition for a family with close neighbours.
I am crate-trained and house-trained and will hang out in my crate when I want some alone time. I don’t really play with toys so I often look to my humans for attention, but I can sit, stay, and come when called. When it comes to meeting new people, I prefer to check them out at my own pace and come to them when I’m ready. I am not a fan of a lot of noise or grabbing hands.
I enjoy sunning myself outside in the grass or going for car rides close to home. I like going for walks, but not too far at once, I’m more of a fan of frequent quick walks. My ideal family would be home most of the time with a really quiet household. I just like to chill with my family and am ready to make a great companion to someone special.
Medical note: Mocha was given Pro Heart 12 on DATE, 2021 (this medication protects from heartworm recurrence for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick preventative until MONTH 2022. In MONTH 2022, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round treatment.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
