Meet CoCo

Therapy Dog and Life Model

CoCo is a 2 year old Saluki cross Whippet, quite highly strung but full of energy and enquisitive, being so young she can be quite noisey when she wants to be. Although CoCo is quite aloof she is conscious of everything that goes on around her and loves attention from people who she considers friends.

Generally CoCo is quite sociable but doesn't like unexpected loud noises, she's a bit of a whimp that way! Desipite being reserved around strangers Salukis like children so are safe for families to be around and CoCo would probably relish the attention.

CoCo doesn't like chocolate, but really enjoys meaty treats.

As a life model, CoCo would be challenging to draw as she does like to look at what people are doing, but when she is layed out she is pretty much stationary, and as you can see from CoCo's photo, she is a truly stunning dog.
