Story of Coco,

Coco participated in enlightenment activity
Coco participated in enlightenment activity

Coco is English Cocker Spaniel, and a very sweet girl. When she was less than 1 years old, she came to our association two years before.

Before she comes to our assoiation, she was a pet dog. 

When she was 4 months, she became a member of family in Tokyo from a pet shop.

In Japan it is still very common to buy dogs (almost all dogs are puppy) in pet shops. There are so many pet shops in Japan, and can buy dogs very easily there. As you know, puppies are so sweet, so many buy them without thinking well, like just to buy their dresses. And lastly too many people give up having dogs. Many of such dogs who lost their family suddenly are killed in public health centers. 

This is a too sad story but it often happens in Japan.

Coco was also the victim. When she was just 9 months old, her family decided to give up living with her, and called to our association. They said they want us to be the new family for her. We were so sad to hear that, but decided to approved it.

Coco is very sweet and has very kind charactaristic. But grooming and training was was not enough at that time. She didn't know how to interact with people and other dogs well. It was so hard to train her to therapy dog.

Still she needs training, but a little by litthe, she is becoming a very great therapy dog.

This winter she started to experience enlightenment and fundraising activity on the street. The purpose of this activity is passer-by interact with therapy dogs and feel the importance of them. 

She was great. She was so friendly and could be interacted with so many people. All people who interacted with Coco smiled naturally.

Stiil it is a little bit difficult to participate in animal assisted activity, but we believe in she must be a great therapy dog in near future.
