    KoKo is about 5 years old and weighs 12.5 pds. He is considered to be a special needs boy. KoKo has old fractures, one on each side of his pelvis, and his hip joints indicate arthritis or hip dysplasia. In addition, he has a knee cap that slips. All of these issues are not apparent in his ability to get around and run. However, in the future, he may have more issues with any of the conditions listed, and the adopter must have the desire and means to provide any treatment that might be needed.

He loves people a lot, and does not know what a stranger is! KoKo watches everything in his environment, and quickly falls into the routine. KoKo is working on potty training, and is doing very well. He wears a belly band (male diaper to keep him from marking) when he cannot be supervised. KoKo does not bother anything in the home, and seems to enjoy his crate as a sleeping/resting option which he goes into on his own.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Tunisia
    Dogs can make good pets in Tunisia if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Tunisia Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal.
