This happy girl is marking a sad milestone. Coco first came to the Humane Society of Broward County around this time last year.

She has been patiently waiting to be adopted by her perfect match for a little over a year now. We can’t understand why this big beauty hasn’t been snatched up. She is currently in the care of a wonderful foster family but foster homes are only temporary and Coco wants nothing more than a place to call her own and a family to love for many years to come. If you can’t adopt, please help spread the word about Coco so she can find her pawrents.

Coco (ID 615024) is a German Shepard mix, she’s about 8-years-old and weighs 85-pounds. As we like to say, it’s not how big you are but how well behaved you are and Coco is the perfect example of that. She’s a good listener and knows sit, lay down, stay and more.

Coco would like a family with a big yard where she can run around to her heart’s content. She loves being outside and soaking up the sun.

Coco is still learning how to be friends with other dogs so she’d prefer to be the only dog for now.

Thanks to J.R. Dunn Jewelers, her adoption fee has been sponsored. If you’re interested in meeting Coco, fill out the adoption application to set up an appointment:

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.
What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s Facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-989-3977.
