Shih Tzu/Poodle Mix
Coqui was an extraordinary case for us. She was left at the shelter to die like so many others. But as she waited a dog in the next cage managed to bite off the majority of her tail!
It was heartbreaking enough to see a perfectly healthy puppy on death row but to have her so badly injured and in need of medical care was devastating. After 4 days of endless calls and emails we finally reached out to the head of ACC wondering why this dog was not being released. It ended up being a case of miscommunication but it helped us develop an even better relationship with ACC in NYC.
Coqui couldn't care less about her tail once we got her. She is a pure puppy. All she wants to do is play in the yard, learn new tricks and get lots of belly rubs.
She was even featured on Fox Business with Dr. Brett from V.E.R.G.
