AKC Name: Laurie and Joe’s Labs Coco Chanel, CGC
AKC Number: SS26794902
Coco was born here at Laurie and Joe’s Labs from the litter of Midnight and Duke. Coco has an interesting story as she initially left here as an ESA prospect. While she showed human focused traits during her puppy evaluation and immediately put her paw on the arm of the human she was intended to be an ESA for, the strength of that connection ended up saving that person’s life. Upon going to her intended home, Coco refused to eat or drink. Her new human developed an excruciating headache, was hospitalized, and diagnosed with a life threatening condition requiring surgery. Coco was more intuitive than anyone imagined and we believe that she could sense that this person was more ill than anyone imagined.
Coco ended up coming back to us within 24 hours of going to her new home because of change in her new owner’s health condition. We had originally intended to keep a puppy from this pairing for our program but didn’t initially because we had a smaller litter and a long waiting list.
We felt like we were given a second chance with Coco which we couldn’t pass up. We performed preliminary health testing which she passed with flying colors. Coco has started her basic obedience training where she shows a strong desire to please and receives many compliments from her instructors.
We often tell people that the puppy who is returned is often the pick of the litter.
