Another success story from shelter to superstar! Coco found herself alone at Fulton County Animal Services in Georgia. However, her life would soon take a huge turn. She was adopted specifically to fill a small role in the Hulu movie, “Prey”. However, because of her charisma and scene stealing natural skills, that role soon grew into the lead character’s 4-legged protective companion. Coco has now taken the movie industry and Internet by storm! She’s won the hearts of all who meet her on press tours, along with the show’s cast and crew. Coco is another reminder that there’s nothing shelter dogs can’t do. They just need a chance! ❤️

Oh my goodness! Love this story! Could you provide me a contact to reach out to to further discuss this story? I’m with FOX5.

She's beautiful and I hope who ever had adopted her actually protects and looks after her. Hollywood isn't kind to animals

Hey! It’s me, Cha Cha! Check it out! I have an awesome new family! I’m so excited. How cool is that? This really awesome person sponsored my adoption fee but you know what my new family did? The day after they adopted me we all cMontgomery @mocohumane and they made a donation too. Yes, that’s right! They are the best hoomans ever. Not only that, they’ve had dogs like me before. Sometimes, people are afraid of my breed and I really don’t understand why. We have so many great things about us! All you have to do is to get to know us a little better, and give us some training, if we need it, and we can be some of the best dogs around. I’m so glad they already knew that. Guess what? I also have a nice big backyard to run around in. Yippee! 🎉 I’m so thankful for everyone sharing my stories, photos, and videos. It really helps us find our forever homes. Well, it’s almost time for dinner. My favorite time of the day. 😄 It’s been great to spend time wi#adoptdontshopr#letsbehumanetogether!#mocohumane #pitties#pittiesofinstagrame#adoptapittiee#pitbullso#pitbullsofinstagramt#welovepitbulls##adoptionstoryp#goinghomeitbullsofinstagram #welovepitbulls #adoptionstory #goinghome ...

When we decided to adopt again, we went with a cat instead of a kitten. We love her! Hope this mama gets adopted soon.

Here is part 2 of my snuggle session with this sweet kitty! She’s also very playful.

😻💗

She’s so cute. She loves those head scratches.
