A British rescue charity intervened when Coco, a Chihuahua mix, was abandoned in a dustbin as a puppy, then taken to a “kill station” to be euthanized. However, the dog lives a more lavish lifestyle than most humans do since being adopted by Justine Coom and Richard Harrison.
Coco now flies around the world by private jet, on expensive holidays with the couple and her dog brother, Harry. The lucky dog has even met Prince Albert of Monaco.
Justine said it was love at first sight. “When I saw a picture of Coco on Facebook, I knew I had to give her a home,” she said. “She was dumped in a roadside bin along with her dog bed and bowl — and was discovered by passers-by.”
Coco was in a poor condition when she was discovered. She was covered in fleas and malnourished before being nursed back to help.
“The charity who were trying to re-home her, The Company of Dogs, had foster carers in Spain who visit the infamous ‘kill stations’ and try to rescue dogs they think will be suitable to re-home,” she said. “It’s where they found Coco — fighting for food amongst 40 other dogs — and took her to a vet to be checked and have her vaccinations.”
At first, Coco was understandably shy when she was first adopted, but the couple showered her with love and affection.
“She was very timid when she arrived, but now, she is completely fearless,” Justine said. “[She] and Harry, who we also rescued, hit it off straight away, and now she even protects him from other big dogs. She isn’t frightened to bark at them.”
The couple plans their holidays around Coco and Harry, who enjoy the lavish trips.
“She is the most grateful little rescue dog in the world and enjoys every second of her life, no matter what she is doing,” Justin said. “She is an inspiration to us all, and we are lucky to have her.”
