Pet of the Week

COLORADO SPRINGS — Meet FOX21’s Pet of the Week, Coqui (pronounced (coe-key)!

Coqui is a five-year-old chihuahua. She came to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) as an owner surrender.

Coqui can “sit” for treats!

She is a little nervous so she will need some patience as she settles into her new home, but once she is comfortable, she will be your best friend!

Coqui’s adoption fee is $200, which includes the voucher for a veterinarian exam, vaccinations, 30 days of pet health insurance, a 1-year dog license, and a microchip.
