Coffee (A133250) returns! "Is it really her? Really, REALLY?" It's pretty rare when the arrival of a pup causes such a stir — but those of us who have worked at Animal Services for 9 years or more were downright giddy to see her again.

Coffee has always been a super special girl. She first came to us in 2012 when she was just a youngster and her shenanigans won over volunteers and staff alike. She was unabashedly herself and her mischievous self was adopted and returned more than once.

Despite the drama that Ms. Coffee seemed to stir up during a time when we were taking in over 10,000 animals a year — we all fell in love with her and were tickled to pieces when she got adopted in 2013 for good. Then, just a little over a week ago, Coffee returned to us as a 12 year old stray and her original adopter could not be found.

She is MORE beautiful than she was when we last saw her — if that's even possible. She's sweeter than ever, although she's a little bumpier, lumpier, chunkier (66 VERY overweight pounds) and lunkier. She's got a bit of arthritis, but slow bones keep her out of trouble.

She is confident, good with other pups, adorable and in need of a comfortable, soft place to spend the rest of her years. Senior pets are the best. This girl promises to bring you so much joy. You don't want to miss out on this girl.
