ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - ABC Action News works with local shelters to help find homes for dogs every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

This week you have an opportunity to add a little sweetness and warmth to your life with Cocoa. She is a 2-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix with a heart of gold.

According to the American Kennel Club, terriers are intelligent, good-natured dogs who are excellent guardians.

Shelter workers say Cocoa is a beautiful dog with great leash manners.

Thanks to the Pit Project and her Guardian Angel sponsor, Darlene Tennell, Cocoa's adoption fee is only $75. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. You must own your own home to adopt him.
