A little bit of fetch here, a little bit of running around the yard there, and a whole lot of cuddling up in between makes every day with Chucho just as great as the last! This handsome boy is exactly what you need to brighten up your home with a big pitty grin.

Chucho has perfect home manners. He has been living it up in foster and would easily adjust into his forever home. He loves to play in the backyard, rolling around in the grass and people watching from afar. Even inside, Chucho loves to play around with his toys, shaking them everywhere and enjoying a bit of catch with his treats. He has learned it's just as important to enjoy the downtime as well. He's a world-class cuddler who loves to be around people and meet new friends. If you're still asleep he's sure to nuzzle up to you for some belly rubs. And he's a house-trained boy who naps around the house when his foster is away.

Chucho could fit well into a wide range of homes and is sure to be a bright spot in any home. you are sure to fall in love when you see his sweet brown eyes and trademark big grin. Who wouldn't want to start each day being greeted by that? Meet this handsome boy today! See more about Chucho on Instagram: @emilygindler.
