Meet sweet Choco! He's a good boy who used to have a hard life because he grew up on the streets as a stray. He survived though and is happy to be in foster care where he has a loving home. He is now the biggest lap dog you'll ever find and he'll always be right by your side.

There are three things Choco loves about life. First, there's nothing better than a nice walk around the neighborhood with his humans. Second, if he hears a squeaky toy, he will do whatever it takes to find it and make it stop squeaking. Third, and mostly importantly, there is nothing he enjoys more than a nice warm bubble bath after a long day of playing. He may seem like a tough guy from the outside but he's really just a sweet boy who enjoys baths, naps and snacks.

Since he moved in with his foster parents, he's learned lots of great skills very quickly. He knows how to sit, stay and come, but most importantly he is potty trained! He will always make sure to take care of business outside and has never had an accident. He is willing to learn new tricks and would love humans who can keep teaching him new things.

Ideally Choco would love to be the only pet in the home because he wants all your head scratches, belly rubs and table scraps to himself. What he's really looking for is a human who will give him a second chance, and show him unconditional love, and let him love back. Come meet Choco, he'll roll over for a belly rub!
