Shy guy Choco is ready for his adoption debut! This sweet little 1 year old scruffy terrier mix with the cutest little underbite, weighs under 20 pounds and is very likely done growing.  Choco was found on the streets of Texas with a pack of dogs and had been living there for about a week.  We don’t know what his situation had been before he was found, but we sure are glad our Texas friends were able to help him and the other pups find better lives.  

Sweet Choco has been in Wisconsin for a little over a week now and has been settling in at his own pace.  He will need a patient family that will let him come out of shell on his own time, and would greatly benefit from a confident resident dog to help show him the ropes. He does well with dogs of all shapes and sizes and is friendly in the face of many dog personalities whether they are high energy, or mellow.  Choco has not been around cats and has only been around kids in their teenage years.  

He can be easily spooked by sudden movements or loud noises so would do best in a home with a more quiet environment and children over the age of 14. Choco is the type of dog that is a flight risk and would require a securely fenced in yard in his forever home to keep him safe.  He is still mastering the art of kennel training but does keep his kennel free of potty accidents, and does much better when he is near other dogs during his kennel time.  It would be important for him to continue to learn that his kennel is a safe space and for his adopters to keep working with him on it! His foster mom has a camera set up in his kennel area to talk to him if he is showing signs of stress which has helped him a lot too! He is mostly potty trained but like any young dog, should be monitored in the home, and let out at a consistent schedule to eliminate accidents. 

Although he does take a little bit of time to warm up to strangers, once he trusts his people, he is the biggest snuggle bug!  His favorite activity by far is snuggling up to his humans on the couch and watching your favorite show.  Choco also loves laying outside in the sun, and romping around with his doggie friends in the yard at his foster home.  He is working on his leash training and continuing to get more comfortable and confident on walks and on his leash! He has been working on his recall and making progress on that too! Chico doesn’t make much noise but will sometimes bark when new people approach the home.

This little guy is smart, sweet, and eager to learn and please his humans.  If you are in the market for a timid little guy that loves to snuggle and is loyal to his humans, Choco is the pup for you!
