Available Dogs - Chocolate Pudding

Choco - Seven months

Hi! I'm Chocolate Pudding, or Choco for short. I am essentially a black and white golden girl at heart. Just look at my ears!!  I like to know where my foster mom is at all times and I love to snuggle. I really love laying on the couch in the evening next to you while you watch tv. And I love my toys!  Chasing balls and sticks and chewing on my nylabones. I love these bones so much and I also love a good peanut butter kong.

I'm a bit feisty but I am a still a puppy. Good news is I'm super food driven so I'm very trainable. I know sit, down, stay, leave it.  My foster mom tells me to "stay" at the top of the stairs now and when she reaches the bottom she says "ok" so I don't barrel into anybody as they come down. She also tells me to stay at the door when we go for walks so she can go first and then she says "ok" then I go out and join her. I also know "leave it" she will put a treat next to my paw and I will leave it until she says "ok".. it's hard, but I do it :-) Oh, and I sleep all night in my crate quietly!

I love my foster brother but he's older and doesn't enjoy me always in his space.  I would do great in a home with another young dog that loves to play and wrestle, or as an only dog home with an outdoorsy family. Kids older than 10 would probably be best.
