Choko Bell, with his irresistible smile and handsome golden coat, wants to be the belle of a lucky person's home.
This loving and loveable boy is a lovebug who quickly warms up to his new human acquaintances, hoping for cuddles and belly rubs - or just the chance to sit by them and soak up lovin'. He gives lots of hugs and kisses, and rubs on his people like a kitten.
Choko Bell is a playful boy who likes to chase balls and play with his squeaky toys, then do zoomies around the play yard. A smart boy, he's curious and loves exploring new territory.
Choko plays well with other dogs and used to live with cats. He also got along with a mini-pig on a play date once. Choko is also crate-trained and responds very well to rewards. He knows sit, down, come, and stay, and answers to his name. He likes learning new tricks and playing games.
He walks well on his leash and is up for adventures on the Lady Bird Lake trail. Choko has high energy and would be perfect as a running buddy on the Austin Boardwalk or for playing catch at Zilker on a warm afternoon.
Choko will be a wonderful addition to an adult-only home, ideally one with a yard to explore. He's more than ready to lavish all that love on his new adoptive parents. Come visit and see if you can be the beneficiary of all that adoration.
All APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And remember, when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
