My story

Hi, my name is Chocolate! I am available for Adoption -

Age 4 years

Size/Weight medium/52lbs

You might recognize me from my debut on WGN with my doggy friend, Gemma! Take one look at my golden-brown eyes, one-up/one-down ears, and beautiful, swirly, cocoa-colored coat, and you know I’m a special girl with lots of love to give. I was running loose until a nice family found me but unfortunately couldn't keep me. I hope I can find a family as wonderful as them... maybe that’s you!

My favorite activity is playing with my rubber squeaky toys!

What I already know how to do: 
Commands and tricks such as sit, stay, and wait
Go into my crate on command (I’d love to show you)
Play, walk nicely and be patient with most dogs (I like big dogs but small dogs aren’t my thing)
Walk nicely (sometimes I pull at first, but once I settle I am a nice walker)
Loving my two-legged friends. I love to be right next to them
My dream home: 
No cats 
Only medium to large doggy friends (small dogs aren't my thing)
A loving, understanding family who will love me just as much as I love them (and also give me scritches)!
Someone to go on long walks and fun adventures with me. Bonus points for every car ride we go on.
Bones to chew on
What I need help with: 
Continuing my training-I love to learn! Especially if food is involved
I am prey driven so I need mental games and toys to get out that urge

I’ve already been spayed and microchipped and have had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines. My adoption fee is $300. For more information or if you would like to meet me, please fill out an adoption survey at

Our adoption facility hours and location can be found on our website.

Additional adoption info

See our process and policies on our website. Our fees include a full medical exam by a veterinarian. This includes a Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) test for cats, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, deworming and Spay/Neuter. Dogs receive a Heartworm Check, Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, Canine Flu Vaccine, deworming, and Kennel Cough preventative. Our modest adoption fees do not cover the procedures and vet work that we provide the animals. We fundraise to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that C.A.R.E. is aware of are explained fully, (including daily medicine costs), to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.
