Hi, my name is Chocolate. I'm a female chocolate Podenco and I'm 6 years old. I'm a small/medium sized dog. I'm 58cm from nose to tail and 37cm tall. I'll be neutered as soon as I've settled in. I'm good with other dogs but the team here are still getting to know me and don't yet know how I get along with cats or children. But I love to meet new friends and I'll be getting socialised with them soon and we'll keep you posted. I've had my vaccinations and have my chip and passport so I'm ready to travel to a new forever home in Spain, or (unless otherwise mentioned) anywhere in Europe.

I have recently been indisposed as I had 10 puppies to feed! I have been living rough for at least 4 years and several times the volunteers at AAR have tried to catch me, but I was too scared. It took me having 10 puppies before they managed to capture me. They took me and my puppies in and gave us a safe place to sleep and I am being given regular food. Looking after the puppies is quite a responsibility and I took those responsibilities very seriously, after all they are my babies.

Now they are older they are moving into foster homes and I have started with my vaccinations and all the stuff I need for me to find a forever home, including some training to help build my confidence in people. I have never lived in a proper home and I know I have a lot to learn, but these guys at AAR are amazing. I am still scared of lots of things that happen so have some way to go so a foster home where someone can spend time with me and help me along my way would be great. If you can bear with me and offer me a forever home when the time is right, I will do my best.

I have started getting much more curious and interactive with the humans here and I like to come up for a scratch under the chin. I have also started going inside a house and the other dogs are brilliant and showing me the ropes. I do love other dogs and love to flirt and play. I’m feeling so much better and my puppies have all gone on to be looked after by other carers and so I can focus on getting my figure back and having fun dog time again! I have also started learning about the lead and although it was a bit scary, I like to try hard and I could take my time learning how to follow it for a treat. I still need to learn more about this strange thing though.
