Dogs for Sale! Dogs for Sale!

OK, not for sale, but just for free adoption to a loving home!

This is a wonderful dog in need of a good home if you or anyone you know if looking for a sweet and loving companion.Chocolate is a boxer/yellow lab mix. He is about 8 years old and incredibly sweet and mellow. He is a gentle dog and about 55 lbs. He has been very docile around small kids and has little active interest in other dogs or cats. He mostly likes to lie on his bed - especially with someone around - have his tummy rubbed (he'll put his paw on your arm if you stop in the most endearing way!), and go for walks. He has been in the kennel for awhile, so he isn't in the best physical shape, but his tail couldn't go faster when you're getting ready to take him for a stroll. He is house-broken and obedient, though he isn't great yet on formal commands. He walks gently on a leash and mostly just follows at your heels with his tongue lolling.Chocolate was a staff favorite at the Merced shelter, but was about to be put to sleep because he hadn't yet met the right person or family to save him. We are acting as his foster parents on behalf of Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary and want to see this guy get a great permanent home - unfortunately we just aren't around enough to give him all the attention and company he deserves long term.See pictures of him in action!Chocolate has had a rough life but is so loving! He is ready to be someone's loyal companion. He is such an easy dog - just a quick walk and some love and he's good to go! Please let me know if you'd like more information or you're interesting in meeting him.
