Chocolate’s new dad has been coming to our PetSmart events. He spotted Chocolate and was reminded of a chocolate lab he had years ago. A visit to Houndhaven came next where dad brought his three dogs to meet her. She did well with them at the shelter and also at their home. It was an easy decision for all and Chocolate joined the family. Dad and his son take their dogs to restaurants with outdoor seating, the farmers market and other outdoor events so Chocolate will have lots of socialization both with humans and dogs. She has already been back to visit us at PetSmart with her new family. Chocolate’s name is now Nova. Her new home is full of dog beds, tennis balls, and soft toys. All of Nova’s favorite things!
