Adopted March 24th of 2010
When Shoko came to our shelter she was a cute little puppy who soon grew to be a beautiful 50-pound dog. She gained her name, Shoko, due to her chocolate milk color. She was always very gentle mannered and never got involved in tackles with other dogs.
And she was so tame that no one thought she could be a good guard dog. We often thought she would end up spending all her life here at the shelter.As pictures of our dogs spread around the world on the Internet, a suitor in the USA contacted us. The primary preparations for her relocation got done quickly. Shoko was bathed, and housebroken before her long journey to the US. She accepted the leash and learned all the rules of a social life with people quickly.Finally, on Wednesday, March 24th of 2010, we took her the airport for her flight to her new home.
Now, Shoko lives in Oakland, California like the princess that she is the angel who is giving her all the love she deserves. She has been able to impress and amaze everyone with her ability to adapt to her new life and connect with her loving guardian.
Shoko’s new mom sent us a note about her: “She is the smartest, most intuitive dog ever! And acrobatically very talented, a wonderful bouncer. A great guard dog. The most well-mannered dog (without training!). Not one house-breaking mistake since day one! Social and friendly with other dogs, while maintaining healthy boundaries. I call her Chocolat Vesper Street (Vesper for James Bond’s girlfriend, Street because she will always have that in her; a combination of Lady & the Tramp).”
