Chino in Fremont, CA

Meet Cappuccino, also known as Chino! A beautiful 10 year old Blenheim, fluffy 24 pound, neutered male boy. He is a young 10 years old and we want to squish him and kiss him! Chino was brought into rescue when his owner had to relocate and we are so honored we get to shower this amazing boy love and find him his forever family. 

Chino’s Faux Ma says he has been an absolute pleasure to have in her home. He is such a lovable, mellow, good natured boy who deserves a loving safe home full of snuggles. Chino is fully house broken and has never had an accident in his foster home. 

He has been getting along well with his foster sibling who is a 3 year old Cavalier. Day one they were playing! He also got a couple long walks that day and it might have been a little too much fun because Chino shows some pain in hind quarters while going up stairs after such a big day. He did see a Vet “just in case” and they couldn’t find anything wrong with him. There is some history in the past of him “over-doing-it” and he was examined back then too, they found nothing wrong with him then as well. Maybe he get’s a little pinch sometimes when he get’s too much exercise? We aren’t sure but by 3pm the next day he was perfectly fine and has been great since! The irony is, he knows how to use his couch stairs and will walk up them to get into your lap when it’s chill time. He’s so stinking cute going up them we can’t stand it, but we will be looking for a home that is one level just as a precaution. For this reason though, we will be looking for a home with a securely fenced yard and a home that is one level. You will also need to be a home who is OK having couch steps for him and also allow dogs on the furniture. This is how he rolls!

When out for a visit at a friends home, he was exposed to a cat and did not chase or bother her, that’s how good of a boy he is!  

Chino really REALLY likes his FOOD! He has a STRONG appetite and will even whine for more after he’s done. While this super funny we want to keep him from being a chunka-monka, so he will need a home who understands how to keep him on a low calorie diet and will only give healthy treats, an example would be carrots or apple pieces.

Chino gets very excited when his harness and leash are picked up. He loves short walks and loves to explore. He also loves to be petted and be near people. He absolutely loves car rides in his carseat. He will sleep in his bed next to yours and seems to feel content knowing you are near.  

Recently he had a physical check up and he passed with flying colors. His EKG was normal, no heart issues! GO CHINO! His labs were good. The only medical issues that will require daily medicine is he has dry eye. His left eye gets dry so he has a lubricant to be applied when needed for the rest of his life. He got his teeth cleaned, zero extractions! He is a pretty healthy, sweet guy with a healthy beautiful coat. His is deaf but responds to hand signals so well.  

This beautiful, sweet, kind boy is looking for his forever home and will bring much joy to his new family.
