Chokchok was just one of the three dogs owned by Dexie Alcuino that went missing during the fire that lasted at least seven hours, displaced around 600 people, and left one person injured.

Alcuino, one of the fire victims, felt very distraught after her home was gobbled up by the fire. To add to her sorrow, she also lost her three fur babies.

In a social media post Monday night, Alcuino appealed for help in find her missing dogs – Sky, Peachy, and Chokchok – as she also expressed hope that they too escaped the fire and were well and alive.

Unfortunately, at around 6 a.m. on Tuesday, the charred bodies of Sky and Peachy were found inside their burnt house.

But Alcuina failed to find Chokchok’s body, giving her a glimmer of hope that he could still be alive.

Finding Chokchok

This time, Alcuina is again asking for help to find her beloved Chokchok, a brown half-German Shepherd, half-Aspin with a distinct pink dot on his nose.

She said that some of their neighbors saw Chokchok run away from the fire but they failed to catch him.

As of this writing, Alcuina still has no information on Chokchok’s whereabouts. 

In an interview with CDN Digital, Alcuina also expressed concern on Chokchok’s condition, especially with the very hot weather that also affects fur babies.
