Bisque is the sweetest puppy ever! He loves attention and will sit in your lap pretty much all day, especially if you're handing out pets and scratches. He's actually pretty calm for a puppy, and is content hanging out with you, chewing on his toys. He's a cuddler and will snuggle right up to you.

Bisque loves his fosters' resident dogs and is so happy to be part of a pack. He doesn't mind the kitty friends, either! He's fine with squirrels and mice outside, as well. Bisque loves to go for walks and does very well on a leash. He goes slow and won't dart at small animals. He is gentle enough that a kid could walk him! He is kennel-trained and will only whine/bark for about 10 minutes. Then he'll settle in and lay down. He can be left alone for 3-4 hours in a kennel. He's also almost potty-trained and has had hardly any accidents recently!

Seriously, Bisque is the perfect puppy, and would fit well in almost any home. He's very low-maintenance, and just wants to bring joy to your life. He's going to grow up to be such a great dog. He is so excited to meet you!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
