Would you love to take your dog with you everywhere you go? Then Quark is your boy! This very sweet, easygoing boy loves car rides. When he gets home, he's happy to throw his stuffed animals around and run with them in the backyard, jumping like a deer. Then he basks in the sun with his bully stick.

When Quark comes inside, he'll want to snuggle in your lap and sleep like a toddler. He's pretty sure he's a lap dog. Now in foster care, this happy boy is very family oriented. He loves getting affection from everyone, including new people he meets. He's a sweetie with kids in his foster family, doing very little jumping, and he's friendly to their cat.

He is a great leash-walker and enjoys pausing to sniff things. At home, he understands "sit and listens nicely to "no. He's house-trained and is happy to stay in his crate, doing well when his fosters are away. After an active day, he likes to go to bed about 9 p.m., then wakes up when his fosters do.

Quark is the well-behaved boy who will be perfect for a family with kids. He'll especially love it if they're home with him a lot. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. Offer him a car ride and he'll follow you home.
Come meet your new best friend

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.
