Looking to adopt a youngster with a ton of potential? Meet Josie. She is learning the ropes in an APA foster home, and she'll soon be ready to bring her fun attitude to your house!

Josie's foster family is helping her grow out of her puppy behaviors. Every day she is learning and growing. With the consistency and leadership she's receiving, she is growing more accustomed to her crate, and generally becoming more mature! And she'd love to continue learning with you.

Although she hasn't interacted with other dogs yet, she seems to have a playful interest in the dogs she sees. She might even like to share a home with another dog. Josie would probably not be a good fit for a home with small children, but older kids would probably love her!

With structure and stability in her life, Josie has all the makings of a fantastic long-term companion. Act early on this deal - if you're looking to ring in the new year with a new four legged friend, Josie fits the bill! And don't forget, when you adopt from APA you'll not only be gaining a pet, you'll also be helping another dog join our foster program.

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!

Come meet your new best friend

Letter from Dr. Jefferson: Together with YOU

As this year comes to a close, I’m in awe of the lifesaving love that you have for dogs and cats who have no other chances to survive.
