When Queso looks at you with his big sweet eyes and cuddles in your lap, begging for attention, you have to oblige. How could you ever say no to this sweet guy? Watching him toss toys to himself and squeak them happily will melt your heart. He loves to entertain himself, but this lively fella loves plenty of walks, as well as lots of toys and enrichment activities to work his brain and keep him engaged.

This affectionate boy loves to be near you, sleeping beside your desk while you work or hanging out near you while you cook. He also does well on his own and loves to be outside, watching people and dogs. He has eager tail-wags and excitement when he sees other dogs in the dog park. He seems like he'll be the life of the party once he can meet some doggo friends. He's a very energetic, playful boy who loves squeaky toys, Nylabone, hide-the-treats toys and frozen Kongs. A smart boy, he has almost mastered "sit and is sure to learn other tricks quickly. He does very well alone at home for hours and is well house-trained.

This funny, smart, goofy, sweet, playful pup is ready to find someone who can match his energy, give him new adventures, keep him engaged, and give him all the love and affection he craves. He'll give you so much love and happiness in return. 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 Queso. He'll steal your heart, and you'll never have a sad moment with this little love.

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
