Mathis came to APA with his puppy siblings. All of the others have found homes, so now we're looking for a family to bring home this promising youngster! Mathis is biding his time in an APA foster home where he is learning the skills he'll need to join his forever family.

Mathis currently lives with all types of animals - dogs, cats, horses, chickens and anything in-between. He does great with all of them! But most of all he loves hanging out with people - whether they are adults or children, he loves to be around everybody. He is already walking well on leash. Mathis goes on daily walks and loves to swim in the lake.

Mathis already does well in his crate, and in the house alone for limited lengths of time. As he gets older he should get better and better. He is learning his basic commands. Mathis knows "sit, "down, and he'll wait for you to ask him to come inside the house. His house training has been coming along great as well.

We think Mathis would do well in most any type of home. Whether in a family or a single person, as the only dog or sharing a home with other pets, Mathis should thrive as long as he continues to receive leadership, activity, and affection. He is a people-pleaser who loves to interact with all. This pup will bring smiles and fun to your house for years to come! And remember, you won't just be giving Mathis a good home, you'll also be helping another dog join us at APA!

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.
