Grasshopper is ready to bring fun and friendship to your life! This youngster is full of joy and has a great personality that you'll love.

Grasshopper is currently living in an APA foster home where he is learning valuable life skills as well as showing off his winning attitude. So far he has been a great guest. He is calm in the house and does not jump on the furniture or show any destructive habits. He is very happy to sleep in his crate at night or when left alone in the house, and he rarely barks. He is also picking up basic commands.

As a young adult, Grasshopper has energy to burn - but he knows how entertain himself. He loves to run after balls and toys or even a stick, and he is learning to bring them back! He enjoys chew toys of all types, and also loves to chew on his rope toy. But we're also working on his leash manners so that he will be a great walking or running partner for you.

Grasshopper should be primed to move right into your home. He is totally house trained and has not had any accidents. He will hang by the door when he wants out. He is very friendly and will be immediately available if you want to cuddle. And he likes everyone he meets!

We believe Grasshopper is a versatile dog who would fit into a variety of home environments. We promise he'll pay it back by putting smiles on everyone's faces! Grasshopper is always happy, and his mood is infectious. And when you welcome Grasshopper into your family, you'll also be helping the next dog who can join APA's foster program!
