Who's there? It's Knock Knock! This fun-lover is playful even by puppy standards, and she's ready to bring plenty of sunshine your way.

Knock Knock is living in a foster home, sharing space with another dog. She's constantly looking to romp with her housemate, but appropriately goes into play stance and takes correction. She is already getting some practice leash walking. She is curious but does not pursue or fixate on other dogs, regardless of size. She quickly returns her attention to her handler. With additional practice she'll become a great exercise partner for you!

Knock Knock comes with all standard puppy features. She's incredibly cute, sometimes a bit mouthy, and she's progressing with house-training. With consistent leadership and maturity, she'll have everything down in no time. She's already learned to enjoy her crate! And she's picking up basic commands with the help of her foster family.

You can expect plenty of loving once Knock Knock joins your family. She will approach for petting and tummy rubs and loves being in your lap for cuddles - especially with a toy. She likes to meet new people but doesn't jump up when introduced. Although she's not currently living in a home with children, we can't imagine that she wouldn't love kids, too!

This active, smart, confident pup will make a fantastic companion for a lucky family. She'll love a home where she can go hiking and exploring, splashing around in a kiddie pool (especially in this heat!), and playing with her toys. At her age she'll need attention and continued training. She will thrive in a household where she gets lots of interaction from people and other dogs.

Come meet this promising pup! Offer her a belly rub and she'll go knock-knocking at your door!

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.
