Swede is the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. This little guy likes to play tug-o-war by himself, with a friend, or with his brother, Belarus. He loves to eat a lot, and race around the yard. And sometimes when he's asleep, his brother likes to sit on him and nip his ear to get him to play.

He will run up to visitors when they enter the room and never seems to get tired of seeing the familiar faces. This puppy has a lot of energy, so prepare your racetrack!

He's still very young, but already getting the hang of some house-training skills, like using a training pad. He's still very new to the world and loves to explore his surroundings, but he hasn't met too many other dogs or cats besides his brother, and is not too experienced on the leash.

An ideal home for Swede will be one with a fenced yard or near a park and patient parents who are able to be home with him and teach him new skills.

This cuddle buddy will make you forget all your worries. Contact us or come in when you're ready to meet Swede!


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.
