Marlene may be a puppy, but she's already transitioned so much. She was found as a stray on South Padre Island, brought to APA! and now is in a foster home where her life is flourishing. She LOVES her new humans!

Marlene is constantly smiling when hanging out in the kitchen and living room with her foster mom and dad. She can be slightly hyper with puppy hops and zoomies, but she calms down and loves to nap with mom and dad and get really comfy. Probably the cutest thing is that she loves to sit on their hips like a toddler while they do chores. She really likes being held.

Marlene also loves her toy elephant. She found it at Petco, grabbed it off the shelf and they've been buddies ever since. She's also having fun with her fosters' two cats. The kitties are warming up to her and they all play fetch together.

This friendly, smart girl is very trainable. She already understands "sit and "shake. She's getting used to her crate and is making progress on her house-training. She's very motivated by treats and stuffed chewy bones.

Come meet this lovable girl. Offer to adopt her and she'll be happy to give you a tour of South Padre Island!

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.
