If you have some soft treats and a tennis ball, Swiss Cheese will become your best friend! Swiss Cheese is a happy puppy who loves to cuddle, play with toys and explore the outside world.

Swiss Cheese walks well on a leash and is mostly house-trained. Inside the house, she relaxes and naps easily while her foster mom works from home. While Swiss Cheese loves being with people, she is fine to be left alone during the day and crated overnight. She is working on "sit" and coming when called.

Swiss Cheese was found in the countryside as a puppy with a broken jaw. She cannot open her jaw all of the way but fortunately, she does not appear to be in any pain. Now that she's safe in a foster home, Swiss Cheese is ready to show the world her sweet and silly personality!

Swiss Cheese will be happy as an only dog or living with other pets. All she asks for is wet dog food and lots of love. Swiss Cheese will make a wonderful family dog! Come and meet Swiss Cheese today!

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.


INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
