Introducing Costello, an adorable house-trained puppy and sweet bundle of joy! Costello currently lives in a foster home with other dogs. He adores both dogs and follows them when they go outside to play! This means he can live in a home with other dogs. He also lives with two children, ages 10 and 15. He gets along great with them and has met a lot of younger children as well. He is sweet, gentle and friendly!

Costello is an extraordinarily sweet puppy, who seems to be a mix of all dogs. He even has a small tuft of long hair that seems to represent his a tiny bit of Australian Shepherd.

He wants to always be near you and has cuddling skills beyond his years. He is also very playful, but his relax time outweighs his zoomie time.

He adores toys and shoes, but he is a collector, not a destroyer. This little guy is wonderful with all humans and dogs. He wants to be everyone's friend. He is well along with potty-training and he is eager to learn new commands.

You can see that he wants to understand you when he looks at you with his sweet expressive eyes. Costello is a dog to be cherished. He will be a perfect family dog or a perfect human's best friend and sidekick. He will always make you feel loved, adored, cuddled, kissed and maybe cuddled again.

Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the sweet, playful, cuddly Costello? Come meet Costello 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.
