Dogwood is a fast learner and the smartest pup you'll ever meet. He loves being around people! Whenever he meets visitors in his foster home, he says hi to them with an excited wag of his tail. He loves smiling and getting your petting when he gets excited - loves it when you play fetch with him! And he enjoys cuddles and playing tag.

Dogwood's crate is very comfy when he's tired and wants to take a nap. He has no problem sleeping there! But when he's not sleeping, he likes cuddling with you and being around you because he has so much love to share!

He is also potty-trained and understands sit and how to shake his paw. He learned tricks and habits in a very short amount of time. He's also a brave boy who recently got over his fears of doorways and hallways.

Dogwood (named Java by his fosters) will make a wonderful friend and/or family member as he is calm and friendly with everyone. He is an adorable puppy that will grow into a handsome dog. Come meet him 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.
