If you are looking for a cuddly playmate, Acorn can be your furry best friend! This sweet young boy loves cuddling with his humans, snuggling on the couch and in his bed. Then he's off into energetic playtime, taking all his toys out of his toy bin and choosing which one to play with. He loves playing with his toys!

Now in foster, Acorn is also very playful with his foster's large older dogs. He also loves his leash walks. At home, he loves running in the backyard and is very fast. Then, of course he wants to go back inside and cuddle.

Acorn is working on his obedience skills and already understands "sit. He eats, sleeps and rests in his crate and does well there when his foster is away. And he is house-trained.

He will love a home with people who can be his cuddly playmates, and he'll enjoy doggie housemates and a backyard. Come meet this wiggly, entertaining boy!

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.
