Meet Santa Cruz. She's a sweet, compliant, playful, quiet girl who seeks humans for cuddles -- and playing fetch.

She loves everyone she meets. Now in foster, she also loves the two cats and senior dog who live with her. She just wishes they would play with her more. She especially loves her furry toys and will gladly bring them to her human for a game of fetch. When she's not playing or chewing on her bone, she lives a good cuddle with her human.

She's very obedient and leaves things alone when told "no." She's not quite house-trained yet, but she's working on it, and she sits when she comes to you. She's also very quiet. Her foster has not heard her bark yet. She also does well in her crate when her foster is away.

So if you're looking for a sweet cuddle bug to add to your family, Santa Cruz is the dog for you. Come meet this adorable girl!

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.
