Graphite is a quick learner! He has made big gains in the leash walking and potty training game. He only needs potty breaks every 4-6 hours at night and he has learned 'sit' and is learning 'lay down.' Graphite does well with everyone - big dogs, cats, kids, and strangers. Although he is interested in cats, he is respectful of their boundaries when they aren't interested.

He loves stuffed toys and playing tug-of-war. He would do great with a family that is active! But when they want to relax, he will cuddle up beside them. He is the best of both worlds. As he is still growing, he will need some supervision to help him learn the rules. When the fam is out, he will do well in his crate.

Come meet this adorable man!

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.
