Energetic Perry wants to play with you! This good boy loves to romp, wrestle, play, and chew-lots to love if you're the energetic type who wants a good walking or hiking buddy! He is an adventure hound, very curious and smart, strong and athletic.

Perry is sturdy, smart, and so curious! He watches everything and everyone, and nothing gets past Perry. He picks up new concepts very quickly, and you can tell that he just wants to learn how to be the best boy he can be! He's blossomed into a sweet, affectionate boy.

Perry gets rambunctious, but he still does well in a crate. He loves a good bone or chew toy to work on, and he's interested in chasing balls, so he's learning how to play fetch.

He's doing an amazing job at his training. He's eager to please and already understands "sit and is working on "come and "stay. And he is working on his house-training, figuring out when it's time to tell his people that he needs to go out and do his business.

Perry is a busy boy who likes to have things to do, other pups or people to play with, and plenty of stuff to chew on. He's an energizer bunny most of the time but is also a strong napper who loves to cuddle up at the end of a long day.

Perry will love a home where he can be the center of attention, so he will be happiest as the only dog.

Are you looking for a sweet, energetic young pup to grow into a great companion dog? Well, look no further than Perry! Come meet Perry 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.
