Meet Sprout, the delightful puppy ready to blossom into your loving companion! Sprout is filled with excitement around other dogs, showcasing his social nature and potential for canine companionship.

This sweet pup is crate-trained, making him feel safe and secure in his cozy space. While almost fully potty-trained, Sprout continues to learn and improve every day. He exudes affection towards his caregiver but tends to be nervous around new people. With patient and confident guidance, Sprout is steadily overcoming his fears, showing no signs of aggression.

Sprout's crate is his sanctuary, where he sleeps and willingly retreats during playtime. Despite initial hesitations, he's adapting well and curbing play biting tendencies. With expressive eyes and a ton of personality, Sprout is a delightful addition to any home.

This sweet pup with puppy energy would thrive with another dog companion to show him the ropes and boost his confidence. If you're a patient and confident owner seeking a loving sidekick.

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.
