Meet Poltergeist, the charming tan and white pup with floppy ears ready to bring joy and love into your home! Poltergeist effortlessly blends into a household, getting along famously with both furry and human members. He's a quick learner, showcasing his intelligence by mastering commands like sit and down while diligently working on perfecting down/stay.

This adorable fellow is crate trained, settling down swiftly for a cozy rest. Poltergeist is not just a playful companion but also a bit of a collector, showcasing his unique habit of burying toys and bones in the yard or tucking them between couch cushions-truly a cute and endearing trait!

If you're searching for a smart, affectionate, and charming addition to your family, Poltergeist is the one for you. Come meet this delightful pup and experience the joy he brings to every moment! Inquire more 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.
