Sandstorm is the cutest most amazing dog I have ever met. Finding such a fun and loving companion to be with just brightens up everyone's day. Sandstorm loves to play fetch though he can get distracted sometimes as he is still a puppy. He loves to go on walks and meet other dogs and he is well behaved with them! He has no problems with strangers and generally keeps his distance. He will sometimes stop and sniff a lot but this is natural for puppies as they are still learning and getting their bearings in new environments. We even taught him to rebound a toy basketball everytime we shoot it! He is so much fun and the cutest guy. He is basically potty trained, with just a couple of accidents the first few days, and he will tell you when he needs to go by crying a little or going to the door, you just need to pay attention! He loves his crate and has no problem sleeping there at night and goes in easily with a treat! He loves to go on walks and generally that tires him out pretty good and boy does he love to sleep! He loves playing with toys just as much as he loves it when friends come over, he is the life of the party! With Sandstorm, your life is bound to be so much better than it was before.

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.
