Spec is very energetic and loves to run and play. When he's really excited he runs as fast as he can in big circles that always end back with you! It makes me laugh!! He has little white gloves on all his feet that really flash when he runs and jumps! He's a talker! He likes to tell you about everything he's doing and feeling!

Spec has lived with his litter mates all his life and loves them.. He likes other dogs too. He's good with my 2 granddaughters ages 2 and 4. I'm not sure about cats. We have a 15 year old cat, but he doesn't come around the puppies much. I don't think Spec would have a problem with cats once he was introduced and got used to them.
I think Spec would be great with kids and other pets! He has a lot of energy and loves to play! He would also enjoy walking and hiking. He is ready to be someone's best buddy!

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.
