Meet Cardigan, the ultimate ray of sunshine wrapped in fur! This playful, loving pup is ready to bring joy and excitement to her forever home.

Cardigan lives with two chihuahuas and two cats, and while her boundless energy and excitement sometimes annoy her smaller housemates, she's learning quickly with gentle corrections.

Whether it's sitting on your shoulders like a bird, giving kisses, or just being close by, she's always ready to show her love.

Cardigan is crate-trained and finds comfort in her kennel, especially with her favorite blanket and a towel covering it to block out light. She's still mastering house training but is making excellent progress and knows to go potty outside. Walks are a favorite activity, and she does well on a leash, always eager for an adventure.

Active and curious, Cardigan loves playing with toys, running around the backyard with the zoomies, chasing birds and squirrels, and enjoying car rides. She's particularly fond of playing with sprinklers and chewing on sticks. Her ultimate joy, however, comes from interacting with her humans. She'll run to you at the sound of the ice machine and sit patiently for her ice cube treat, and she loves organic peanut butter on her lick mat.

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.
