ntroducing Aurora Borealis, a resilient female pup with a captivating mix of mostly black and some white fur. As a parvo survivor, she has shown incredible strength and adaptability. Aurora is making commendable progress in her potty training endeavors, demonstrating a quick understanding of the routine, especially in the backyard.

This sweet and affectionate pup has a penchant for following her humans around, showcasing her loyalty and companionship. Recognizing her enthusiasm for treats, Aurora is easily motivated, making crate training effective during meal preparations to maintain kitchen boundaries.

Aurora's favorite activities include chewing on toys, taking delightful naps with her beloved humans, and enjoying short walks. Despite her young age, Aurora has already earned a special place in the hearts of her caretakers, who affectionately refer to her as "lovey" or "Kiko." Her endearing goofiness, sweetness, and a touch of clumsiness make her a unique and lovable addition to any home.

With her charming personality and heartwarming resilience, Aurora Borealis is ready to bring joy and companionship to a forever family.

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.
