Hey there, I'm Duck, and I'm ready to waddle my way into your heart! I'm a playful and silly guy who loves nothing more than spending time with my furry friends.

While I haven't had the chance to live with children, I did spend time with a 9-year-old and did well, although I'm still working on keeping all four paws on the ground when I get excited. I'm also cool as a cucumber around cats - I love playing with them and even let them give me a bath without any squawking.

When my humans are away, I'm a good boy in my crate, playing with my toys and enjoying some alone time. I'm mostly house-trained and will even let you know when I need to go out with my handy doorbell trick!

Now, let's talk about walks. If I'm on my own, I can get a little squirrely, but with a furry friend by my side, I'm strutting my stuff like a pro. I know how to sit, and I'm working on perfecting my stay - it's a work in progress, but I'm getting there!

When it comes to meeting new people, I can be a bit nervous at first, but with a little patience, I warm up quickly. I'm still learning how to give kisses, but I'm pretty sure I'll get the hang of it soon!

My perfect day? Well, it involves a basket full of toys, running around outside chasing frisbees, and lots of playtime with my furry friends. Oh, and did I mention I have this big stuffed animal that I carry around everywhere? It's my favorite!

I'm looking for a forever home with a furry companion to keep me company. I've learned that having a buddy makes me feel safe and happy. So, if you're looking for a playful and loving companion with fluffy ears and a curly tail, look no further - I'm your Duck! Check. out my instagram at @Wunder_foster_pets

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.
