In the last month, Lifebloom, affectionately known as Bloom, has transformed remarkably. He has gone from a frail parvo survivor who dreaded solitude to a robust, self-assured pup eager to explore, play, and snuggle. Now, Bloom is full of life and loves nothing more than a good romp with his favorite rope toy, squeaker, or ball. Watching him dig through his toy box to find the perfect plaything is a delight. He enjoys playing fetch, often running back with the ball, only to plop it in your lap, seeking rubs and praise until he drops it in his playful excitement.

Bloom is a yard explorer, chasing bugs, sniffing around, and occasionally helping with chores. After a burst of energy, he loves to chew on sticks and receive belly rubs in the grass. Indoors, a couple of ice cubes help him cool down after his outdoor adventures. Bloom is also a social butterfly, greeting new people with enthusiasm and sneaking in a few licks if they're wearing shorts.

Bloom has learned several commands like "sit," "come," "down," and "leave it," though he sometimes treats them as suggestions. He's making steady progress in house-training and finds comfort in his crate at night or when alone. While our cats remain perplexed by Bloom's exuberance, there are hopeful signs of peaceful coexistence as they gradually adjust to each other.

Recently cleared for neighborhood walks and doggy playdates, Bloom is already relishing his new adventures. If you're ready for the joys and responsibilities of puppy life, Bloom would love to be part of your world, bringing endless excitement and affection-just don't forget the belly rubs!

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.
