Bart is doing great in his foster home! He continues to interact well with both resident dogs, enjoying playtime and respecting their space when they're not in the mood. He's also excellent at sharing toys and loves sunbathing sessions with his little dog friend.

In terms of interactions with cats, Bart gives them their space and isn't overly eager to interact with them.

His crate training is progressing well, and he does well overnight and for extended periods. He may cry for the first 10 minutes but quickly calms down with a frozen peanut butter Kong and a nap.

Bart is fully house trained and hasn't had an accident since the first day. He lets his foster family know when he needs to go outside by sitting by the back door.

He is hearing impaired and has allergies, but this doesn't hold him back. He can be a bit timid around new people but warms up quickly with some treats and scratches behind the ear.

Overall, Bart is a loving and well-behaved pup who would make a wonderful addition to any home!

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.
