Sitter Needed: 07/04/2024 - 07/07/2024

This Bridget aka "Gold Rush. She was found under a bridge (hence the name)! She is a sweet, happy puppy filled with curiosity about everything! She always wants to be close by, and follows me everywhere. She loves to chase her favorite balls and loves to chew on her stuffies (stuffed squeaky toys). She loves to nap on my lap, but will happily snooze in her crate.

She is very curious about my kitties, and just wants to play. We haven't gotten to meet other dogs yet because we aren't old enough to be fully vaxxed, but she looks at other dogs with curiousity when we see them outside. She loves people and gets excited when we see strangers.

We are working on potty training, crate training, and leash training, and she is treat motivated and learning fast!

She would be a great addition to an active home, and would be a great adventure buddy?

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.
