Meet Eddie, the sweet, gentle pup who can't wait to bring his loving spirit into your home and heart! This shy guy may take a little time to warm up initially, but once he feels comfortable, Eddie's true cuddlebug personality will shine through. He adores snuggling up for belly rubs and ear scratches with his favorite humans.

Eddie has a calm, easygoing demeanor that makes him a dream housemate. He's a professional couch potato who loves lounging around the house, though Eddie does enjoy getting out for walks and playtime too. This gentle boy gets along great with other dogs after a proper introduction, though he can be a bit timid at first. Eddie has also done wonderfully when meeting cats, giving him the potential to fit into many different households!

He aims to please his humans and picks up on training quickly with his food-motivated personality. With his loving nature, Eddie will thrive in a patient, caring home to continue building his confidence.

Could you be the lucky family to show this sweet pup just how wonderful life in a forever home can be? Eddie can't wait to bring his gentle spirit, cuddly ways, and endearing shyness into your lives. He'll shower you with loyalty and puppy kisses as his new best friends!

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.
