Castora is an adorable puppy who was shy at first with strangers coming into the house, but now is happy to welcome them and give sweet kisses. She can be a little shy with meeting people out on leash, but warms up quickly.

Castora loves to play with any kind of toys and adores rough-housing with her sister, but is more polite with the resident border collie and Jack Russell. She's still a puppy, so she has lots of energy to burn and loves romping around in the backyard or going for hikes, but after some playtime or a long walk, she's ready to do some napping.

Castora makes great eye contact, already knows "sit" and is very motivated by treats, so learning commands should come easy. She sleeps all night quietly in her crate, stays in an X-pen during the day and is calm when left home alone. She's making good progress on her potty training and those sweet eyes are very good at looking ashamed when she has an accident inside.

With her sweet personality and those gorgeous eyes, Castora is a tough dog not to fall in love with. She'd love a home with other playful dogs and people who will give her plenty of attention and include her in their activities. If that sounds like yours, come meet this great pup!

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.
