Gomez is a shy little guy who once he got used to the dogs in his foster home, became very playful and snuggly with them. And when he saw his foster mom playing with the dogs, that got him more interested in her, and he'd dart in to give her arms and hands little kisses. Now he likes to gently wrestle with her hands (Gomez has the softest mouth), and he's become the sweetest little houseguest, cuddling up with her and the other pups at night.

Gomez likes getting rough and rowdy with his doggie friends, and he will even entertain himself with sticks and running zoomies around the yard. He also likes jumping in the pool to cool off and will adorably submerge himself like a baby hippo. He has the typical puppy curiosity about everything and is very responsive to gentle verbal commands like "eh eh". He's also crate-trained, settling down in his crate after a bit of fussing.

Gomez would love a home with some social resident pups to show him the ropes, help him to continue to build his confidence and introduce him to their human friends. In return, he promises to be a sweet and entertaining little companion. Come meet him!

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.
