Mars is full of energy and love! She is obsessed with the resident dog in her foster home, and she'll want to follow her everywhere to play, snuggle, and give kisses. Mars would do great in a home with another dog but would also be happy to be spoiled as the only dog as she entertains herself with toys when she's in the playpen alone.

She loves being around the people and the action... wherever we are in the house, that is where Mars will be! She sleeps through the night in her crate with no accidents. She is still working on potty training but is showing improvements in a very short amount of time, so she learns quickly! Her daily routine has pretty much consisted of play hard, nap hard.

Mars has a cataract in one of her eyes, but it doesn't seem to bother her or slow her down. She is a very happy and sweet puppy. She recently recovered from Parvo and therefore is on Distemper Watch, but she hasn't shown any signs of sickness. Come meet Mars, she will make a great addition to your family!

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.
