Sitter needed: 10/5/20 - 10/9/20

Claire is an energetic young lady who loves being outdoors, running and playing with her human companions. "Play with me!" she demands.

She's playful outside even though she is being treated for neurological challenges that cause some balance issues. Even so, she walks pretty well on her leash. Indoors, this housetrained girl does well in her crate, falling asleep there quickly. And she's having fun with her two doggie housemates. She seems to like her feline friends as well.

Claire would like a family that will make sure she has everything she needs to grow into a happy and healthy girl! Come meet Claire. She is ready to play!

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.
