Who doesn't want a big, handsome guy to be your most treasured companion?? If that's you, then Speckles is the one you've been looking for!

A true gentle giant, this boy has so much love to give. He is sometimes discerning about who he wants to be BFF's with - but who isn't these days! He likes to socially distance himself until he's ready to let someone in...but once you're in, he will be your most devoted buddy.

Speckles is a master snuggler, and a great guy on leash so walks are always a good choice for getting some exercise. He does venture into playgroups at APA! on occasion, but truth be told, he'd prefer to hang with his humans. He would thrive in a home with one, maybe two humans, and we think he'd really thrive as the head canine honcho. Looking for a handsome, furry, devoted companion? Speckles is the guy for you!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

What That Animal Rescue Show Means to APA!
