If you need to be reminded that it's playtime, Oatmeal is your girl. This mischievous puppy will bring you every dog toy in the house, telling you to quit reading a book and "play with me!"

This sweet girl is a cuddle bug who rolled over for belly rubs in her first hour in foster care. She loves to play with her foster, especially with tennis balls. Then this very rambunctious, curious girl loves chasing squirrels in the yard, chewing up paper and exploring those interesting drawers and trash cans. She likes being picked up and carried around by her human. And she's having fun following her foster dog buddy. She can also be a lazy girl who loves snoozing on his bed and in her foster's lap. She tires out quickly and enjoys lounging on the sunny patio or warm grass in the backyard. She's making progress on her house-training and crate-training and is already learning to answer to "sit.

She's a very adaptable, chill baby who should do well in homes and apartments with parents who can continue her training. And she'll enjoy a doggie housemate. Come meet this adorable girl!

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.
