Let's continue the pup parade at APA!. Here is yet another promising youngster. Amelia is all the great things a puppy should be! She's currently living with an APA! foster family and is showing off her good-natured personality as she learns the ways of the world.

Amelia is sharing her home with her littermates, and she is playful and loving with all of them. She's also spending time with children and gets along great with them too. She'll even allow kids to pick her up, and loves to snuggle. What about cats? One is living in her foster home, and Amelia likes her too! Clearly, she is quite social!

Amelia is growing up quickly. She's showing an independent streak - she does great when left alone to romp around in her playpen. And you'll love her sweet, loving nature! She is a puppy that loves to be with her humans. She enjoys always coming back to the house and lying in her bed. She is a sweetheart and will love being part of your family. Her fosters are working on teaching her all the basics so that she'll be ready to make a seamless transition to your home. And don't forget, when you adopt from APA! you won't just be giving one dog a good home - you'll also be helping the next dog who can join us!

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.
