Jackie is an amazing little girl. She is an incredibly bright pup, loves all people, dogs, (even cats), and is learning fast! Now in foster care, this social, sweet girl enjoys hanging out with other dogs, learning from watching them, and likes to play with and follow the fosters' three larger dogs. And she's curious and wonderful with their cats. She's a chill pup who also loves the neighbor's kids.

This cutie enjoys cuddles, playtime and exploring the great outdoors. Full of confidence, Jackie is doing well walking on a leash and will soon be learning her basic commands (sit, stay, come, etc.). Her foster family is blown away by how smart and sweet she is. There is no doubt that she will pick up on her training skills very quickly. She is teething and can get mouthy, but is easily redirected with a chew toy.

Jackie is likely going to be a big dog. She has long legs and big feet. Her back paws have six toes. It's adorable!! She is picking up on potty training very quickly. She instinctively seems to know to alert her people to let her out. She also sleeps well through the night, only whining when she has to go potty.

This little girl deserves a loving home and will thrive in a family that gives her lots of attention and outdoor adventures. Come meet this angel!


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.
