Freckles is a gorgeous girl and will steal your heart before you know it. She currently lives in a foster home with a resident pup and children. She especially loves children and is young enough to adapt to any home with other pets or kids. She loves playing and chasing her foster large pup. She is very cuddly and loves belly rubs. She will sneak next to you and then turn over for belly rubs.

Freckles is mostly pee pad trained. She is so smart she will soon be housetrained in no time. She also does great in her crate, which means you can go out and about and run your errands knowing she is safe inside at home. She even learned to use doggie gate, just by watching resident pup.

Freckles understands "no and patiently sits for her food. She will need a home with someone who can continue her training and take her from puppyhood to making her into a great family dog. She loves to play with stuffed toys and lay in her soft bed.

Freckles is young and adaptable and would fit well in most households, especially those with other pets or children. She would probably love another dog to play with, but she loves people so much, she would be happy with just them also!

Are you looking for a sweet, playful and gorgeous girl? Then come meet Freckles today!

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.
