This sweet Tawny is all legs, ears -- and spunk! She loves to be around humans and is not shy about coming up to you for kisses and cuddles. She wants to be right in the middle of the action, preferably on your lap! Tawny is equal parts play and snuggle.

She is very curious about the world - exploring the yard and learning about all the smells is her favorite thing to do. She enjoys having a foster sibling to show her the ropes and play chase around the yard. Her foster family is working on house-training and crate-training, and she is improving so much! She eats all of her meals in the crate and then settles for some good chill time. She is learning that the crate is a safe place to hang out away from the chaos, and she's also been sleeping in there all night! Come meet this loving sweetie 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.
