Cotton Candy will steal your heart with her cuddles! Though shy at first, Cotton Candy has warmed up to her foster mom in a matter of days. Even when she was a shy pup, she was still a rockstar cuddler. Now that she has opened up a little bit, she is more talkative and will let you know when she wants to play. Since she has started teething, she enjoys playing tug-of-war with her toys and chewing on her bones.

Cotton Candy has shown exemplary control over her bowels and wakes herself up at night to do her business on a pee-pad. She cannot go outside yet as she is under vaccinated, but since she has that initial control, being so young, we have no concerns about her outdoor training once she is fully vaccinated. Every time she poops, she has a burst of energy, maybe because she feels lighter!

When her foster mom leaves the house, she gives her a smear of peanut butter on a bone (which she loves) to keep her preoccupied long enough for her human to slip out the door and she is fine after that. Her foster mom also plays relaxing dog music for her while she is away.

Cotton Candy is so young and impressionable that she can learn to thrive in any home. She has pretty big paws for a small puppy. Sweet Cotton Candy will steal your heart. Come meet this adorable young gal 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.
