Sweet Bellissimo has a heart of gold, and he's looking to become someone's loyal sidekick. This amazing boy has two favorite activities: Either he's calmly napping nearby while you work or watch TV, or he's ready to head outside to sniff every smell he can find either in the backyard or on a walk. If you are lucky enough to get to hangout with Bellissimo, be prepared to hear a lot of compliments when you're out and about with him. People will literally pull over their car just to tell him how handsome he his.

Now in foster care, his foster family calls him B-Mo, he has a good start on his crate-training and will sit for a treat. He loves treats! He is an excellent couch companion, but he is also happy to hop in the car to run errands with you anytime! When he is feeling playful, he loves a good game of tug but is ready to get back to couch cuddling as soon as his people are. B-Mo does not know what a stranger is and loves meeting new people. He will go right in for a hug or a snuggle.

This smart dude is also house-trained and loves to entertain himself by chasing bugs outside. He is very polite and on his best behavior while his foster parents eat. He is heartworm positive, but shows no symptoms. So all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense.

Bellissimo will do great in a wide range of homes, especially if they have a comfy couch or dog bed. He also wouldn't mind a dog buddy. He loves being near people and wants to give and receive affection. Are you ready to find your new best friend? Come meet Bellissimo! He may want to sit in your lap.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
