Tasos is an affectionate puppy who's having such a good time with his new human friends and their pets. This cute boy is in foster care, where he's happy to wrestle with their dog. He's a gentle boy who's also having fun with their 8- and 15-year-old kids, just sometimes jumping up to take treats from them. And he's very respectful of their cats.

He's a fearless, playful boy who also likes to lounge on the back porch and watch the kids swim. Then he's happy to play fetch and carry his yellow baby toy around the house. He's making progress on his potty training, learning to go outside. And he's doing well in a bedroom when his fosters are away, either sleeping on their bed or his bed on the floor. He'll scratch at the bedroom door when he wants in for sleepy time or to snuggle and cuddle with his people.

Tasos will love a home with outgoing parents who can take him on adventures, and he'll hope for dog buddies to play with. He always likes to meet new people, so come get acquainted with this sweet boy. And see more about him on Instagram: tlc_with_mama_g.


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.
