Pancetta is a sweet girl who is eager to play with humans and other dogs - always offering love and affection. Whether you're on your laptop or eating dinner, she always gazes to see if you need anything or if she could be of service. Most of the time she's entirely content with being lazy inside her crate or her designated spot on the couch.

There's nobody she doesn't want to play with and that can be seen from the moment you meet her. She's incredibly well house- and crate-trained. When she's ready to pee or poop, she will give a small whine or howl to alert you she's ready to go out. Her foster takes her downstairs on an elevator to where she knows exactly where to go. Sometimes, after she's finished, she might want to explore a bit, but for the most part (in this cold wintertime) she wants to run back home and snuggle in her blankets.

She has lots of energy and is always willing to play and have a good time. She's also incredibly smart and can learn tricks after a few repetitions. Examples include sit, handshake, down, and running through hula hoops.

Pancetta will make a loving companion and wonderful Netflix buddy while lounging on the couch. Of course, she always responds to treats, too! Come meet this adorable girl!

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!
