Delaney is in foster care and is such a great houseguest there! This outgoing, playful girl is also having so much fun. She LOVES rolling over in the backyard's grass. Then she loves playing when she gets a chance to. Tug-o-war is her favorite game, and she enjoys playing fetch. (She'll fetch the toy, but keeps it.) This happy girl wiggles her tail -- and her whole body.

She's an energetic girl who's also having fun with the two resident dogs, a 7-year-old Boxer and a 3-year-old Pitbull. They play and chill out together, and she likes getting their attention. She's wary of new people she meets, but can get comfortable with them quickly and learn to trust them. She likes going for leash walks; she can just be distracted and suspicious when she sees strange new things, her ears perking up. And she is house-trained, doing well when often going outdoors. She can be reluctant to go in her crate, but stays well in it when her fosters are away.

Delany should fit well in most homes and should be especially happy with a dog buddy and kids to play with. She should be carefully monitored in the yard and on walks. Come meet her. She'll give you wiggles and follow you home!

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.
