Hi, my name is Apple Dumpling and I am a 12 week old Shepherd/Lab mix puppy. Nothing like a soft, warm apple dumpling to warm up a cold winter day. And I'm a cuddly one too! My sweet personality will make any day brighter. I am up to date on age appropriate vaccines. All adoptions will take place the second weekend of December. Could that be you??!! I am fostered in King William, VA. Apply to adopt me today ! Due to her small size and young age, we recommend that she goes to a home with children that are respectful of her size and age. Because she is a baby, she will require an adopter who is not out of the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue her training - no exceptions! She is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be altered at the appropriate age per the spay/neuter agreement you will be signing at the time of adoption. Please note that because she is so young, she has only received 2 sets of the required 3 sets puppy vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that her immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. She MUST stay out of public places where she could be exposed to the germs of many other dogs for another 8-10 weeks after she goes home. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy's medical safety and longevity.
