Sun Valley Animal Shelter issued the following announcement.
Due to the high level of interest, SVAS is accepting APPLICATIONS in order to find me the right home for my specific needs. Please be advised, I will not go home the same day but if you are interested please come down to visit, fill out an application and stay for a "meet & greet" with an Adoption Counselor. This will give us a chance to speak in person and get to know you a little better, as we provide a customized adoption experience. We believe every adoption should be a positive experience for both the adopter and the shelter pet. By learning which characteristics are most important for your new pet and getting a chance to hear about my current training and socializing program, we can determine if I am the right match for you. We appreciate your patience and look forward to meeting you.

Where I came from...
I was brought to the shelter at just a few days old, by a kind soul who found my mom outside ready to have her puppies. She took my mom in so she could have her puppies inside until she found us a more permanent situation. I'm a young man who has a lot of learning & growing to do, so please be ready to make a lifetime commitment to me.
A little bit about me...
Fun loving with lots of energy
I do shed regularly
Not suited for an apartment
Puppy: All training required
Loves playing w/ friendly dogs
Craves an active home
My ideal home would include...
-A family or companion with the time, patience, & energy to help me adjust to my new surroundings, get comfortable in my new home and develop a routine. I'm a young puppy who's never lived in a home before, so everything will be all new to me. I need to be shown what's expected of me, in & out of your home.
-A companion with the energy to keep up with me, while giving me the exercise and mental stimulation that I very much need and desire. I may be small, but I'm a young puppy with a lot of energy!
-A home that understands my small delicate size. I like to follow you around wherever you go, & the last thing I want is to be stepped on or trip you up. I'm quick so be ready to catch me to leash me for a walk.
-I have been socialized during my stay here, and I love almost everyone I meet, both dogs and human. I'd love a home that wants to keep up with my socializing, and bring me out and about to meet new people and new dogs, as this will help me become a confident adult.
