Personality Color: blue

Blue dogs are easy going and easily adapt to new situations. They are generally calm, may be playful but not overly exuberant, and will likely be happy doing just about anything with you. These dogs will be a good fit for just about any home, and would be great for first-time dog owners.

Bio data

Crackle has been spending some time in foster. Here’s what the humans have to say about her:

Hello, I’m Crackle!  My foster mom and dad say I am the sweetest foster dog they have ever had.  I’ve been with my foster family a little longer than usual, because I needed surgery and heart worm treatment before I could search for my forever home. My foster mom says that I am the perfect catch—I’m housetrained, crate trained and love to snuggle. I will need an adjustment period to get used to my new home, routine, and people.  I like gentle people and children, and have stayed in a home with small children when my foster family was traveling—and they said I did a great job. I even kept the floor around their little’s high chair really clean! I have also stayed with cats and consider them my friends. Because other dogs can scare me, I would prefer to be the only dog in your home—but if you have a gentle sniffing partner, I could always meet them and let you know what I think.


When I first came to the shelter I limped on my back leg, so APS sent me for x-rays and it turns out that I must have gotten hurt when I was little and it didn’t heal properly.  I had a really special surgery and had to stay in my kennel A LOT while my leg was healing, so I had my heart worm treatment while I was taking it easy. I love to chew on my yak bones and this helped me pass time in my kennel, and I LOVE to snuggle, so my foster family made lots of blanket forts to snuggle with me. Before my surgery I loved going on walks, sniffing around the park, meeting new human friends, snuggling on the couch, playing with my toys and chewing my yak bones. My foster mom says I’m really good about knowing that I’m only allowed to chew my toys and bones.


Kids: Any age, can be grabby with treats

Dogs: Sniffs, then very avoidant, quick to correct; prefers single dog; slow/careful intros with dogs that will give her space.
