APA! won't let any healthy, happy animal go unloved or unwanted; they'll keep many animals for years until they find the right home. This week, we feature a creature that fits into the long-stay category.

Name: Cupcake

Sex: Female

Sex: Female

Breed: Terrier, American Staffordshire Mix

Current weight: 41 pounds

Adult size: Medium

Sign: Pisces

Age: 4 years

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Adoption Donation: $25

Location: Foster home

Surprise fact: She has a literal Fan Club which threw her a birthday party (with gifts!) because she's so happy to see everyone she meets.

What APA! says about Cupcake:

  • She wiggles from her nose to her tail when she seems someone approaching, she's so excited.
  • She loves humans, but not all animals.
  • She currently works 1-2 times a week to polish her dog-dog skills and is a regular in weekly group hikes.
  • She's a pro at learning tricks and has a lot under her belt already.

Why APA! says Cupcake deserves your love:

  • She's a long-stay animal at APA! that everyone has fallen in love with.
  • She has gone through the Canine Good Citizens training and is only a test away from being fully certified!
  • She's just so happy!

In summary: If you're active (preferably with a fenced-in backyard), don't have any other animals and like the idea of training a companion to learn new tricks and behaviors, Cupcake is the gal for you.
