Who is ready to Play Ball!? My name is Cadence, and I am a beautiful, playful young gal who loves the finer things in life including playing with balls, going for walks, running after balls, snuggling with my humans, and did I mention playing with balls? It would be a big bonus to have a fenced yard at my forever home so I can (you guessed it!) play ball to my heart's content. I am still a young lady, but am a smartypants who is already past the destructive dinosaur puppy stage and I learn new tricks and commands quickly; my adopters will need to sign me up for training classes where I am sure we will be class valedictorians! I would do best with older children given my play style and exuberance, and I am friendly with most other dogs after a proper introduction. Remember when I said I am smart? I come already potty trained, and I do well in a penned off area overnight or when my humans need to leave the house for a while. I hope you stock up on tennis balls and fill out an adoption application soon, because we have a lifetime of fun to get started!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
