Not to be confused with the famous guitar player, this Santana, however, is just as cool and just as chill...and she's so smart that we're pretty sure she could pick up the guitar like she has mastered everything else she's been taught.

Long trail hikes? Check. Cuddle forever friend? Check. Polite and well mannered? Check. Perfect Leash walker? Check. Very lady-like unless there's a nice patch of grass to roll back and forth in? Check!

Santana's perfect day is a long, leisurely hike followed by a snooze in your lap. She is a perfect lady in the house and quite a beauty! She is sure to improve your decor just by lying on the couch. Her home skills are being impeccably house trained, an excellent napper, and too dignified to snatch anything off the counter.

Santana enjoys learning new things and is a rock star in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Santana has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! She has already learned skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, and coming when called.

Once Santana successfully completes all the skills on her training plan she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Santana is working hard to become a wonderful pet and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Santana after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based:
