This affectionate, sometimes goofy girl can be shy when first meeting new humans, but once she gets comfortably acquainted, she lights up and her personality shines. She loves, loves and loves her human friends and wants to cuddle with them, sneaking in kisses and curling up in their laps.
Galaxy is happy to take walks and play with toys, then lay next to her people and ask for petting. And if it's been a while since you gave her a treat, she'll put her paw on your arm as a polite reminder.
Galaxy has great leash skills and is crate and house trained. Quick to learn, Galaxy is 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, Galaxy 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 is now TOP Dog Ready, which means she's already learned all the skills in her training plan, including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called.
Galaxy has worked 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 Galaxy 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: https://vimeo.com/89434193
Come meet this girl with the cutest, most contagious smile and see if she can be part of your galaxy!
