Good looks? Check! Good manners? Check! Good fetching skills? Check, check check!

Bock is one happy dude! He will flirt with his 1,000-watt smile and win you over with his joie de vivre. Then when he's sure of your love, he'll turn his attention to the other love of his life: balls. Tennis balls, jolly balls (yes, those toys meant for horses), and even a bowling ball he tries to stand on! Bock loves them all! He also really enjoys playing with frisbees and chillin' in a pool.

Don't worry, Bock has a soft spot for humans too. As soon as you call him over, he's all wiggles and back scratches. He loves to snuggle after a full day of fetch, so get comfortable! This cute chicken (bock bock bock!) is a charmer and would love nothing more than to be your Netflix partner every day of the week.

Bock loves learning; he's happy to hang up his ball for a little bit while he's learning the finer points of obedience at the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Bock has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! He is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called.

Once Bock successfully completes all the skills on his training plan he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Bock 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 Bock 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:

Don't miss out on the gorgeous dog! Bock is all retriever and will reward long days of fetching with companionship.
