Pinball is a great listener and is looking for a human who is ready to cuddle with her and teach her some more tricks. But don't be fooled- she's a smart girl and knows quite a few already.
She's easy to please, and is always down for a cuddle, a pet, or even a walk. She's always ready to learn, and to love. Pinball's perfect home would be one with a big back yard for her to play in. And humans who like being active, or going on runs or on the trails would be a perfect fit.
She's great walking on a leash, listens well and 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, Pinball has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him/her learn the skills to become the best dog he/she can be!
Pinball is now TOP Dog Ready, which means she is 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. Pinball 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 Name after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together.
