Bevo is a super-friendly dog who is looking for a family that is ready to love him back! This young adult is in the prime of life, and he's looking to become a long-term companion for a lucky home.

Did we mention he's friendly? He bonds quickly with new humans and becomes a very devoted friend. He loves getting a good petting session. Wagging his tail just isn't enough - he likes to wiggle his whole body! But he's not just a loverboy. He also enjoys getting in some exercise. He has a medium energy level, loves going on walks and makes a great walking partner. He's also very treat motivated. He's also great in the home and completely housebroken.

Bevo enjoys learning new things 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, Bevo as 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 she 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," as well as 'place' (running-to and staying-in a designated spot) and coming when called.

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