Brasco has made an exciting discovery - those tennis balls are really fun to chase. So he brings them back and drops at his person's feet on command so he can fetch them all over again.

This happy, bouncy boy loves to romp and play. And outdoors he loves to explore with many, many sniffs. And then he wants to be with his human friends, getting as close to them as possible, curling his entire body against them.

Brasco has lived with kids in the past. He walks well on his leash, seems crate trained and is reported to be house trained. And he's a gentle taker of those treats he loves.

Brasco also enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modelled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Brasco 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! Brasco is learning skills like sit and down, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called.

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

Brasco is cheerful boy is looking for a home where he can get abundant love. He promises to return it many times over.
