Playful, sweet and energetic, Corndog is a big boy with a beautiful squishy face and a name that fits him perfectly. He's a big softie who just wants to chase balls and go on walks with his people. He's good with meeting strangers, is always happy to see his friends and is very affectionate with them - he'll lean on them right away to get some pets and he loves to cuddle.

Corndog isn't hyper, but he's definitely an athlete and full of energy. And his love of tennis balls is undying - he'll fetch them for as long as you're willing to throw them. He adores tennis balls more than anything and will gently lay the ball at your feet to make it as easy as possible for you to throw it again. He's also been running the trails with our RuffTail Runner program and would love an active owner to get him out for long walks or hikes. Corndog does well left home alone and goes to playgroup to hang out with his doggie pals at the shelter and may be able to live with a well-matched doggie sibling.

Corndog is also in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Corndog 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," coming when called and "Place", which means he will go to a specific place in your home on command.

Once he successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Corndog is working hard to become a wonderful companion, and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with him 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:

Corndog is a classic dog's dog and he'd love a home with active humans that will want to play fetch with him and a yard to do that in would be a nice bonus. In return, he promises to love you forever. Come meet this great pup!
