Mitzer is sweet and smart and has one of the most boop-able noses around! He's happy to stick right by your side for some cuddle time and is always down for lap-sitting. He's secretly hoping to be part of a scientific experiment that will shrink him into a little miniature pup so that he can ride around in your pocket all day. We've told him to not get his hopes up, but lucky for him, he's a great walking buddy as well!

Mitzer is a low-key, chill dude and while he can be a little shy at first, once you become buddies, he will make you feel like you're the most loved person on the planet! Mitzer will make sure you have plenty of puppy kisses and cuddles in your life, and is always ready to comfort you when you need it. He's already housebroken, quiet and calm, and great on a leash - he's a perfect little prince!

This affectionate boy also enjoys learning new things and is 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, Mitzer 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! Mitzer 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 Mitzer successfully completes all the skills on his training plan he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Mitzer 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 Mitzer 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:

If you've been missing a cuddle buddy and have some tasty treats to spare, come meet this sweet, happy guy and get ready to fall in love!
