Kit is a very distinguished gentleman. He has a regal look to him, but not so regal that he doesn't appreciate a good butt scratch! KIT is so overjoyed by a good butt scratch that he folds himself up into a fat furry donut of love and happiness when he gets them.

Kit also really loves walking around with tennis balls in his mouth and he'll even pick one out before he goes for a walk. "Hmm, what are we in the mood for today, old chap? Perhaps a Penn 100? Smells like it was a good year."

Kit has lived in a home before, he is house-trained and will tell you when he needs to go out. He walks great on a leash and he knows sit. He's 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, Kit 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! Kit 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," and coming when called.

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

Kit's one of those dogs who can't help but bring a smile to your face. And who doesn't need more of that in their life? Come meet this sweet pup!
