Daphne is a mature, medium energy lady who has probably seen her share of life's harder edges and would truly appreciate the chance to thrive in a loving home where she can relax and enjoy the finer things in life. She has recently gone on some field trips and sleepovers with volunteers, and has enjoyed exploring more of the world. Daphne is a rockstar in the car, calm as can be, she just loves looking out the window. She greets strangers with a calm and respectful manner and loves getting treats, which she takes very gently.
During an extended sleepover, Daphne played and slept with 10 year old and 6 year old and she was very loving and sweet. Calm and low key in the home, she is house-trained and easy to leave alone.
Until she finds her family, she is keeping busy in APA's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test! Daphne has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations.
Dogs in APA's CGC program learn to sit and down, walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told "free," and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Daphne after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free!

If you're looking for an easy going, affectionate, and mellow dog, Daphne definitely wants to meet you!
