Check out Presley's Videos!

Presley is a hound mix who loves to explore the world with his hound nose. Walks involve a lot of sniffing, though he will keep up and focused when out jogging with his person.

Are you a morning person? Great! Because Presley is ready to take a walk pretty much as soon as he wakes up. But the rest of the day, he's as chill as can be. This calm boy has never been heard to bark at another dog or human, even when other dogs are barking or growling at him. He's just too mature to get involved in all that.

Presley is a fast learner and learned to sit in just a couple of days. He's also learning about how his crate is his special place, though if he's in there, he's not with his person who might give him a chin scratch, which is one of his favorite things.

In fact, Presley's such a quick study that he's now 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, Presley 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! Presley 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 Presley will go to a special spot in your home on command.

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

Presley is a great guy waiting on his forever home. He'd love a yard to sniff around, but mostly he'd love for you to come meet him. Don't keep this sweet guy waiting!
