Affectionate and snuggly, Lizzy is also spunky girl that enjoys walks around the Lady Bird Lake trail where she walks nicely on leash. On the way, she is also known to flop over on her back to ask for belly rubs - you won't be able to resist!
Lizzy enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Lizzy has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be!
Lizzy is now TOP Dog Ready, which means she has already learned all the skills in her training plan, including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free,"and coming when called. Lizzy has worked hard to become a wonderful pet and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Lizzy 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: https://vimeo.com/89434193
This smart girl loves large and is ready to put all her love into her forever home. Come meet Lizzy and prepare to fall in love!
