He is also a lovable, energetic pooch with the brightest, most beaming smile- for real- he smiles!! He seems to be saying "life can be nothing but happy when I'm with you!"
Spot's friends at the shelter rave about how affectionate he is. He loves his humans more than anything and wants to be near them as often as he can so he can be scritched and rubbed and loved. Spot thinks laps are created for him to snuggle in and he will melt at your feet and roll over for belly rubs. You can't help but reward that adorable behavior! When you walk through the door after work, the sheer joy that exudes out of Spot will make your day instantly brighter!
Spot's heart belongs solely to his humans, and he will spend his days happily proving it! He's crate-trained, very treat driven, and enjoys learning new tricks. In fact, Spot's such a smart pup that he's 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!
To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in the program learn to 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 the CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Spot after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free!

Spot truly just wants to spend his days devoted to his humans and to be loved and adored in return. A more devoted, loyal companion you'll never find. Come meet Spot! He promises to be the best buddy he can be!
