Lean down next to Patricia and she'll push her whole self into you with one question: "Will you pet me now? And she'll give you that cute smile with her tongue lolling out.

This sweet girl may seem shy at first, but she's really a gentle, loving lady. Her favorite activity is playing with those rope toys she loves, even running around and swinging them in her kennel.

Patricia is a calm and collected girl and a smart pup who enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modelled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Patricia 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! She 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 Patricia successfully completes all the skills on her training plan she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Patricia 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 her 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:

Once her training sessions are done, Patricia wants to go back to cuddling with her trainer - and any other human friend who comes along. Come meet this girl and see how wonderfully well-trained and lovable she is!
