This sweet boy is instantly friendly and very affectionate when first meeting new humans. He's super happy when he can hang out with his friends, laying his head in their laps calmly and letting them love on him.
But don't let that sweet country dog personality fool you. Blue is super-smart and loves having his mind engaged. In fact, his trainer says Blue's the fastest learner she has ever worked with. He walks beautifully on his leash and has great recall. You can put a long leash on him, ask him to "sit"and walk really far away and he won't budge! Once you tell him "Blue come!" he jumps straight up and then come running like a big blue rabbit!
It's no surprise that Blue is thriving in APA!'s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program where he 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 CGC program learn to walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, how to greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told "free," and come when called.
Blue is working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride, and as part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with him after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free! Check out a video about CGC: https://vimeo.com/89434193
Blue loves being outside and would make a great outdoor companion to go adventuring with. He'd love an active home where he can be included in the family's activities and get lots of exercise and may even do well with a well-matched doggie sibling. Come meet this amazing pup!
