Amber is a gorgeous girl who might look a bit intimidating at first glance, but when you take a moment to look into her eyes you will know the truth; Amber is a big ol' cuddle bug. Never have you met a more snuggly wuggly all-up-in-your-business dog. Seriously, all this super-friendly pup wants to do is be next to you and lean on you, kiss you, and snuggle.

On top of being a total sweetheart, Amber also enjoys learning new things and is 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, Amber 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! Amber 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 she will go to a specific place in your home on command.

Once she successfully completes all the skills on her training plan, Amber will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Amber 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:
