Do you need a new best friend? Well, meet Bes...you know, sometimes these intro lines just write themselves. But Bestie really does work hard to be everyone's friend! She seems to love all humans. She'll try to get your attention by staying close to you and occasionally hopping up on you. But we've taught her to sit and wait, so she is becoming much more patient and will wait for her turn to be petted - or ideally, receive a belly rub!

Bestie is not tentative around new faces either - she approaches strangers and can't wait to introduce herself. She loves adults and kids alike.

Bestie is currently living in an APA foster home. She has been a great guest for her foster family, and she's ready to bring her winning attitude to your house. She plays (and relaxes) with many dogs - male female, old, young, big, small - she does well with all of them. She also make a great walking partner for you - she loves heading out into the neighborhood for a stroll, and her leash manners are getting better and better.

We're working with Bestie all on the essentials she'll need to join your family. She is learning "heel, "sit, down, "place (get on dog bed), "wait, and "leave it. She's also learned to enjoy being in her crate. She loves nothing more than having a playful romp with her doggie housemates, a training session with her humans, and a walk on leash followed by a cuddle session. And after a long day of dog life, she will enjoy relaxing on her dog bed, chewing on a stuffed toy, and helping you catch up with your favorite shows.

Bestie would love to be in a home with an active family, perhaps with a dog buddy to play with! She would love a yard so she can burn a bit of energy. And she will be anxious to continue her training with her new family. This active, happy, confident dog will bring a whole lot of smiles to your house, and should be a great family companion for many years. Plus, you won't just be giving her a good home, you'll also be helping another dog join us at APA!
Come meet your new best friend
