Did you know we had a social media influencer in our midst? From the latest bridle coat to the 'in' on the floppiest ears, Brock knows he's the voice of his doggie generation! Like any good social media guru, Brock has his own hashtag #brockstar, and you can see him hanging out in many a public place as an exemplary spokesdog of APA!

But Brock isn't all fluff. He understands the finer things in life - a soft bed, green grass to lounge in, nice strolls around the block and cuddling with his person. And he does the sweetest flop into your lap when he's ready for snuggles!

As cuddly as he is, Brock is a pretty independent and calm pup in the home - he adores his crate and chilling on his bed. He may try to hop on the couch, but is good about getting down when you tell him to. Outdoors, it's a different story. This boy has quite a bit of energy to burn and loves going on hikes and runs, swimming and romping around with his toys. He does best with indestructible ones, and once he has a nice durable toy to chew on, it becomes his favorite thing.

Brock goes to playgroup with his canine pals at the shelter and may be able to go home with a well-matched doggie sibling. He's also lived with chickens in the past (he even lets them ride on his back!). He's also quite the 'Brockstar' when it comes to his skills. He walks nicely on leash, sits and shakes on commands and is learning all kinds of new things as a Canine Good Citizen trainee, 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 test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in the CGC program learn to 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.

Brock has been 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

Affectionate and goofy, happy and wiggly, Brock is a dog who's chock full of personality, and he's going to make some lucky family very happy. Come meet him!
