Known for his sprightly hop and goofball personality, Crowley has an undeniable zest for life. Channeling his inner kangaroo, his antics will have you in stitches! One of our favorite Crowley-isms is his playful way of flipping his blanket over his head when it's playtime.

This boy is a hiker and is an absolute Rockstar on his walks around Town Lake. He's very well behaved and easy to walk on leash. He's the perfect walking buddy with his spirited attitude, ear-to-ear smile, and expressive tongue. After all, there's always something wonderful to see or do around every corner. Each time Crowley hits the trail, it's like he's seeing it for the first time - all the smells, sights, sounds.

Crowley loves his friends and will happily collapse on the ground and go belly up for tummy rubs or offer his plushy toy for a good game of tug of war. As active as he is, Crowley is also a cuddly boy once he gets to know you. He'll settle down for pets and hugs for his favorite people.

Crowley also enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Crowley has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! Crowley is learning skills like 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 Crowley successfully completes all the skills on his training plan he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Crowley 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 Crowley 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: https://vimeo.com/89434193
