Juanita is such a lover-girl with a big, beautiful smile and bright silver eyes! She loves kisses, and if you make any sound that could be mistaken for a smooch, she's all over it, coming right over to love on you!
Juanita basically has two modes: play time and chill time, and she doesn't do either of them halfway. She's a big fan of playing with balls or her Kong but is also fascinated by television and makes a great Netflix buddy. And while she loves to be on the couch and and getting scratched behind the ears, she's not clingy about it and is also perfectly content to lie in her crate or on her own bed. When Juanita is super-relaxed, she makes an adorable sound like the air being let out of a tire!
This sweet girl is house-trained and will let you know when she needs to go outside. She's also very smart and is thriving in APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP), which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Juanita 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! She 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, Juanita will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Juanita 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.

Juanita is an all-in type of lady. She plays hard, relaxes hard and loves hard. If you can relate, come meet this sweet pup!
