One of the first things you may notice about Juanita is her beautiful smile, not to mention her absolutely stunning silver eyes - pictures do not do them justice! And there are plenty of opportunities for Juanita to smile and flash those pretty eyes because she's a party girl with lots and lots of energy to burn.

Juanita loves rope toys and giving smooches to her humans and should make the perfect running partner for the trail. This smart pup is also 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. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193

Juanita goes all out on anything you do with her, whether that be playing or learning new skills. One look from Juanita's eyes, and you'll be hooked. Come meet this amazing pup!
