Prima is primo! This lovely lass is a sweet, fun dog who we think would fit into most any family. She's
been spending time in an APA foster home and has shown us that she has the goods to move into yours.

Prima is an active dog who is always up for a good time, especially outdoors. She loves swimming -
perfect for summer fun in Austin. She's great at fetch, though she still needs some work on the
returning! She can also entertain herself with a toy, especially a squeaky toy that she can toss around. But Prima also knows how to relax. After burning off some energy, she loves to lounge around -
preferably with her favorite people nearby. And after some adjustment, she is getting along great with her four foster doggie siblings, who her foster said just had to work out the pecking order.

Prima is a real people pleaser. She would be up for continuing her training - and she'll make it fun for
everyone. We think she'd fit into most any type of family structure, so long as she can receive exercise
and consistency. A fenced yard would be a plus for this outdoorswoman!

We think Prima will keep a smile on your face for years to come. And don't forget that when you adopt
from APA!, you're helping two dogs - the one you're welcoming into your home, and the next dog who
will be able to join our program.

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Do You Scoop the Poop?

You've heard it from us once, and you'll hear it from us many more times: Austin, please scoop the poop! But don't take it from us, take it from the experts.
