Turn down the lights, turn up the music, adopt Prima, and then dance like nobody's watching!

This prima ballerina is ready to be your #1 dance partner and she has the moves that just won't quit. And when you're done shaking your groove thing, she is more than happy to snuggle up and listen to all of your hopes and dreams, loves and fears, laughter and tears...she's essentially the perfect best friend.

Prima may be approaching her senior years, but she has plenty of love to give and will keep you smiling for many more years to come. Whether you're looking for an active hiking buddy, a fun play partner at home, a cuddle buddy, or simply someone to talk to, Prima can fit the bill and make you feel like a million bucks. And since she's past the puppy shenanigan years there's no need to worry about house-training or crate-training; she even comes pre-loaded with basic obedience skills and keeps them fresh with her volunteer friends as a TOP (Total Obedience Program) Dog at APA!. Click here to check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193.

If you're looking for someone to stay by your side, rest their head in your lap, and stare up at you with a pair of soulful amber puppy dog eyes, click that big blue button now and get ready for your life to be changed for the better. Prima can't wait to meet you and make a new friend for life!



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.

Come meet your new best friend
