Ludwig is a handsome, fun, affectionate and intelligent pup. He has bright eyes, a happy smile, and his wagging nubbin of a tail is a delight! While he can be shy with new people, Ludwig's superpower is that he loves his humans with all his heart. He forms bonds and becomes attached very closely to his friends. Ludwig really knows how to enjoy his time with his person by going for leisurely strolls, having toy time or just hanging on the couch and snuggling.

Ludwig is great at solving mysteries. On walks, Ludwig loves to check out all the clues left by other dogs. If you drop your snack and can't find it, Ludwig will put his detective skills to work and sniff it out. But he doesn't work for free. He expects payments in hotdogs, burgers or puppachinos!

Ludwig is VERY enthusiastic about training and thinks training sessions are the best kind of playtime. It's no wonder he rose to the TOP of his class so quickly and even got to join the advanced training class. Ludwig makes sure to keep training fun with his goofy expressions and adorable ways. He has had hundreds of hours of training and always wants to learn more. So it should come as no surprise that Ludwig is TOP Dog Ready, which means he has already learned all the basic commands such as sit, down and come.

The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As part of APA's Total Obedience Program, you can work with APA! staff to continue to build a training relationship with Ludwig 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

Beauty. Brains. Personality. Ludwig has it all! He'd love to be the only child in the home (human or furry) and a family who will continue his training. In return, Ludwig promises to keep you entertained and shower you with endless love and affection. Come meet this amazing pup!

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
