June Bug has a lovely warm chocolate color and a warm smile to match. She came to us through Hurricane Harvey and has been a very good sport about everything. She's friendly and outgoing towards people and polite (if a bit reserved) with other dogs. She prefers to play with humans, always bowing at their feet and looking for belly rubs.

June Bug is house-trained and loves going for walks. Athletic and inquisitive, she enjoys getting regular exercise. June Bug is very people focused and responds well to correction. She might even be a candidate for some dog relay or other competition if that's your fancy, but she mostly wants to please her people.

June Bug is learning many ways to make her owner happy in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. In fact, she recently became TOP Dog Ready, which means she has already learned all the skills in her training plan. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP Dog, June Bug works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! Dogs in the program learn skills including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "Place, which means they will go to a specific place in your home on command.

June Bug has worked 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

June Bug is a gorgeous, well-rounded girl with floppy ears, a derpy grin, and a huge heart. Who could resist?
