Dash is a playful boy who can't decide what he loves best - cuddling up on top of his human friends or curling up under his blankets. For sure, he wants to be as close to his people as possible, with lots of snuggling. Then he'll stare at them and paw until they lift a blanket so he can snuggle under it.

This rambunctious boy also loves runs in the backyard, and going for the leash walks he does so well. He can have a little anxiety about strange things he sees, but he would like to meet and play with other dogs he sees. And he's done well on playdates with other APA! dogs his size. Back home, he loves playing tug-o-war and playing with his ball and stuffy toy. Then he's ready for his naps, preferably under his blankets.

He is a smart boy who comes when called, and answers to sit, stay, down, shake and free. And he does very well in his crate, and also can roam the house nicely, doing fine when home alone. Plus, he's very well house-trained.

This loving cuddle bug would thrive in a home with a backyard to run in, preferably with a wooden privacy fence that would keep him from seeing those strange things he sometimes fears. He may do best as the only pet, but has done well with other pups. And he loves all adults and responsible teenagers, especially those who can help him relax. Come meet him - offer him a blanket and he'll follow you home.
