In Bino veritas! Bino is a fun youngster with a squishy face who's eagerly awaiting his forever home.

After he first arrived at APA!, Bino was a little down in the dumps, but he quickly turned around and has adapted beautifully to his new environment. Bino has really blossomed at the shelter, but we think he'll really thrive once he finds his new home!

Bino is a fun, affectionate, active pup who loves to be near his people. He likes to show off his handsome face and has no problem getting snuggled in for a selfie. He loves being outside playing chase, mixing it up with his toys, playing tug of war and chasing balls.

Bino has lived in a home before, so he knows the general rules of a house. He's perfectly house-trained, knows sit, down and shake (with both paws!) and has great leash manners. This sharp pup is very treat motivated so training is easy, and he really seems to enjoy learning new commands. He's even is in APA!'s Total Obedience Program, which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Bino has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! Bino is learning skills like sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called.

Once Bino successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Bino is working 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 Bino 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

Smart, loyal and a whole lot of fun, this affectionate guy will make a wonderful companion to some lucky person. Come meet Bino!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 11:30AM-6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
