"OMG we're friends! BEST friends! We just met but I love you!!"

This silly and adorable lady is up for anything. And me mean anything. Keke is a real party animal and she comes with a super high energy level. She loves playing fetch more than anything, but she'd also make a great hiking or running partner.

Keke is very dog-social and a playgroup rockstar. She's actually recommended to go home with another energetic dog, since she loves having another pup to mix it up with, and you'll appreciate the assist in helping get her ya-yas out. She's also a big fan of squeaky toys, so make sure you stock up on those.

This sweet girl has never met a stranger and isn't shy about letting them know how excited she is to meet them. On top of being house and crate-trained, she's also a very smart girl and is coming a long way in APA!'s Total Obedience Program, which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Keke has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be!

Keke is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "place", which means she will go to a specific place in your home on command.

Once Keke successfully completes all the skills on her training plan, she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Keke 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 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

Keke would love a home with another pup who can help her burn off all that energy along with active people who will get her out for adventures. A backyard to romp in would be lovely too. Come meet this fun pup!
