Steve Martin might be the funniest dog at APA! He is a dream to hang out with - the perfect brindle blend of athlete and couch potato. If you want to fetch or tug or jog... so does he. If you want to binge watch comedy specials... so does he.

Steve is a nice guy that doesn't love a surprise. He wants to see your friends coming, but once he does, he's quick to love them because this guy wants an audience.

Steve's residual puppy energy shows up when he starts demanding the spotlight. He just needs a consistent and firm friend to let him know he can't always be center stage. He has skills like sit and shake, and he is a dream to take on a long walk. He will count on you to keep him a safe distance from other dogs when you are out and about because they aren't his biggest fans.

Ideally, Steve would love a big safe yard, a lifetime supply of tennis balls and squeaky toys, and people that can devote some time into teaching him how to be a better boy. He's ready to take the stage.

What That Animal Rescue Show Means to APA!

Almost a year ago, we were approached by a film crew about a super top secret docuseries being produced by none other than the Austin film legend, Richard Linklater. All we knew about its focus was “t...
