"Rub my belly!"

Fuzz is a very friendly and affectionate pup, and this happy guy never stops wiggling! Fuzz wiggles for friends and strangers alike, hoping there are some belly rubs in the offing. And this charming cuddlebug likes to get in nice and close. He'll wiggle into any nook and cranny available next to you on the couch and loves being held in bed when you sleep, wiggling himself right under your arm. If the bed's not an option, Fuzz won't put up too much of a fuss - he'll sleep in his crate and then get back to cuddling in the morning.

But Fuzz is much more than just a first-rate snuggler - he also has quite a bit of energy to burn and would likely make a great jogging and adventure buddy. He's also does well in playgroup with his canine pals at the shelter and has hung out with a volunteer's resident dogs on a sleepover. And when he wasn't playing with his doggie friends, he got himself right back to snuggling.

Fuzz is also thriving in APA!'s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program where he works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in the CGC program learn to walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, how to greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told "free," and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Fuzz after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free! Check out a video about CGC: https://vimeo.com/89434193

Fuzz is more than ready for his forever home, and he can't wait to wiggle his way into your heart. Come meet him!
