San Diego approaches life with such enthusiasm and energy that she will be sure to excite you too! She's a huge snuggle bug, but also loves to go on walks and sniff everything. She also loves getting outside to play fetch or to spy out squirrels.

Inside, San D will happily lay down and take a nap while you get work done or come lay down on the couch with you while you relax. She's really smart and eager to please so will eagerly perform "sit," "shake," "down," and would be happy to learn more! San D is also working on her leash manners and would love an owner who will continue her training. She's a member of APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP) which is based on the AKC's Canine Good Citizen test. You can learn more about APA!'s Canine Good Citizen program (on which TOP was based) here: https://vimeo.com/89434193.

This sweet senior is looking for a low-key forever home where she can get lots of love. San Diego is house-trained and freely roams the home when her fosters are out. She is always polite and does well napping when they are away. Given time to get acquainted, she might be able to live with a fur sibling or some kids. In foster care, she has become friendlier with cats, her reactivity to them decreasing, showing fair potential to live with one someday. San Diego also lived with young children in her younger years and we believe she might do better with older kids (so she doesn't knock them over when she gets excited!).
