Bueller loves you already, and you haven't even met! This five-year-old pup has endless love to give his humans and is looking for his forever home where he gets to cuddle, play, bask in the sun, nap, and run around all day. Bueller's favorite past-times include tug of war, chewing plastic toys apart as fast as he can, and protecting the garden from squirrels with his barks!
Bueller is fully crate trained and knows all of his basic commands. With his love of treats, it should be easy to teach him as many commands as you want! Treats will also be your go-to to get him to stop barking at your mailman or the movers across the street.

Bueller is a playful guy with so much love for humans that he should not live with other dogs- he'd get jealous of the attention they get! He gets along well with everyone from friends to maintenance men, although he can get a little too excited and jump up when he meets new people. He does well with teens but has too much energy and excitement to live with younger children. He would love to run around all day and train with a teenager who also loves to get their energy out through activity!

If you are interested in adopting Bueller, you will have to attend some walking trainings with APA! This guy gets excited by cars and other dogs while on a leash, so APA will provide you with all the tips you need to have seamless walking experiences with him. He likely would not do well at a dog park or an off-leash park where other dogs are around, but that just gives you more time to get to know him one-on-one!

Bueller is truly one of the sweetest, silliest, most playful, and eager to learn guys out there! Adopting him will bring an exercise buddy, a nap partner, an alarm system, and a friend into your home all in one!
