Fred: Party of one! This boy is just SO happy and excited about life, and to be around him means you will be smiling and laughing a lot more! His favorite activity is fetch, and it will be your favorite activity as well...few things are more adorable than seeing him bounce all the way to fetch the ball.

Between his play bows, hilarious expressions, and his curly tail, there is a lot to love about this boy. His happy outlook is good for the soul. Fred is house-trained and has joined APA!'s TOP (Total Obedience Training) dog training program where he's working on learning commands (like sit, down, and place) and his leash skills. He's a smart boy who loves treats, he's expected him to pick up on these skills right away.

Fred loves people, toys and treats....well, everything really. Fred is enthusiastic about whatever is happening at any given moment. Everything's a party for Fred, and he wants to invite you to the party! Set up an appointment with APA to come meet this special guy.


INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
