    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier. Love-sponge Leggs not only soaks up all the love and affection you give her, but somehow manages to hand back twice as much as she receives. She's in a foster home with five resident dogs and two frisky kitties. A bit shy at first, it took her two days to get a lay of the land, and then she joined in with herd, playing with the big dogs and lying around with the kitties. Leggs is learning some manners, excelling in potty training and is very respectful of every critter's space. But when it's time to rumble she's right in the middle of the mix, playing for hours with her BFF, Luly, a Pyrenees/Anatolian mix. This girl is going to make someone a very happy. Come meet her!

    Muffin

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Muffin is a beautiful young pup with one floppy ear to give him some character. But Muffin doesn't get caught up on his looks. Muffin's got things to do. You see, Muffin's one of those dogs that wants to play ALL OF THE TIME! He's so very excited to meet other playmates, and if there are other dogs around, he's gonna chase them until they play with him! Because of a learning disability, Muffin's attention is difficult to hold, and his vocabulary appears stuck at "stop", "no" and "good boy", though he recently learned "sit" if a treat's involved. Muffin has a lot of energy in all directions at once, and while he may not exactly have object-permanence down, he's an expert in playtime and looks for fun around every corner. Muffin's favorite toys can best be described as "anything moving". He will do zoomies with the resident dog in his foster home or on his own, he enjoys tug of war with stuffed animals and playing "mouth" with his doggie friends. And hold onto those hollowed-out plush toys, because Muffin likes to throw them in the air and catch them. When Muffin finds a favorite plushie, he enjoys cuddling with it and occasionally grooming it. He also loves going on walks, is pretty good on leash and likes to stop a lot to look at stuff, especially if he can't figure out what it is. He's very alert to any weird sounds - if it's moving he should probably go try to play with it! When Muffin does stop moving, that means it's naptime, and he likes to lay on his human for that. He enjoys a good cuddle, but prefers sleeping separate and eats and sleeps overnight in his crate. He likes to kiss feet and hands very gently, and he's particularly fond of his foster's mother and melts into her whenever they interact. As much as he loves people, Muffin often has a difficult time focusing, as he's constantly distracted by the next bit of fun he can see and sometimes seems to be ignoring potential adopters. But out on walks, he introduces himself to everyone he walks past and has an interest in runners (he'd likely make a nice jogging buddy). Overall, Muffin's entire mission in life is playing and finding ways to amuse himself. He also makes adorable "gremlin noises". The ideal home for Muffin would have active people, a playful canine buddy to help burn off his energy, a yard to bound through and an unlimited supply of plushies and balls. If you're ready to be Muffin's forever playmate, come meet this great pup!

    Posted Breed: Australian Kelpie / Mixed. Lola is an absolute love bug who wants to show affection to everyone she meets. Even within her foster family (that consists of ten other dogs!), she gets along with everyone. She does well with cats, is good with the children she encounters when out on walks, and she's great when meeting strangers, especially if they have treats! In fact, there's no one this sweet girl doesn't get along with. Lola has faced some bumps along the road in life and is paralyzed from the waist down, but she has let none of it dampen her spirits or slow her down. She does beautifully in her wheelchair and loves getting out for adventuring (check out her videos). Then when she gets back home, she's happy to scoot around the house following you wherever you go. At night, Lola is happy to curl up in your lap and fall asleep. Although Lola is very adept at getting around in a home environment, flights of stairs would be an issue, so a home or apartment with no stairs or maybe 3 or 4 steps to get up/down would be preferred. Low energy, low maintenance and as gentle as can be, if you're ready to get all the love you can handle, come meet this sweet princess!

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Tyler loves belly rubs, playing 24/7 with his doggie foster sibling, taking long naps, and Kong toys. This feisty boy loves everyone, and if he can lay on them to take his naps, that makes his day! Tyler really loves snuggling with his people. Tyler also really wants your attention, so ignore him and he'll give a little bark to remind you that he's there and also may need a treat. When he gets excited, his ears flop around and he sticks his butt in the air. His foster mom says his facial expressions are to die for! His eyes are the color of amber and green and he makes you fall in love with him every time you make eye contact. Tyler loves playing with his large foster doggie sibling, and they're really good about sharing their toys. He has a lot of energy, but he gets it all out playing with his doggie buddy. And once he's all tuckered out, he's ready to crash and naps frequently throughout the day. You'll always know when Tyler's napping because he's quite the snorer. You'll also know because he'll probably be sleeping on top of you. Tyler is very well-mannered for a young pup and is making good progress on his house-training. His crate-training is also going well as long as toys and treats are part of the bargain, and he sleeps quietly through the night. Chill and playful all in one little baby, Tyler would make a wonderful addition to any number of loving homes, preferably one with a yard for him to run circles in and keep your kids entertained all day. Come meet this perfect pup!

    Saturn

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Saturn is a smart, energetic lovebug who likes to play play play! This goofy guy came into the shelter as a stray, and now he's eager to make being a beloved family dog his full time job! Saturn is basically like a big puppy, except he won't pee on the carpet or chew on your shoes. He's a great alarm clock - he wakes up every morning so happy and ready to take on the day. And he's extra cuddly in the mornings, which makes waking up that much nicer. He'll also keep you company in the bathroom and check on you in the shower to make sure you're ok. Saturn absolutely adores his people, is very affectionate with them and LOVES to cuddle. He prefers to get his ya-yas out through high energy play, so he can spend the evening curled up with you for snuggles. If you sit down, he'll crawl right into your lap and smoosh his face into your chest. He just wants to be as close to you as possible, and you'll know how relaxed he is when the snoring starts (it's loud but adorable)! Saturn has a rough and rowdy play style and generally gets along with other dogs as long as they like to play and wrestle, and he may be able to go home with a well-matched doggie sibling. He's also a total water bug and loves to play in the kiddie pool and chase water from the hose. He makes for a great trail buddy and he absolutely loves playing tug of war, but he's also happy to entertain himself with toys or sunbathe while his people are doing people things. Saturn's a smart pup too and has an adorable eagerness to please his people. He knows sit, down, and shake, he's fully house-trained, can be left home alone without getting into any trouble, is easy to bathe and great in the car. He also loves to run around and show off all the skills he's learning in APA!'s Total Obedience Program! The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Saturn has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! Saturn is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "Place", which means he will go to a specific place in your home on command. Once Saturn successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Saturn is working hard to become a wonderful companion, and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Saturn after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: vimeo/89434193 Saturn connects so deeply with his people and can't wait to find his forever lap to rest his head in. Come meet him!
