Woody is the best of both worlds - an enthusiastic workout partner and a quiet pal with whom to spend an evening in. Look into his big, beautiful eyes and you won't be able to resist making him yours.
This handsome guy has been a wonderful guest so far in his foster home. He gets along well with the resident dog, hasn't had any accidents inside, goes into his crate easily, and lifts his people's spirits by sweetly resting his giant head in their laps for pets. Give him his favorite rope toy and he'll charm you with his puppy-like playfulness.
As he's quite strong and gets excited about going for walks, Woody has been known to pull on his leash. He will need an adopter who will continue training him to be the best he can be, and who will also reciprocate his love. Could that be you? Meet Woody today!
It should be noted that Woody has tested positive for heartworms. It's a treatable condition, and the cost is included in the adoption fee. You can read about heartworm treatment here: http://www.austinpetsalive.org/heartworms/
All APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And remember, when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
