Kahlua is a very easy-to-please girl who's quite content to hang out with her human friends on a chair. If they give her some petting all day, even better!
This loving and lovable girl does like going for nice walks with her people, and she's improving her leash training. And if she gets to fetch tennis balls and play in the water on her walks, she's one happy girl.
Kahlua can be selective about choosing doggie friends. She goes to playgroup, but can be assertive, so a meet-and-greet with a potential dog companion is always advisable. And she'll probably do best in a cat-free home since she'll chase them if given a chance. All in all, she may do best as the only pet in a home.
This smart, confident girl answers to the "sit" command and seems to be house trained.
Kahlua has been known to be protective of her housemates, so she may do best in an adult-only home or one with older kids where she can receive structure and continued training - and that exercise and trips to explore that she loves. Come take this girl for a walk and get a preview of how much fun she can bring to your home.
And remember, all APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And 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.
