Taurus came to APA! with signs of a difficult start to life - scars and a cautious, pessimistic outlook. Today, he's putting that behind him as he discovers that the world isn't such a bad place after all.

Now in foster care with his brother, this sweet boy has learned that yards are fun to play in, toys are great to play with and other dogs are great playmates. And he's learned that humans are good playmates, too. 

Taurus needs some time to warm up to new human friends, but now that he's learned to trust his foster mom, he's found that being petted and loved on are wonderful things. He follows her room to room, very interested in what she's doing. 

And he's a smart, curious boy, sitting for treats, giving "paw" and learning to mind the "sit" command in just a few minutes. He comes when called, is crate trained and seems house trained.

A home with adults and older kids who can continue his training, give him lots of exercise and, above all, lots of love will be ideal for this playful, adorable boy. Come meet him and see if he isn't perfect for 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.
