Ian has a zest for life that's hard to beat. He's spunky, eager to please and ready to go! It's hard to believe this adorable pup hasn't found his family yet. Ian is a bouncy ball of fun and wiggles who can't choose between chasing toys and getting in your lap. If he could have his way, he'd be able to give you kisses and chew on a tennis ball at the same time. He's a bouncy, healthy boy, but not hyper; he will be happy to play or just snuggle up. Ian is an intelligent boy who looks his people in the eye and seems to understand what they're saying. He is still discovering the ins and outs of the world, but he's ready to learn-especially if there's treats involved. Ian is as clever as he is cute! Ian is in APA's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test! Ian has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in APA's CGC program learn to sit and down, walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told 'free,' and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Ian after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free!

Come meet him and see if he's your idea sidekick.
