My story

While we don't know the path that brought Beluga to APA!, we do know there's nothing but blue skies ahead for this handsome boy!

"Beluga loved doing the puzzle toy since there were treats in it. He relaxed a little when I gave him a rawhide and took his time eating it. He's a sweetheart!" says his friend Karen, who recently took him on a field trip.

-Let's go for a car ride! When the weather is hot, Beluga loves to climb into the car and feel the cool wind over his ears.
-Did someone say snacks?! You can teach Beluga plenty of new tricks when there's food involved! He's very food motivated and loves to snuffle out treats.
-Beluga is a great co-exister with dogs. He's definitely over the wild puppy energy and would do well with another senior pup or mild younger dog.

This senior boy is ready to retire into the lap of luxury. Available in our main kennels at Town Lake, come meet him in person today!
