I’d wanted a dog for some time, and after researching different organizations I decided to visit APRA to get a feel for the adoption process as this was my first adoption. I visited on a Saturday and at the very back of the dog section I saw and fell in love with Mandy. After bringing her home 3 months ago it feels like she has always been apart of the family.
Her first day was quite memorable since she was unsure of the couch and had to be coaxed to jump on it. I’m happy to say the couch is now one of her favorite spots to cuddle and take a nap. In the short time she’s been here she has learned sit, down, hand shake, speak and play dead. She loves going to the nearby dog parks and often gives the bigger dogs a run for their money. Our daily walks have quickly become my favorite part of the day, and since she is still a puppy it’s fun to watch her discover/investigate new things. Also to my surprise she is an avid bird watcher and can sit for hours watching the sky.
I could not have asked for a better or cuter companion! Thanks to all at APRA! ~ Dee S.
