How APA! describes Mattie: Well-behaved, playful, pretty

What APA! says about Mattie:

Mattie takes commands really well, is easily corrected and treat-motivated. Mattie has a moderate- to high-energy level and would probably enjoy being with someone who is fairly active. She has a beautiful spotted coat and loves to "wiggle dance" and give nice warm kisses when she's happy.

She's good with kids but is a bit mouthy and would benefit from a basic obedience class. She also needs to be the only pet in the household.

Why Mattie deserves your love:

Mattie loves tennis balls, chili and cheese (who doesn't!). In addition to her quirky personality, Mattie loves rope toys and is excellent at playing fetch. Chili, cheese and she's a good dancer? Sounds like a perfect dog.
