5-year-old Bantam Bulldog


“We’ve had to train him not to tug on the battle ropes while people are working out.”


6-year-old Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier



“Everybody I know says their Wheaten hates to run. But that’s Buster’s favorite thing to do.”


5-year-old Vizsla


“He’s manipulative. He has somehow convinced us to always add a treat to his dog food.”


3-year-old Basenji Mix



“When we were meeting with him at the shelter, we went out to play fetch with him. My wife threw a fastball and he plucked it right out of the air. I said, ‘Yep, he’s the one.’”


4-year-old Black Mouth Cur Mix



“He gravitates toward women.”


3-year-old Double Doodle



“He gets carsick. He doesn’t throw up, but he will sit in the back and drool.”


4-year-old Belgian Malinois


“His discharge papers from the military said, ‘Unruly, but zero aggression.’ That’s him 100 percent. He’s crazy high energy all the time, but when you pet him, he just wants to lean into you and be in your lap.”


10-year-old Border Collie



“She loves to fetch. If you run out of toilet paper in the bathroom, she’ll bring you a new roll.”
