Dogs + Characteristics

  • Dogs, like people, need mental and physical exercise. They crave playful interaction with their peers. Going to the dog park will allow them to see, hear, and smell new things as they exercise with other dogs. Active dogs, like active, people, are healthier. So, “Gather ‘round!” Take a trip to the park.

  • Pug

    No hyperactive ankle-biter, the Pug has a stable and noble way, befitting a much larger dog - and a giant personality to match.

  • A barking mop on springs, the Puli is a perky and personable dog that gets lots of second looks for his Rastafarian locks.

  • A herder through and through, the Pyr Shep is an energetic dog that needs a job. They become very attached to their owners, with a keen sense of their mood.

  • Observant, devoted, and lively, Ratties make great companions and family dogs. They love to play, but they want to be with you, so they suit families who want a friend and playmate.

  • While hunting is still his first love, the Redbone Coonhound is a laid back hound generally content to lounge around the house and yard.

  • Despite the fact that early breeders developed the dog as a formidable hunter and defender of property, Rhodesian lovers stay with the breed because he is also a fine companion animal, intelligent, playful and affectionate.

  • The Rottweiler is protective, but well-bred representatives are loving companions with a noble head, swaggering gait and the general air of a champion.

  • Confident, fearless, and incredibly devoted, Russells have become a very popular companion. They love to chase, explore and dig, and need outlets for these natural behaviors.

  • Calm and placid, the Saint Bernard does not take up as much room in a house or apartment as a much smaller but more active dog.
