Marleaux, Jack Russell/Poodle Mix, 3 Months Old

Jack Russell
Marie McLaren

Fun Fact: Marleaux has a lot of energy. She’ll jump on you for hours trying to lick your face, even if she isn’t getting any reaction out of you.

Did You Know? When trying to teach a puppy good behavior, you should never act with negative emotion, such as anger or frustration — this will only set your puppy up for failure. Instead, Wag! recommends keeping your voice positive and focusing on rewarding good behavior rather than punishing your pup.

Dexter, White Golden Retriever, 2 Years Old / Deedee, Mutt, 10 Years Old

Fun Fact: Dexter and Deedee love to cuddle. They often snuggle up together in the same bed at night!

Did You Know? According to Wag!, dogs like to cuddle to stay warm, to bond and because it releases oxytocin, a feel-good hormone that has calming and comforting effects. Pups get this cuddling instinct from their wild ancestors who relied on each other’s body heat to stay warm. Today, we benefit from all their cuddliness!

Sierra, Golden Retriever, 2 Years Old

Fun Fact: Sierra enjoys watching Hallmark Christmas movies year-round — she’s all about the festivities.

Did You Know? If you own a Golden Retriever, you might notice that he or she barks a lot more than other dogs. By nature, Golden Retrievers have very high energy levels and they tend to be a little noisier than other pups. Thanks to Wag! we know that one likely explanation for why your golden is barking so much is that he or she wants attention. Goldens are very social beings so be prepared to give them the love that they deserve if you get one.
