Say hello to the cutest dogs of the week.

Herschel, Border Collie/Labrador Mix, 4 Months Old

Border Collie
Callan Phillips

Fun Fact: Herschel is one smart puppy — he can open most closed doors.

Did You Know? Even if your dog isn’t naturally able to open doors on his own, you can teach him how to open them with click training and treats. Keep in mind that French door handles are obviously a lot easier for your pup to manipulate than round ones. If you have a pup who’s as smart as Herschel, you may even be able to teach him how to close the door behind him. Sounds like a pretty cool party trick! [Wag!]

Radler, Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier Mix, 4 Years Old

Fun Fact: Radler was rescued in Macedonia and traveled back with her pawrents to California. She’s now a Cali girl and loves the sunny weather and daily walks on the beach. Who wouldn’t?!

Did You Know? Approximately 1.6 million shelter dogs are adopted each year within the United States. And almost 3.3 million stray pups enter animal shelters nationwide every year with the hopes of finding a forever home. [ASPCA]

Missy, American Pit Bull Terrier Mix, 2 Years Old (Up For Adoption)

Fun Fact: When she first meets new people, Missy can be a little quiet. But give her a few treats and scratch her neck, and she’ll be your new BFF in no time.

Did You Know? If you’re dealing with a shy pup, brushing her can be a great way to bond with her and create a closer connection. If your pup likes to be groomed, brushing will also help her relax. You’ll notice that your pooch is getting more comfortable with you if her eyes and body muscles relax and she starts to lean in the direction of your brush. [Pet Central by Chewy]
