Fun Fact: Orso holds an American Kennel Club “Canine Good Citizen” title and he’s a registered therapy dog with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He also enjoys shopping at Sephora.

Did You Know? “Orso” means “bear” in Italian. We’re all about dogs named as other animals. Check out last year’s most popular dog names here for some inspo in case you get a new puppy in 2019.

Parker, Bernese Mountain Dog, 2 Years Old

Parker Schaefer

Fun Fact: Parker is the official mascot for the Loveland Ski Area in Colorado. We can see why — we’d take a ski trip there just to cuddle with him!
Did You Know? If you’ve never heard of skijoring, you might want to get acquainted. It’s a winter sport that combines cross country skiing with dog sledding. Dog and human are connected to each other via a rope and two harnesses (one for the dog and one for the human). As you ski, you’re also pulled forward by your pup. Sound a little unpredictable, but maybe worth the try if you’re somewhat of a daredevil! [Swirled]

Kona, Australian Labradoodle, 4 Months Old

Fun Fact: Kona’s favorite things include belly rubs and playing fetch! Kona’s also a peanut butter-lover — she hasn’t jumped on the almond butter bandwagon … yet!

Did You Know? While the Australian labradoodle began as a simple mix between two dog breeds (a standard or miniature poodle and a Labrador retriever) through multiple generations this designer dog breed has evolved to become a combo of six different breeds. Most Australian Labradoodles are now a cross between a standard or miniature poodle, a Labrador retriever, an English cocker spaniel, an American cocker spaniel, an Irish water spaniel and a curly-coated retriever.
