Fun Fact: Bowie’s favorite pastimes include begging for food and chasing the vacuum cleaner.  

Did You Know? Golden Retrievers are part of the “Sporting Group” of dog breeds, which means that they need a lot of exercise. These natural-born athletes are always down to get moving, whether it be by going on long hikes, playing fetch or taking a swim. [American Kennel Club]

Koda, Siberian Husky Mix (Rescue Dog), 5 Months Old

Kathleen Webber

Fun Fact: Koda lives with not one but two cats. Her mom and dad think the pup is starting to become BFFs with them!

Did you know? Just because your puppy is chasing your cat doesn’t mean they don’t get along. “Most dogs will chase rapidly moving objects,” so if your kitten gets frightened and runs away, your pup will feel instinctually bound to chase after him. [WebMD]

Elby, Yorkie-Pomeranian Mix, 7 Years Old

Fun Fact: Elby will always stop whatever he’s doing to give you a high five. He’s a team player all the way.

Did You Know? Pomeranians (or “Poms”) were once much larger dogs. But in the mid-19th century, England’s Queen Victoria had them bred to their current size so that they could better fit into her lap. [Animal Planet]
