Puppy raced over to greet the Tester with no hesitate, with her tail wagging fast. She reached the Tester and crawled up onto their lap while licking the Testers hands, eagerly accepting their affection. Puppy chased the tug toy around in circles, pouncing at it with her front paws. She caught the tug toy and brought it back to the Tester, wanting them to play with her. Puppy continued to play, becoming more and more interested. She tugged the toy, but would quickly let go for the tester to throw the toy for her to retrieve. Puppy showed an average pain tolerance. She pulled away while nipping at the Testers hand. Once the Tester let go, puppy crawled back onto the Testers lap, like nothing had happened. Puppy was very eager for affection. She wagged her tail happily and then rolled onto her back for a belly rub, while licking the Testers hands. When the Tester cradled the puppy, she gave the Tester lots of eye contact and stayed calm and content. The Tester tickled her belly, causing her back legs to twitch. Puppy turned her head slightly from side to side when being elevated but stayed calm and relax until she was let down. She then went off on her own to lay in a corner, but quickly came back when the Tester called "Here puppy". Puppy eagerly accepted the Testers kisses, giving lots of kisses and gentle love bites back, her tail wagging really fast. Puppy followed the Tester happily with her tail wagging fast, but stayed back far enough to watch the Tester closely for further instruction. Puppy heard the loud sound, pulling her ears back slightly then got up and went to sniff the keys curiously. Puppy was slightly intimidated by the Tester, pulling her ears back, but slowly wagged her tail, and sat still waiting for the Tester to approach her. Puppy accepted being restrained by the Tester for half of the test and then started to whine softy and squirmed until she was let go. Puppy was laying down when the Tester fell. She sat right up and looked over at the Tester for a few seconds before slowly walking over to investigate. She stopped and sniffed the Testers feet, then she walked around the Tester and stopped at the Testers hands to give them a couple of licks. She then went to the Testers face and started to lick them furiously and bit their nose, making them respond.



 Pup #3 Male Blue Merle



The moment the puppy saw the Tester, he ran straight over to greet them. He stopped in front of the Tester and gently placed his paws on the Testers chest so that he could reach to give the Tester some kisses on the face before laying down beside the Tester for some affection. Puppy chased the tug toy, trying really hard to catch it, pouncing with his feet and snapping at it with his teeth. When the puppy caught the tug toy, he shook it hard in the air, but then brought it back to the Testers lap so that he could chew on the toy. The Tester was able to easily take the toy back away from the puppy so that they could throw it. Puppy raced off after the toy and brought it back to the Tester, eager to play more. Puppy has an above average pain tolerance, only reacting at the end, nipping at the Testers hand to stop. Puppy became more and more excited and comfortable with the Tester as the Test went on. He started to play rough when the Tester tried to give him some affection, jumping up at the Tester, giving love bites and wagging his tail excitedly. Puppy resisted being cradled. He scratched and bit at the Tester's hands until he was let go and then went off by himself to lay in a corner. Puppy raced back when the Tester called "Here puppy" and crawled onto the Testers lap for more love. Puppy did not mind being elevated and stayed calm until the very end where he whine softly to be put back down. Puppy eagerly accepted the Testers kisses, giving lots of big kisses back, but got a bit rough with his love bites to the Testers chin. Puppy raced after the Tester as they moved around the room. He got right underfoot, jumping up and the Testers legs, making it hard for the Tester to walk fast. Puppy was slightly startled by the loud sound, resulting in the puppy getting the hiccups. He then confidently went over to the keys to investigate. Puppy was not intimidated by the Tester and stood eagerly waiting for the Tester to approach him, wagging his tail fast. Puppy instantly struggled when the Tester tried to restrain him. He thrashed his head from side to side, whimpering softly and then started kicking the Testers hands with his back feet until the Tester let him go. Puppy raced right over to the Tester when they fell to the ground. He sniffed the Testers feet, circled the Tester twice, while sniffing the air and then curled up back at the Testers feet until the Tester responded.
