 Pup #1 Black Tri Male


Puppy instantly saw the Tester and sniffed in their direction. He then slowly made his way over to the Tester and crawled up onto their lap for a quick cuddle and pet. The Puppy then took off to explore and sniff around. Puppy was more interested in getting to know the Tester then playing with the tug toy. He climbed back onto the Testers lap and licked the Testers chin gently. Puppy followed the Tester father back with his tail wagging slowing, looking for further direction. He became distracted when turning back so Tester called out "Here Puppy" and the puppy raced back over to the Testers side. Puppy has an average pain tolerance. He gave a small whimper and tried to get away from the Tester and situation. Puppy loves affection and gave the Tester BIG slobbery kisses all over their face. He gently placed his paws on the Testers face, trying to get even closer. Puppy enjoyed being cradled. He moved in close, snuggling his nose into the Testers armpit, very relaxed and calm. Puppy did not mind being picked up, elevated or being handled in different ways, trusting the Tester. Puppy was able to follow the sound with his eyes and gave a little pounce to the ground, ready to play. Puppy again put his paws gently onto the Tester's face to receive his kisses and returned them with more BIG kisses. Puppy could not be intimidated by the Tester and would approach the Tester, eager for attention. Puppy immediately squirmed, flipping himself over when the Tester tried to restrain him. On the 2nd attempt, the Puppy laid back for the duration, content. When the Tester fell, the Puppy looked over for a second, but showed no interest in the Tester. Puppy found a piece of wood to chew on and continued to sniff around, even chased his own tail for amusement until Tester got back up.




 

 Pup #2 Black Tri Male


Puppy entered the testing area with his nose to the ground ready to explore his new surroundings, tail wagging fast. He did not notice the Tester sitting in the corner. Tester called out to the Puppy "Here Puppy" and the Puppy looked over, gave a little whimper then turned away, back to sniffing around. Tester went over to the Puppy, who then got too excited to play with the tug toy. Puppy bounced around the Tested happily enjoying the attention. Puppy eagerly followed the Tester, getting right underfoot, tail always wagging fast.  Puppy showed low pain tolerance. He quickly whimpered and wiggled himself away from the Testers reach. Puppy recovered quickly and raced back over to the Tester, climbing onto their lap. He put his paws on the Testers face and nibbled their chin happily. Puppy did not seem to like being cradled. He kept rolling his eyes back looking for a way down. Puppy did stay calm while being elevated and became more comfortable in the Testers arms overtime.     Puppy quickly ran right towards the sound, tail wagging excitedly. He stopped directly in front of the toy, waiting for further instructions. Puppy acted a little puzzled when the Tester first kisses him. The Puppy returned the affection with gentle kisses, putting his paws on the Testers face to get closer. Puppy was not intimidated by the Tester. He eagerly sat in front of the Tester, waiting to be petted. Puppy gave a tiny whimper when the Tester tried to restrain him so the Tester gave him a light pat on the head and the Puppy settled right down, calm as can be. When the Tester fell to the floor, the Puppy ran straight over, climbed over the testers legs/ knees from behind, wagging his tail. Puppy then circled the Tester sniffing the ground and then stopped and laid down on the Testers feet until they responded.



 

 Pup #3 Black Bi Male


The pup saw the Tester and immediately "crawled" over to say hello, his tail wagging fast, super happy. He sat beside the Tester offering big kisses and then tried to climb up onto the Testers lap for some more love and affection. Puppy instigated a game of tug a war, using his front paws to reach for the toy, crawling and making pouncing movements. He climbed onto the Testers lap with the toy wanting the Tester to play with him. Puppy would not follow the Tester no matter how much the Tester called or coaxed. Puppy was very interested in his new environment, wanting to sniff around and explore every corner. Puppy eventually made it back to the Tester and laid down beside the Tester, calmly accepting their affection. He got excited when the Tester spoke to him and sat up to give little kisses.  Puppy has an average pain tolerance. He gave a quick cry and then just sat there like "why did you do that?". Puppy loved to be cradled and cooed. He just stared deeply into the Testers eyes, offering more kisses and chin nibbles. Puppy pawed the air in the direction of the sound and then stood up and ran towards the sound, with his tail wagging fast. Puppy eagerly accepted the Testers kisses and started to really warm up and became even more playful. Puppy loved to pounce around a play with the Tester. The Puppy was not intimidated by the Tester and started eagerly following the Tester around, getting underfoot, almost tripping the Tester, puppy panting with excitement. Puppy stayed pretty calm and relaxed when being restrained and did not mind being elevated or handled in different ways. The Tester falling  startled the Puppy making him cringe and stiffen up. He stared at the Tester for a second and sniffed the air. Puppy then went over to the Tester, sniffed their feet and climbed onto the Testers belly and started to cry until the Tester responded.
