Daphne is a multi-colored (tan, black, white, some pink) hound mix puppy who’s around 5 months old. Her middle name is Fun, as in capital F.
She absolutely loves toys, whether it’s a ball or a squeaky stuffed toy, and will entertain herself for hours chewing and playing with the toy (she even tosses it up in the air). It’s very entertaining to watch her play.
At the same time, her focus on toys also allows her to be very well, toy-motivated. That is, she is highly trainable, only you use the toy instead of food as a reward. She’s also food motivated, and sometimes it’s hard to tell which one she is more motivated about, but it doesn’t really matter. It just means that she’ll be a star pupil in obedience training classes and may appreciate agility classes.
She knows ‘sit’ and apparently, ‘be happy’ 🙂
She also has those melt-your-heart puppy eyes.
If you find yourself charmed by Daphne (don’t worry, it’s happened to all of us volunteers here!), please come visit her in Kennel 36. For more information on Daphne, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
