Aliases: Addie Taylor, pumpkin spice, pouty face

Breed: Beagle/Dachshund mix

Favorite toy: Anything with a squeaker

Owners: Marsha & Joe

ASPCA personality Type: Busy Bee – I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.

Appearance:  A

Addie is almost three but I’m sure she’ll always look like a puppy. It’s nearly impossible to resist those big puppy eyes!

Friendliness (People): B

Friendliness (Dogs): B

She loves to play with other dogs but her bark doesn’t sound like it! She’s a very LOUD player but her other dog friends know this.

Special Talents: C

She’s wonderful with “leave it” which is a must when you’re constantly dropping non-dog friendly items on the floor, however, she almost never comes when called. I like to blame this on the beagle side of her not my poor training.

Begging for Food: B

Well, I rarely give in but my husband is a different story. Addie does a great job during dinner and sits on a rug in another room until we’re done eating. She really begs for snacks though!

Other important information:

Addie’s face is so expressive it’s as if you can read her mind. She gets pouty if she wants to go out but we won’t let her. When I pack my bags for a work trip she gets sad and whines so I won’t leave. And, there’s nothing like an Addie welcome when you get home, whether you’ve been away for three days or ten minutes!
Sometimes Addie just needs a snuggle and she curls up on my lap. She’s definitely a sweet puppy.

Overall Grade: B


Aliases: Pops and Kaikai

Breed: Chihuahuas

Favorite toy: Pops – stuffed carrot, Kaiser is too fancy for toys!

Owners: Andrea & Mike

ASPCA personality Type: Constant Companion – Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side, and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

Appearance:  A

Everyone loves the little guys!

Friendliness (People): D

Friendliness (Dogs): D

Kaiser shakes in his doggybed the whole time we have guests but Pops wants to sit in everyone’s lap.

Special Talents: D

We haven’t really trained them, but Pops does play fetch with us and his toy carrot!

Begging for Food: C

These guys rule the roost! So when they give us “the look” they get whatever they’re asking for.

Other important information:

Overall Grade: C


Aliases: Jet Jet

Breed: Rough Collie

Favorite toy: Lotso Stuffed Animal

Owners: Jackie and Greg

ASPCA personality Type: Busy Bee – I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.

Appearance:  A

He is a handsome little guy, except everybody thinks he’s a girl. Everyone tells me that I have a beautiful dog. They pretty much think he’s Lassie.

Friendliness (People): B

Friendliness (Dogs): A

My little Jet is a lover.

Special Talents: A

We are in the Advanced class at Petsmart so he can get Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification. I am thinking about getting him into Agility because he loves to learn.   As far as tricks/commands go, he knows: Sit, Wait, Stay, Down, Bang!, Bow, Spin, Up, Roll over, Kiss, Touch, Cross (paws), Speak, Quiet, Leave it, Take it, Drop it, Fetch, Come, No, Hop up (on the couch) and Left (we are working on Right). My next goal is to get him to put his toys away.

Begging for Food: B

He knows he doesn’t get my food at mealtimes, but he does get lots of special treats cause he’s a Momma’s Boy. He loves Starbucks whipped cream.

Other important information:

I know I’m biased, but I love my little guy. The picture of him and Greg is from when he was a puppy, 2 months or so. He is 7 months old now.

Overall Grade: A-


Aliases: Buppy, “Who’s a good boy?”

Breed: English Bulldog

Favorite toy: Rawhide Bones

Owner(s): Jamie and Marcelino

ASPCA personality Type: Couch Potato -I’m a relaxed, laid-back kind of dog who enjoys long naps, watching movies, curling up on laps, and walking very short distances from the couch to the food bowl and back.

Appearance:  A

Just look at these cheeks. No one can refuse his Chewbacca like requests for love, attention, or table food!

Friendliness (People): A

Friendliness (Dogs): D

He likes his brother, Miller, and will generally tolerate the presence of other, smaller dogs. However, Winston has a bit of a Napoleon complex and refuses to befriend larger hounds who might be able to successfully question his right to rule the house.

Special Talents: C

Winston, although stubborn, will perform a variety of tricks (if you have the right treat!). He can sit, give paw, lay down, and roll over! He also knows how to wiggle his butt on command (but you have to do it, too!)

Begging for Food: C

YUM! People food! Winston especially loves having parties at his house so he can roam from guest to guest taste-testing food.

Other important information:

Overall Grade:  B-


Aliases:  Sid, musti-poo, grand-baby-boy

Breed: Maltipoo

Favorite toy: Biscuit!  His first favorite.  It’s a beige bean bag dog.

Owner(s): Jennifer

ASPCA personality Type: Constant Companion – Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side, and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

Appearance:  A

Sid looks like a real life teddy bear!  He makes you want to just cuddle!

Friendliness (People): D

Friendliness (Dogs): D

He is friendly and loving if he knows and loves you.  He needs to warm up to strangers.  He is very protective otherwise, and does not do well if strangers come up to pet him.

Special Talents: B

If you say “kiss kiss” he will shower you with puppy kisses!

Begging for Food: C

He will cry, moan and whimper if you’re eating something he really wants (and looks so darn cute doing it!).  He loves cheese and apples!

Other important information:

He is the light of our lives, and we don’t know how we ever lived without him.  He is a joy to come home to at the end of a long day.  He has our heart!

Overall Grade: C+


Aliases:

Breed: Labrador Retriever

Favorite toy: Bones

Owners: Sandy and Peter

ASPCA personality Type: Constant Companion – Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side, and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

Appearance:  B

A little grey around the muzzle, but otherwise as sleek as ever.

Friendliness (People):  B

Friendliness (Dogs):  B

Friendly but very non-aggressive; will check you out and then go back to lying down.

Special Talents: D

Sometimes fetches.

Begging for Food:  A

Lucy doesn’t have to beg–she gets to clean the dishes after dinner every night.

Other important information:

Overall Grade: B


Aliases: Loon, Lunar

Breed: Samoyed

Favorite toy: rope

Owners: Julina

ASPCA personality Type: Busy Bee – I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.

Appearance:  A

It’s hard not to love a dog that is constantly smiling!

Friendliness (People): B

Friendliness (Dogs): A

Loves all people and dogs.

Special Talents: C

She can shake with both paws and do downward-dog on command.

Begging for Food: B

If she sits by her food bowl for long enough, we’re bound to give her some kibble.

Overall Grade: B+


Aliases: Pig

Breed: English Bulldog

Favorite toy: twigs from outside

Owners: Jasmine & Nate

ASPCA personality Type: Couch Potato -I’m a relaxed, laid-back kind of dog who enjoys long naps, watching movies, curling up on laps, and walking very short distances from the couch to the food bowl and back.

Appearance:  A

Agi has a smooshidy face that’s adorable and irresistible!

Friendliness (People): A

Friendliness (Dogs): A

Agi loves attention! In fact when we’re walking her if someone doesn’t acknowledge her she’ll stare them down until they’re out of sight!

Special Talents: F

Unless eating, sleeping, and snoring include talents…Agi has none.

Begging for Food: C

Bulldog…enough said.

Other important information:

Agi is hilarious. We get such joy just from looking at her fat wrinkly face. We wish only to share that with others.

Overall Grade: B


Aliases: The Bins, Binser-buns, The Bear

Breed: Huskador (lab/husky mix)

Favorite toy: Hurley by West Paw

Owners: Kristina & Paul

ASPCA personality Type: Life of the Party – I think everything is fun, interesting and meant for play, especially you. Anything you do, I’ll want to do too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes, and the fun is guaranteed.

Appearance: B

She looks like a slightly fluffy, friendly lab, but she does have a bit of a pinhead.

Friendliness (People): A

Friendliness (Dogs): D

She LOVES people and can’t get enough of them.  At parties, she goes from person to person all night until she flops.  She’s kind of a bully with other dogs, or as she would think, selective with who she likes.  She flunked out of doggy daycare because she wanted to lead the pack, but the pack didn’t buy into her leadership skills.

Special Talents: A

She steals the stage when there are treats to be had.  She knows her left and right paws, plays dead when you go “bang,” and she fetches our Sunday paper from the driveway.  Unless the neighbor’s cat is out…

Begging for Food: C

Sometimes she drools so much she makes a puddle on the floor, so we give in.  It’s the worst with oranges.  She is indiscriminate in her tastes, except when it comes to non-organic lettuce, which is tasted and rejected every time.  However, she also believes that paper is a legitimate food group.

Other important information:

We got Binsey before she made it to the pound from a man who advertised free puppies in the newspaper.  His yellow lab had been a little too friendly with his cousin’s husky.

Overall Grade: B
