Velma is an 8-week old pup who loves exploring and playing with everyone. She does become slightly hesitant when introduced to new places, but once she has time to adjust, she is fiercely independent. Like her namesake, Velma is intelligent and studies the routines of the house. Velma is a quiet pup and makes growling noises when playing with her sister and occasionally whines to be picked up, but she hasn't barked.

Triumph is spunky, yet goofy and sweet. He loves to play with resident dogs but has fun chewing on toys. This pup knows basic commands, and he is working on potty- and crate-training. He also loves playing in bathtubs and water. 

Maeve is an extremely sweet and happy pup. Initially, Maeve is on the shy side. She warms up quickly, and then transforms into a bouncy, happy girl. She is quiet, well-behaved, gentle and lovable. She is learning to walk on leash and has made great strides in a few days. Maeve is crate-trained, although her preference is to be near her people. She takes treats gently and seems to be food motivated.
