Joy is a little bit on the shy and nervous side initially but will warm up quickly to new people. She likes to cuddle up on the couch with her humans, and she loves playing with her toys and enjoys fetching them and bringing them back to you to throw again. She likes walks at the park. Busy roads with loud cars and trucks driving by too close to her make her a little nervous.

Wish is a typical active boy who loves playing with toys and running around in the yard. He likes trying new things, and after two tries at walking up and down the basement step, he is a pro. Wish knows the commands "no," "back," "come" and "good puppy." He is also very treat- and praise-motivated and loves receiving cuddles and belly rubs. He loves to play outside and runs around with a stick in his mouth.
