The Hero Litter puppies have been spending the last couple of months adjusting to their volunteer puppy raisers’ homes and routines. During this time of settling in, the pups’ temperaments start to come out and really shine.

So what traits have the Hero Litter pups been displaying? Mellow, moxie or somewhere in between, find out from their volunteer puppy raisers…

Hala
Hala

Hala – “It takes both to make a wonderful working dog. Hala’s mellow side is very gentle and loving. Her moxie side allows her to face difficulty (loud noises, strange surfaces, new challenges) with spirit and courage.”

Harpo
Harpo

Harpo – “Harpo is the perfect combination of mellow and moxie. She loves to play and party but also knows how to relax, be calm and she’s starting to understand what working means. She is an easy pup and such a love!”

Harvest
Harvest

Harvest – “Harvest is a little bit mellow and moxie!! Depends on the day. Plus, I am fairly certain, that she is fully aware of how cute she is, so she thinks she deserves special treatment. Overall, she is really sweet and is VERY quick to learn a command which has made working with her lots of fun.”

Holly
Holly

Holly – “Mellow or moxie? Our Miss Holly is all attitude. High energy and curious, she is a little yellow flurry of adventures waiting to happen.”

Hudson
Hudson

Hudson – “Hudson is definitely the middle of the road between mellow and moxie! He’s easy to train with a little stubborn streak. It’s difficult to not laugh at him as he ‘grumbles’ at me when I ask a command of him, that he’s just not feeling. He gets lots of attention and good-boy pats, which seem to motivate him.”

Hoagy
Hoagy

Hoagy  – “Hoagy’s temperament is starting to come out! I define it as being willfully mellow. He is very motivated by attention and food and most certainly has captured our hearts.”

Harbor
Harbor

Harbor – “I would definitely say Harbor is moxie. She is bubbly and happy to see everyone and loves to play, especially with our 12-year-old release dog, Charlie. She loves to sit outside in our back yard and feel the wind blow on her face.”

Thank you to all the puppy raisers for their dedication, love and effort in raising the Hero Litter and for sharing their thoughts on this wonderful group of pups!
