Mandy, Dexter's proud owner, says, "Dexter is a Shoodle (Shih Tzu x Poodle) and I purposely chose a poodle mix when deciding to bring a puppy into the family as my son suffers from asthma and Dexter's non shedding coat is a huge advantage with my son and indeed around the home in general! As Dexter has been brought up in a family home, he adores children, people and other dogs. His tail is continuously wagging and he is always eager to please and to learn new tricks.

Brady - Whippet - North Devon

Meg, Brady's owner, talks fondly about her boy. "Brady, a handsome fawn whippet, who is designed for speed, is also cool, calm and collected at home. He likes nothing better than lying down on his fleecy blanket or a mat, or preferably the sofa, with his front paws crossed, eyes half closed, watching everyone else doing things; a real 'couch potato'!
BUT, take him out to a wide open space and watch with awe as he runs with such grace and agility".
