DHK Library Dogs


Dexter - Shoodle - North Devon
Certified School Dog - May 2012

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. Dexter is an intelligent and very friendly bundle of fluff. He loves his walks as well as his snuggles and cuddles and he puts a smile on the face of whoever meets him."

Brady - Whippet - North Devon
Certified School Dog - March 2014

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".
