How can you resist these cute Sherwood pups!?!
This litter of nine pups is five males (Little John, Toby, Robin, Tuck, Richard) and four females (Marion, Sis, Bunny, Skippy). These pups are from an unplanned litter between neighboring dogs in Arkansas and are ready to find their own forever families!
These pups love to play; whether it be with a squeaky or chew toy, but they are also happy to be a lap dog and snuggle up on the couch as they appear to be pretty affectionate. Their preferred play styles are chase, bitey-mouth, and wrestling; although they are mostly quiet you may hear them bark while playing. Given their eagerness to please and intelligence, they have a great foundation to be a blast for training and develop into great family dogs! They've also got a great foundation to be awesome adventure buddies - they are interested and calm when going new places and in the car!
Skippy is a smart girl and is learning 'big dog' skills quickly. She is doing great with house training, but still needs a little more practice. She recently completed crate trained where she sleeps quietly all night. She also needs some work on her leash skills but so far, so good!
Skippy loves other dogs and is best friends with her foster's family dog.
We strongly recommend that all our dogs - and especially puppies - attend obedience classes because you get to learn commands together, and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, and it also helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and his/her human family. It’s lots of fun, too! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him/her.
