September 01 2018: Pup of the Month!

This is tiny girl is Raine. Her owner had these words to share with us: “Raine is a miniature pinscher who is hopefully an agility star of the future! She is full of beans and is keeping me on my toes as well as being very cuddly and loving!”. We are so grateful to Naomi (Raine’s owner) and Raine for their participation in the Generation Pup research project.



August 23 2018: First Irish Puppy!

The Generation Pup team are delighted to introduce this handsome Irish lad! His name is Gus and he was the very first puppy recruited in the Republic of Ireland. Gus was adopted from Dogs Trust and his owner very kindly shared these words with us:

“We collected Gus on Sunday the 12th of August and since then he has brought so much happiness and fun into our home. He is a very happy pup and is full of energy and excitement. He loves his cuddles and his favourite place to sleep is at my feet with his head resting on my foot. He has learned to walk really well on his lead and he is so clever. We are so grateful to The Dogs trust for letting Gus become part of our home. He is a very special puppy in our eyes and Dogs Trust have been so helpful even the adoption talk was fantastic. We are so proud that Gus was the first to sign up for Generation Pup and I hope many more sign up soon.”

Thank you so much to Gus’s owner and to every single one of our other Generation Pup dog owners.
