Meet beautiful ‘Petra’….October Pup of the Month!

A big thank you to Petra and her owner for being part of Generation Pup. By providing data about Petra her owner is contributing to improving the health, behaviour and welfare of generations of dogs to come.  Petra’s owner had these words to share….”Petra is a blue German Shepherd.  One of her favourite pastimes is giving us the slip at the park and heading for the muddiest smelly puddle. Splash!! She’s no longer blue and boy does she smell!”

September’s Generation Pup of the Month award goes to the beautiful ‘Blizzard’!

Blizzard’s owner has kindly shared these words about her gorgeous Labrador X Husky puppy “Sometimes she’s huskadorable and other times she’s a bouncy, bitey, brilliantly handfulador pup. Learning to play with the children, catch and fetch and popping bubbles”.  If you would like your puppy to be the next Pup of the Month, please send your favourite picture of him/her to generationpup@rvc.ac.uk before the end of the month so they may be entered in the draw!  Huge thanks to Blizzard and all our Generation Pup puppies for taking part in this amazing research project!
