"I can’t believe that Effie (Denise) is now 1 year! And what a year :) She is absolutely the MOST AMAZING dog and companion :) Right around 7 months, she really mellowed out, became incredibly loving and cuddly and really just a dream dog! She is so happy, silly, responsive, playful, intelligent, cuddly, athletic, social and just really such a great addition to our family! She is great with our daughter and friends, has become my walking and hiking companion and goes to puppy school everyday where she has an entourage of dog besties to play with for hours. She’s graduated 3 levels of training and passed her Good Citizen test and at some point we intend to do therapy dog training - when she is older. We are so grateful! So, on this very special, week long birthday celebration for Effie Trinket, I just wanted to personally reach out and thank you for such a great pup! We love her so much. For the record - at 1 year she is weighing in at 72lbs, she is still growing in spurts and eats like a tank. Thank you from the bottom of our Bailey hearts! And of course…pictures :)))"

"Hi, We had Effie spayed on Monday (June 4). All is well :) Currently she is just under 50lbs and has slowed down a little in her rate of growth. Out of curiosity - what were the general sizes of her parents? (Manny and Brillo) She is just the sweetest puppy and equally sassy :) It was a challenge to find her training motivators, she’s a finicky eater and a bit head strong, but with some patience we discovered her greatest weakness is Cheese Whiz LOL! We can literally get her to do anything with that stuff, which has really helped with training! She has so much personality and spunk, she is a total riot :) She’s graduated puppy and intermediate school. We have a positive reinforcement private trainer coming to help with some overexcitement behaviors on leash, she is responding well to that. She is so smart, incredibly social and a total lover of life. We plan to continue through advanced training and then have her certified as a therapy dog once she matures a little bit. We are truly enjoying her, she is an absolutely awesome addition to the family. Thank you so much for our sweet Effie Trinket She is brilliant and so loved."

"We had a great first night with Effie (Denise). She was a little shy at first, but quickly learned where to potty and that anyone will cuddle her anytime she wants. Well, except the cat :) She loves to play outside and with her toys, and she really loves praise and food! She whimpered for a few moments in the crate, but went right to sleep and stayed there quietly until I got up at 5am. She is so sweet and silly and we are all so in love with her! She is an absolutely perfect puppy! Thank you so much! We couldn't be happier!"
