Power Bar

This dog is a Power Bar--the athlete at the dog park. He loves being with an owner who's as active as he is--he'll never say no to a run. In fact, he might meet you at the door with his hands-free leash and your cross-trainers. Agility is a great way to exercise these bundles of energy, as they're intelligent and love to be challenged, but novice dog parents might find they've bitten off more than they can chew with the amount of training, attention and exercise these dogs require.

Trail Mix

Just like the nutty snack, it's great to have a Trail Mix dog by your side wherever you go. These dogs are canine Velcro--they're doing what you're doing, whether it's hiking, skijoring or taking in the view by the nearest lake. Although they're very dedicated to and affectionate toward their owners, they can be aloof and/or somewhat nervous around new people or situations. Trail Mix dogs are smart and learn quickly, which means they need a good balance of mental and physical stimulation to overcome their occasionally nutty nature. But if you're looking for a constant companion to share your life with, this dog will be nuts for you!

Hot Tamale

This dog has a spicy personality; he's pure entertainment and fun! He loves people (though you might have to break out the bacon bits to motivate this strong-willed little spitfire), and he's the ultimate performer. If you're not entertained, he'll find a new audience--even if it means announcing his very big presence vocally. This little clown will keep you laughing with his quirky antics, and cover you with kisses when you most need it.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie dogs are everyone's friend--pleasant, adaptable, and eager to please, these are the social butterflies of the dog world. He might not favor his owner over other people, though, and because of his social nature and need for stimulation, he could get destructive if left alone for a while. But these dogs, sweet and warm, are perfect for families with kids or constantly changing environments.

Baked Potato

This little spud is low-energy; not overly playful or puppyish, but happy to lie on your couch and enjoy some Animal Planet. They like the occasional short walk (but don't be surprised they need a little break in the middle), and are well-suited to calm families or those with a relaxed lifestyle. Baked Potatoes tend to be food-motivated, which will help them learn basic commands, though they might get a little stubborn if the training goes on too long. And don't expect this dog to climb ladders or jump through hoops anytime soon. But if you're looking for a sweet, mellow rug, this dog's for you.
