I have two dogs.

Dot is a 6 year old Brittany who LOVES agility and chasing birds. She cannot have any treats with fish ingredients or grains in them. Her favorite foods are string cheese, apples and cooked chicken breast. Dot also competes in rally and obedience, but her true love is running over the A-frame at full speed! Dot likes to dress up in scarves, bandanas and such, she is quite fashionable. She loves to be outside and is almost always muddy or has leaves in her hair.

Taco is a 2 year old Pit mix who is just starting his obedience career. He loves kongs and tough tug toys because he is a chewer and can't have nice things! He has no dietary restrictions at all, his favorite foods are bananas, peanut butter and roast beef. Taco does not like wearing hats but gets super cold so he wears coats, scarves and snoods in the wintertime. He is a snugglebug and likes to burrow under blankets.

I have a two year old Dachshund/Cocker Spaniel mix named Freddy (Full name is Freddy Pickles). We adopted him last December through a rescue organization here in Austin, TX. He is the sweetest, happiest little guy ever! He loves everyone and every dog he meets. He enjoys treat of ALL kinds (seriously, this dog loves to eat). He loves most all toys, but especially love ones that resemble small prey creatures (fox, badger, etc. Anything with a bushy tail!). He usually wears a size small collar and a medium shirt because he's so long.

I have a pit/lab mix named Chase. He is 6 years old. He loves all kinds of treats and bones, and likes all kinds of toys. He seems to chew any type of toy I get him , weather its a stuffed animal or rubber ball. He is a medium size dog, but we haven't tried any sweaters or things like that. He is a Steelers fan, just like his mama! :)

Hi! I am a happy dog mom with six fur babies! Three cocker spaniels and three shih tzus. For this swap, you can send stuff for all, or for Sophia ( her first Christmas, a shih tzu) or Samy ( my therapy dog, also a shih tzu) they love it all! Clothes in small or medium, rawhide bones, biscuits soft treat. But we do try to avoid pork products. At the swap host thank you! I was waiting for a swap like this!

My dog is Toby, an eight year old 3-legged rescue dog (Min Pin/Rat Terrier mix). He likes soft treats (Pupperoni, Beggin' Strips, etc.), wet food as a treat once a week (he loves those Beneful little cans or plastic containers), and stuffed toys he can destruct. He also enjoys playing with tennis balls at times. He refuses to wear clothes. The only thing I try to avoid are treats made in China (due to the recent scare).

I have 2 shih tzu boys - Addison and Buddie. Both think they run the house and probably do. They love small/mini milkbones, dentastix (large), busy bone was and flat furry toys for tug of war.
No clothes for the boys, as they cant stand anything on them, lol

Hello! I have one Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Poppy who is 1 1/2 years old. She is a riot with so much energy and personality. She is very petite for her breed and more the size of a mini dauchshound (about 16 pounds.) That means she generally wears a size small in clothing unless it's more a chihuahua small and then she's a medium..but most mediums are too big, just think dauchshound size and you're on the right track :) she can have any sort of treat as long as it isn't rawhide. Please no rawhide for any dogs as it can make them very ill and give them bloat. Bully sticks, jerky treats, and that sort of thing are fine. Also, please no toys with fluff...poppy has the jaws of a pit bull and destroys anything with fluff in under 2 minutes. A good list of things to get her are: -bully sticks -Nyla bones -anything by kong -durable toys, petsmart has a line called "indestructible" which is a great one -sHe loves things with squeakers -cute girly "sophisticated" clothes...she's a mix of tomboy and British princess hahaha -yummy snacks She eats all organic natural food, so I don't need anything of that sort unless it's a natural brand. We also LOVE halloween in this family and didn't make it to petsmart before halloween was over. They tend to stock nightmare before Christmas clothes on clearance this time of year and last year we got a hoodie and a tshirt for 3$ each after halloween. If you comes cross any macabre toys, or nightmare before Christmas stuff on clearance poppy is a huge fan :) oh, and fox toys...

I have 2 dogs that will be spending their first Christmas with our family because we rescued them just after Christmas last year. They are a black schnauzer and a white terrier, Benny & Maggie, both between 22 - 25 lbs. What I would love for them is a cute thing for them to wear for the holiday -- think santa hat(s) or collar embellishment, or some such Christmas cuteness. They eat grain-free food, but eat all sorts of treats (kinda negates the grain-free, but whatevs!)

I have a toy Yorkie named "Lilgirl" this will be our first Christmas. she loves milk bones mini any flover, beggin strips any flavor, denta stix, soft toys and squeaky toys. because she is so tiny I have to keep a small bell on her so that i can know where she is. she also likes to snuggle. I would like for her to have a sweater of some sort if possible, she likes to go for walks and it starting to get cold outside.

I talk a lot about my great dane, penelope, a lot on my profile, but I love the list of doggie details, so I thought we'd include ours. She's 7 yrs. old, senior, great dane. She can't stand grains and we keep her on a raw food/grain free diet. She loves toys and treats and notes especially for her. She likes presents and always sees her presence as my everyday present : D Anyway, She's a large breed, so small toys are a choking hazard- that's the only thing I can think of?

I have 4 Papillons. Jessie is 4 and 11 lbs., Vern is 8 or 9 and weighs about 9 lbs., Penny is 8 and weighs 12 lbs., and Miss Juicy is 8 and weighs 12 lbs. All of the dogs are rescues from various states as I work for rescue groups as well as transport and with a spay/neuter group. Miss Juicy is blind and I literally pulled her within an hour of being put down. They like Greenies tooth brushes, denta sticks, Puperoni and Cainine Carryout. They also like Texas Toothpicks by Merrick and enzyme chews by Virbac or Butler Schein. No other rawhide though. They also LOVE squeeky toys! (plush ones, not the rubber ones) NO food or chews from China please! They like the wet Cesar dog food or I also buy dry Royal Cannin or Eukanuba or Science Diet. Also small bites please. and training treats. If harnesses or clothing, a small/medium size. I know $10. doesn't go far, so if you want it to buy for one dog, that is fine too.

I have 4 dogs 3 females shih thus and one chipoo male 2 i also right now have 4 - 3 in half week old pups that my dogs had , my dogs love treats but only soft treats no hard and no rawhide, pig ears etc as they fight over them and I have a fear they will choke on them as well.They love soft toys that squeak but treats are there favorite any flavor so long as they are soft/most but there favorites are pup a Ron I sticks , begging strip minis or regular, meatball treats and the canine carryout line of snacks but any type is fine or puppy treats that are small in size would be great for the little ones as they will be here to at least 10 to 12 weeks old or longer if needed to find the perfect forever home if I must I will keep them so anything for that older ones or the puppies are great.No I didn't plan on breeding I got the chipoo as a rescue and was told he was younger then he was and before I could get him fixed boom so yes it was very immature as a animal lover to bring more dogs in the world with so many already getting put down but I will do everything in my power to insure these Lil guys get the very best home, vet care etc in their life as I do with my furbabies I have now we also have a cat ,3 bunnies,1 ferret and a chinchilla if u find it better to send a mixed pet package I'd be grateful for anything for my furry family members holiday stockings(yes they have stocking lol) happy holidays to every animal lover out there and hope santa paws treats them good this year

Just for your information. If you shop at Baxter Boo online, they have promotions everyday for the next few days. They have specials that they feature at a discount, plus FREE shipping with a code you enter in. You may have to sign up for their newsletter. They put out some good specials during the year. I know some of their items are expensive, but they often give $'s off. I have also entered in their photo contests 3 times with them wearing or displaying their product and have won 3 times! The kick back is a $25.00 gift certificate, so worth checking out. I am not affiliated, just happy when I get a bargain and things ship quickly! They are quick to refund too if it doesn't fit, etc.

My baby is a four year old American Bulldog mix named Buddy Holly. He's right at 90 pounds and LOVES to chew, so durable toys are his friend. Haha He's a big boy, so please no clothing or small toys. He has no allergies, but I ask that you please don't send anything rawhide. Other than that, we'll appreciate anything! (:
