"Soft and cuddly as ever, these adorable Pound Puppies have realistic sounds and movement that seem to make them come alive! Pet these pups and they raise and move their heads and whimper, yelp and bark to encourage you! These pups are packed out in a motion sensitive try-me mode, so when you approach them on shelf, they automatically start to bark and move their heads as if to say, Pick Me! You wont be able to resist taking one home! There are five different pups to choose from, each wearing its own collar with a tag for personalization. Each puppy comes packed in a reusable doghouse package."

Go Puppy, Go

"You'll have hours of fun with the remote controlled Go Puppy Go! Pups. These are the feistiest, most energetic Pound Puppy pups yet! Using the adorable, paw shaped remote controller, you control this pup's movements as you walk him, race him or make him spin as if doing tricks! Grab a friend with another Go Puppy Go! pup in a different frequency and you and your friend can have hours of fun controlling these pups as they play together and romp around like all young puppies do! There are three puppies in the assortment, each one comes in a different colour variation. Every puppy comes in two frequencies so you can always play with a friend's pup who runs on a different frequency. All puppies come with a name tag and name collar and an Official Pound Puppies Adoption Certificate."
