Vice President of Toy Testing
As a two-year-old German Shepherd mix, you might think Lupin has tons and tons of energy. In fact, he’s the model pandemic-era work-from-home dog. As is typical of his breed, he just wants to be wherever Adam is—so Adam never has to wonder where on earth he’s gotten to. If Adam has the laptop screen open, Lupin’s laying down quietly until it’s time to go out and play. But like all German Shepherds, Lupin does like having a job, one at which he excels when called upon: ensuring all his toys are thoroughly dismembered. Equipped with powerful jaws, a potent sniffer, and relentless determination, he’ll quickly find whatever makes the toy go “squeak” and remove it. Stuff a treat where it used to be, and out comes the stuffing in order to find that tasty morsel. As a result, the “Space Jam: A New Legacy”-themed BarkBox Adam’s colleagues thoughtfully gave Lupin now has Bugs missing an ear and Porky missing his small intestines. It’s all part of punching the clock at Spitfire—after a nap, of course.
