Wesley Williams, Creator & CEO
Puppy Pals originator Wesley Williams started it all based on his love for any and all animals! His passion dates back to his childhood days where his mom even said he wanted to purchase a full-on petting zoo at just five years old. It was always something new she proclaimed. One month all he wanted was a potbelly pig, the next month a miniature pony, the next month a flock of chickens, you name the animal, and Wesley wanted it. Although he has always had a genuine joy for working with animals, Wesley pursued his unique unicycle skills at an early age, but always kept that dream of working with furry friends in the back of his mind. Just a few years into forming his livelong goal of an animal act Wesley has burst onto the scene with his "Puppy Pals," a hit comedic stunt dog show!

Kenny put his background in teaching and comedy to work producing educational television programs that have been used in schools and ITV stations around the country. He’s also produced content for The Travel Channel, PBS, and The International Reading Association.

4 Year Old Standard Poodle
Rudy is an absolute crazy man! He is always on the go finding where the next treat is! When Rudy was just 3 weeks he was purchased as the "Pick of the Litter" by a breeding program. Unfortunately, a few weeks later Rudy was diagnosed with some serious medical issues and left with no home or family to care for him. When we got the call about him we couldn't pass up his sweet face and personality. Now some might even say he is the STAR of the show!
2 Year Old Standard Poodle
Spark! While he is biggest pup with The Puppy Pals he is also most certainly the biggest goofball of the pack!
Spark hails from Missouri and he came to us at a time where he was light amidst all that was going on. Hence the name Spark, as he was and still is a SPARK of life. In Spark's down time, he enjoys long walks, traveling, performing stand up comedy, and looking into the mirror and wondering who that handsome dog reflecting back at him is!
5 Year Old Toy Poodle
Cash was our first puppy so he always has a special place in our heart...and the bed too! He is all business which is where he gets his cool name from. Cash came from a beautiful litter in Denver, Colorado. Originally he was destined for another home but they brought him back because they didn't like his spots. Lucky for him we DID! Cash is super duper intelligent and loves nothing more than performing his tricks....but belly rubs are never discouraged by any means.
2 Year Old Rat Terrier
Joey is definitely our mischievous mutt.! A true energizer bunny! Always up to no good and would play with his friends all twenty-four hours of the day if he could! Joey came to us after his previous owners decided that he was not cuddly enough! Although, we think had something to do with his ability to rip any toy apart in record time! We recognized his raw talent and it is abundantly apparent in every show he performs in. There is nothing "Jumpin' Joey" can't do!
3 Year Old Poodle Mix
Gizmo is the mad man of man men! Don't be fooled by those innocent eyes because he is on a mission to wreak havoc. Gizmo came to us after his third home. No one knew how to handle his boundless energy. However, once he was in our hands we quickly realized his love for FOOD and desire to do every trick in the book. He even does a BACKFLIP! Yeah, you heard that right! Gizmo is the ultimate showman and you can't keep him off stage when the lights are on!
2 Year Old Toy Poodle
Well, well, well, here comes the most spoiled dog in the history of dog-kind! Wilson is related to Cash the original Puppy Pal and also came to us from Denver, Colorado! Wilson is mister reliable when it comes to performing on stage. You can always count on him to do his part the same exact way every time! Aside from that, he absolutely loves cuddles, watching movies, sleeping in, swimming, and following his "houmans" everywhere!
3 Year Old Blue Heeler Mix
Bindi the Beautiful! She is small but boy is she a fireball! Bindi was rescued from Central Florida when an elderly couple left her without a home due to her high energy. We heard about her online and decided to make the trip to see her in person. At first sight we knew her drive to please would soar to great heights in the ring. We gladly welcome her "on the ball" personality here at Puppy Pals as she continues to thrive under the big lights.
4 Year Old Bassethound
Louie is our newest Puppy Pal weighing in at a whopping seventy-five pounds! Comedy is Louie's forte. He is just FUNNY! And after all who doesn't love dogs and genuine belly laughs?! Louie is not seen anywhere without his beautiful basset-hound buddy, Lila. Louie's human, Wally, has been kind enough to share their canine antics with us and audiences all over the country!
