Are you tired of watching your kids' shows but not having any background on the characters? Sure your kids love them, but sometimes it would help to get a little bit more information so you can be more involved. That is the reason we created our own Paw Patrol Wiki page We're here to help! (The pups use this phrase often, remember it, there may be a test at the end of this post). In this series we will dissect your children's favorite programs and give you the important details you need to know.
Paw Patrol, a Canadian TV series created by Keith Chapman, quickly became an extremely popular show for kids as it follows rescue dogs based on real life professional careers. The TV series can be found on Nickelodeon (in the US) and also has live events in select major cities around the globe. There's also a few movies available on DVD so you can watch them with your little ones whenever!
Now let’s get to know the pups from the shore side community of Adventure Bay so you can impress your kids. We have included pictures and gifs to assist.
Ryder is ten year old boy who is the leader of the PAW Patrol. He gives the pups their missions and builds all of the equipment they use, including each unique vehicle! He's creative and extremely intelligent.
Chase is a serious German shepherd whose role serves as the cop/spy dog. A natural born leader, he’s the second hand man, err.. dog in charge of the team. He’s a faithful pup as he wants to keep his friends and community safe. He’s unfortunately extremely allergic to cats!
Marshall, a Dalmatian, is the trustworthy firefighter and medic for the group. He's the joker of the pack. He gets easily excited which causes him to be extremely clumsy as he collides into his friends often.
Skye is an adorable Cockapoo (a cocker spaniel and poodle mix for those aren’t too savvy with dog breeds - I had to google it, too) She loves to fly in her helicopter or with the wings in her pup pack. Ironically, she has a fear of eagles, but is very brave, nonetheless, in all of her missions. She is also very competitive in nature.
Everest, an intelligent Siberian husky snow rescue pup enjoys the finer things in life - digging holes and eating anything liver flavored (Yum!!!). She lives at Adventure Bay’s ski resort and is just a short call away when needed. She's definitely a reliable one!
Rubble is a small but strong English bulldog that takes care of construction. He likes to get down and dirty making him a very hard worker. Rubble was a stray but was then adopted by the Patrol after accompanying Chase on a mission.
Zuma is an adorable chocolate Labrador pup whose main job is to work in water rescue. It only makes sense that he also loves to surf. Zuma has the odd but acceptable phobia of ghosts (but who doesn't). His vehicle is a cool hovercraft than can convert into a submarine.
Tracker is a bilingual white and brown Chihuahua who works in jungle rescue. He’s not a fan of being left alone in the dark and lives with his human caretaker.
Rocky, unlike the rest of the pups, is an unknown mixed breed. He lives and breaths being eco-friendly and recycling. He enjoys to re-purpose items while proclaiming “why trash it when you can stash it”. He has a phobia of water, as he prefers to be on land as much as possible.
