Purin, whose name means "pudding" in Japanese, was born in 2006 and was raised by her owner, Makoto Kumagai. Kumagai is a software engineer who had a passion for training dogs, and Purin was one of his most gifted pupils. Kumagai trained Purin in various skills, including catching balls and jumping rope, but it was her ability to solve puzzles that caught the attention of the world.
Kumagai began training Purin to solve puzzles when she was just a puppy. He used simple crossword puzzles to introduce her to the concept of puzzle-solving and gradually increased the difficulty level as she got better. Kumagai would use treats as rewards for Purin when she successfully solved a puzzle, which helped motivate her to keep going.
Over time, Purin became an expert in solving crossword puzzles. She would sit down at a table with Kumagai, and he would give her a puzzle to solve. Purin would then use her paws to point to the correct letters on the puzzle grid, and Kumagai would write them down. Purin was able to solve puzzles quickly, and Kumagai would reward her with treats for her efforts.
