   Wrex the Dawg is a mischievous robotic mutt that performs up to 80 moves. He moves his head, twitches his ears, wags his tail, sits, stands, and scampers freely--infrared sensors help him to react to movements, avoid obstacles, and detect and avoid drop-offs like stairs. The remote control directs movements and commands 18 different tricks like "shake hands" and "play dead".

   Wrex the Dawg's moods (Happy, Angry and Crazy) and desires (Exercise, Call of Nature and Hunger) are expressed by his "jackpot" eyes. His left eye displays his moods and his right eye displays his desires. Change moods via the Mood Dial on the remote control, bump him on his push button nose to reset his "jackpot" eyes, or just let him to change moods all by himself. 
   Wrex performs a number of tricks including shake-a-paw, playing dead, and dancing. Each of his moods features its own unique set of tricks. His remote control matches his junkyard origins and allows you to access all of his features and tricks using dials and picture icons. Wrex zips around rapidly on his two hind wheels and two jointed front legs. 

   This junkyard dog occasionally malfunctions. When he begins his "malfunction animation" it's your cue to reset him using the programming hatch. If you don't enter a code in time, he'll enter his "Breakdown Mode".

  He features swiveling ears, a moving jaw and a squeaky tail. Set him to “Guard Mode” and have him warn you when strangers approach. Select the "Off the Leash" icon from the remote controller’s Mood Dial and he will explore your home all on his own. When in "Sleep Mode" he conserves battery life. Wrex can also avoid edges and obstacles and will know when he has been picked up. Wrex can “see” in front him and will react to movements and obstacles in his field of vision. The remote control (left) is very easy and simple to operate.
