He loves going for walks with his two little friends.

He hates I repeat HATES getting a bath, he is convinced that it is the devil. Besides he has worked long and hard on that stink and doesn't appreciate me washing it off!

Favorite Toy:
he loves all toys

Favorite Food:
what are you talking about he is a lab, he loves anything edible!

Favorite Walk:
off leash in the woods

Best Tricks:
His watch me is so good he will not move a muscle until I release him. Going back to the food thing he will do anything and I mean anything for a snack.

Arrival Story:
I have been interested in Search and Rescue for several years and had been doing lots of research into how to get started and what are some of the more successful breeds, although I quickly learned that any large breed dog with the right personality could potentially be a great sar dog I decided to go with the lab for its great versatility. I searched for a local breeder and found a lovely lady that just loved her dogs and their pups. The first pup that I saw was a chocolate but she just didn't tickle my fancy and then I spotted him, a beautiful fat "dudley" blonde, who just blew me away with his green eyes and pink skin. He was soooooooooo cute!!!!!!!! And that is how this fellow came home with me.

So far he has been a fabulous dog, he is very smart and learns very quickly, he is doing great so far off leash and catches on quick when on leash. He still sleeps alot but we go on walks everyday sometime twice to help him run off pent up energy. I am sure as the months go by we will start going out twice a day and go running to help ensure he doesn't go crazy with nothing to do. He is very sweet and loves being hugged, we are going to obedience school and will also be training to be a therapy dog. I am trying to not put to much expectation on him so that he can be him self as well as a working dog. Hopefully he will love working and going places, so far he has proven himself and I know that he will continue to be a fabulous dog and friend.
