River is 4 1/2 months old. He was sorta a rescue. We found out abt him and that he was living outside on a chain and they did not want him, and so i offered to help them find him a better home, well ends up we are keeping him. He is a pure lab, from akc parents but he wasnt registered. He just got neutered and microchipped on monday. I am a veterinary technician, and a groomer. We have three other dogs, all small. Farley-yorkie Eddie-jack russell/rat terrier, and Graham- puggle/jack russel. All have been rescues except eddie. He was our first. I have fostered many dogs and other pets and found them great homes, but after one day with river we knew we would keep him. He is the first Labrador I have ever had, and he is the best puppy i have ever had. We love him. He is about 47 lbs right now, so we dont know how big to expect him to be, but he is a very pleasant puppy. He gets along great with our small dogs, and loves loves loves the water and loves to swim. He came with the name river, and we decided to keep it since we couldnt think of a better name that fit him. He loves to fetch. And he loves toys. So thats about all i can think of about us. I have looked around the site a little for the past few days, and i like it so far. I cannot figure out how to post a pic, sorry, i will keep trying
Thanks and i will go look and see if i can figure this out.
That is him in my avatar, i did figure out how to do that atleast, lol
It breaks my heart to hear he was living tied to a chain! I am thankful you stepped up to help and love him! He is a realy pretty pup! He lucked out when you came along!
Thanks, it was horrible that he was living on a chain for the past two months. Made me sick,and we expected him to have no manners, but he has not had even one accident in the house, he caught on to pottying out side really fast. I think it helped having the little dogs to follow outside. He caught on to their routine very fast. We are lucky to have him!!!!
He is very smart also, will do anything for a treat We have only had him for 1 week, so i am still very exited to talk about him, as you can prob tell!
