I am avid lab lover just acquired my second lab puppy. He is a rescue and 5 months old now. I have been feeding him three times a day Purina puppy chow the shelter think he is black/chocolate lab with beagle in him and he has some white on his chest. His rips are slightly visible but he has an excellent appetite. I have tried twice to get him to play fetch in a big open field but all he does is lie down or sit in the field and watch the toy go by and not fetch it. He will play inside though. His name is Radar O Riley.
