Hello from New Orleans

Hello all, my name is Shawn. New to the forum, haven't even had a chance to do any lurking yet. Lol. My wife and I got a beautiful chocolate lab and either rottie or doberman mix from a rescue about four months ago, and our lives have been forever changed. His name is Riker and he quickly became part of the family. He's loyal, was extremely obedient from the start, easy to train, and has just made the smallest things about everyday life seem more important and enjoyable. I hope to learn as much as possible from the forum to make life for him as great as it can be!

My friend called me at 7 am to tell me she found the dog for me, and to check him out on the rescue's Facebook page. This was Riker the first time I saw him, which is when I knew he was the right dog for me:



A few weeks later, we met him at a meet and greet an hour and a half away, and fell in love with him immediately. He was so sleepy because of the sun, so he kept hiding in our shadows whenever possible. He was only 6 weeks old at the time, so he wasn't ready to come home, but it was HARD leaving him there.



Finally, the day was upon us, and after puppy proofing and reading many books, he came home!





Now, we can't imagine life without him and I spend every moment I can with him.

Thanks! We are so glad we were able to get him. He had a long list of interested people, we just managed to fit what the rescue was looking for.
