Joe is the sweetest teddy bear of a Labrador you would ever hope to meet. He is truly one of the most laid back, happy dogs we have had the pleasure to own, with the perfect Labrador personality - loves all people and lives to retrieve. When it comes to receiving attention, Joe is fully engaged. Around town and at the dog shows, you'll see him on the lookout for new friends. He will stare with those soft brown eyes, until you can't help but come over and give him a hug. Take your picture with him and you'll make his day! He gets along with dogs and people of all ages and sizes. There's no room for gloom when Joe's around. His uplifting personality is guaranteed to make every day shine brighter. Super intelligent, Joe embraces new experiences like a pro, joins in with a big smile. During the first dog show he attended, our hotel room offered Joe his first ride in an elevator and the first time going up flights of stairs. Not a second of hestiation, right up he went! Told he could sleep on the bed, and boom, he was on it and out - slept all night, didn't move. I guess it's safe to say that Joe enjoys dog shows and hotel beds! We are super excited to watch this fine young dog grow, show and produce puppies as bright, loving and beautiful as he is.
Had to get this photo of Joe with me after he qualified for his Championship — So proud of him!
Joe received his AKC championship in 6 months of showing, at 17 months of age... amazing!
