    Labrador Retriever

    Say hello to America's most popular dog for the 25th year in a row. Labs are known for their loving personalities, easy-to-care-for, and fun for the whole family. My Josie is our second lab rescue.

    Golden Retriever

    The Golden Retriever is also a very smart, friendly, and devoted dog who is also known as a excellent hunter. This is my second favorite breed behind a lab. Retrievers will shed profusely though, so keep that in mind.
