Bogey's best friend Tessa is a golden/lab mix and we LOVE her. They get together every weekend and get along great. She was a 2-year old rescue, and her family just had a baby 5 weeks ago. She is an angel with the baby, and she did NOT come from good beginnings. Here are a few pictures of the two of them playing. The fourth one is just her - I love the white patch on her chest.
Of course every dog has their own personality, but I have been so impressed with Tessa. She reformed nicely and is the most loyal dog I know.
Tessa was brought into their home when they already had an 18-month old lab. She fit in just fit - the first few weeks were tough to teach her the rules, but now they can't imagine life without her.
Actually, many service orgs prefer these mixes to purebreds. I don't know why, but I have heard that in some of the research I did to help a friend find an assistance dog.
I say GO GET ONE!
