Smile Hello from Tennessee

Hello. I have joined this forum to learn more about Retrievers. My husband and I are pretty well versed with Dalmatians and Dobermans, but GR's are new to us. We "rescued" a purebred GR papered pup recently from a desperate pregnant woman who was about to be evicted for having a pet at her apartment. She went and bought him from a breeder on a whim knowing that her apartment complex forbid pets. She was selling him and had some offers from other people that I didn't feel were qualified or stable people to own a pup. We paid her for the dog and will be taking our time to find him a loving home. I have had Dalmatians for many years and knew what happens when people buy dogs on whims. We decided to prevent this with this pup. He is a delight and if we didn't have a Dobie pup on the way next month, we would keep him.

Anyway, nice to be here and I will be reading up on the breed thanks to this forum.
