Building a Family of Strangers
Sweet faced Eliza looks about 60% Flat Coated Retriever to me (the other 40% is black lab), update: ADOPTED!
Character is a primary and outstanding asset of the Flat-Coat. He is a responsive, loving member of the family, a versatile working dog, multi-talented, sensible, bright and tractable. In competition the Flat-Coat demonstrates stability- and a desire to please with a confident, happy and outgoing attitude characterized by a wagging tail.
