I almost lost my puppy to parvo when he was 3 months old. Now he's 7 months and doing great! Here are some pics of him growing up. He's a lab/pit/chow mix who my husband picked up at a truck stop. So far he's the best pup ever.


8 weeks old


about 10 weeks.


On the trail at 5 months. I just adore his fancy tongue.


6.5 months with his new "man" collar (don't worry, it's pleather)

He's such a good dog. He's never torn anything up, is very obedient, and is protective of me and my daughter. I am so glad my husband brought him home, instead of buying a purebred from a breeder. Rescuing a dog is certainly the best!

Riley, you are such a beautiful boy. We are so glad you were sent to this wonderful family who helped you beat the odds so that we all can celebrate how precious you are!

His fur is so shiny, and he doesn't even look like a mix, I would've mistaken him for a pure Labrador!
That's amazing that he survived parvo, he looks like such an adorable and tough little guy.

I'm no expert on dog breeds, but he definitely favors the lab part of his heritage. Here's to a long happy life for him with you!

I just thought I'd post a few more pictures. I hope no one minds



The day we got him. I took the collar off my cat and gave it to him until we could get his own.


Here's a good indication of how small he was.


His collar says he hunts zombies. So cute!


This was taken 2 weeks ago when he was 50lbs. I think he's gained a little more since then.

Half the reason I say he has pit in him is because they're my dream breed. I just can't have a full one because we rent.
