Alpine is the newest girl at our shelter. She is one year old girl with a lot of energy. This breed often competes in obedience, rally and agility contests, and often serves as a therapy dog. They are often mistaken for Labrador Retrievers, but they are a totally separate breed. They are eager to please and have entertaining personalities. Flat-Coated Retrievers are sometimes called the “Peter Pan” of dog breeds because they maintain their puppy-like exuberance for more years than other dogs.
