Dieter (pronounced dee-ter) is a male, black Lab. He’s 1 year and 9 months old. He’s big and long legged; classic American style Lab. He is a rescue that took me a long time to find, but was the perfect match to our extended pack (2 humans and 4 dogs total). Goofy, leggy, love at first sight for everyone involved. He came to the rescue from a backyard breeder, under circumstances that were not clear to us, however I can say with certainty that he has a better life now than he did before. He is probably the best-behaved Lab puppy you will ever meet. Naturally mellow, although he did have counter-surfing tendencies when he first came home. What Lab doesn’t like a little nibble?! He also has his crazy-puppy moments of racing around the house, but not often. It is at these times when he is referred to as “Die-tard”. He has a big brother, Otto, who is 4 years older, and who has a significantly larger repertoire of nicknames (give me time). They are great buddies and the best companions anyone could ask for.
