Last weekend we got a dog. his name is Cody. He is a 10 week old Black lab/German Shepard mix. He doesn't look much like a german shepard, but he does have a spot of white in his chest. One of his brothers looked like a lab with german shepard coloring. So far he is VERY smart. We got him from an animal rescue organization (I don't remember which one right now), and the lady who took care of him said that he was house trained in 2 days. its only been 4 days since we got him, but I can tell that he is going to be a great dog.
