Harley came to us in May, MOST unexpectedly.  Gracy’s breeder, Dale, came to us with this boy puppy.  “A boy?  We’d REALLY have to give that some thought!”  In a short few days, we were ready to “take the leap”, and are we GLAD that we did.  Harley is THE sweetest, extremely affectionate, willing to take risks/chances, and very athletic.  We’re already training for hunt tests and obedience, and can’t wait to compete!  When he matures, we’ll be seeing everyone in the conformation ring.

From the AKC Breed Standard:

The Flat-Coated Retriever is a versatile family companion hunting retriever with a happy and active demeanor, intelligent expression, and clean lines. The Flat-Coat has been traditionally described as showing “power without lumber and raciness without weediness.” The distinctive and most important features of the Flat-Coat are the silhouette (both moving and standing), smooth effortless movement, head type, coat and character.
