Maddie is our chocolate female and is very dark in color after her shed. She is a very friendly towards everyone including other dogs. She loves to retrieve and is a very good with children and play time. For those that want a dog for sports like hunting or frisbee or water sports or hiking she is ideal. She has been a great addition to our family and her training has been very good.  Her first litter of pups has been what we would expect of them and now her second is here to hopfully follow the same path.
