I know. Dogs and birds are a terrible idea. But we fell in love with this guy at the shelter yesterday and little boys and dogs go together like peanut butter and jelly.

He was at one shelter for a couple months before being transferred to the one we adopted him at. He is about 2 years old and so freaking sweet. So far great with the kids, ignores Ripley (he's on a leash so even if he wanted to go after him, he can't) and isn't even giving my cat the time of day. When I met him he was one of three dogs that were calm and quiet while the other dogs at the shelter were barking and jumping.

He's about 70 lbs so a bigger boy! But so far we love him :)

His original name was Duke which we liked, but Nikolai wanted to name him Lucky, so we compromised on Luke :)

He is :) Mathias keeps giving him kisses and he just isn't phased lol. We keep making the kids give him a break though to make sure they don't push him too far. Every dog has a limit and I prefer to not find out that limit!

That's exactly how I selected my girl Pepper.

He is absolutely beautiful, can see the love appreciation of being taken home already. Can’t believe he was still in a shelter..
I'm guessing because he is big and not flashy :( They passed over a real gem because there were so many "cuter" or "cool coat colors" instead.

He's a good looking boy! I'm sure he'll adore the abundance of love from your boys. I just love, love, love those photos of the nose close-ups! Congratulations to all of you and Luke!
