Leroy is part Coyote and part Labrador. Most people just think he is a "chocolate lab" until they see his eyes! Leroy has those yellowish golden eyes just like a coyote. Most people would think that he is wild and mean, but he is the most gentle creature you will ever meet. I bought Leroy when he was a few months old. He was mainly meant for my 5 year old daughter (who is now eight!) who was much in need of a friend. He turned out to be a smart dog who is just like a son to me. I have always talked to him as if he is a person and he always looked at me as if he understood. As far as potty training there was not much to it. I live on 2 acres of land and to this day Leroy has never used the bathroom in the yard....he always goes to the woods. He has never tried to bite or growl at either of my children. We taught him to sit by holding a treat and touching it to his nose. As soon as the treat would touch his nose we would say "sit" and he started sitting! Labs are great dogs to own, they are loving and fun but just remember when they are puppies everything is going to get chewed up!
