Me and my boyfriend have a dog named Beau. His is part Labrador/part Newfoundland mix. He is 68 pounds of love. Mostly black with 2 little patches of white fur on his chest. He was a rescue dog and we got him when he was one. He never had any prior training before we got him and he is such a good dog. Such a cutie! He just turned 2 in April. And we had him for a year on April 30th. Beau just got diagnosed with a genetic disorder called Follicular Dysplasia. It's not contagious or life threatening. It's just that when he loses his fur, it won't be able to grow back. The disease blocks the hair from growing back. He is such a darling and an absolute lap dog.
