Hi, I'm Adam and I just adopted a "Lab Mix" puppy. I don't know what the "mix" part is. The Lab part is obvious. A friend told me he looks like he's part "Pointer." Another friend suggested that he's part Siamese cat - but I have my doubts about that. Any way, Romeo (the name of my puppy) is a wonderful, playful, beautiful puppy and I want to do right by him. I have never actually raised a puppy myself, but I've lived in a house where others have raised and trained dogs so I'm not completely unfamiliar with the process. Still, I have some gaps in my knowledge. I joined this forum to help me fill in those gaps. To that end, right now, I have two questions... 1)Is it important to find out what the "mix" portion of the puppy is? 2)I've adopted him from a shelter. He comes from a "motherless" litter. I can't get more information from the original owners (if he ever even had an original owner.) How does one go about finding what the "mix" portion might be?
