IROKO is such a handsome Labrador Retriever! He has quickly charmed the Calgary staff and volunteers, but he is not just all good looks! He also has a beautiful disposition to match his appearance. This happy and motivated guy has spent his first couple of weeks settling into the routine of advanced training, making friends with his new training partners and his new house mates at his sitter’s home. His raisers Shawn and Cathy should be very proud of all their hard work in raising this wonderful guy!
