This duck hunting retriever is obsessed with water, sweet treats and his family.

Riot is a 2 1/2-year-old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He was born in Sonoma,CA and we got him at 11 weeks old on July 4th, 2015. His favorite thing to do is duck hunt with his dad. He is a retrieving fool. He is obsessed with the water and would swim until he drowned if we let him. He has his junior hunt title and is currently working on his senior title. He recently became a big brother to our little 5-month-old baby boy and he loves to give him kisses. Riot is extremely playful and takes after his name because he is a Riot! He has the scariest bark but is 100% harmless he just likes to make sure he is heard. We are grateful for his scary bark so if (heaven forbid) someone tried to break into our home he would for sure scare them away with his terrifying (but harmless) bark. Riot’s favorite treats are carrots and celery but don’t let him fool you; he also has a horrible sweet tooth! If you leave any sort of treat on the counter he will snatch it and swallow it in one bite. The funny thing is that he knows better but thinks the punishment is worth the treat. He goes straight into his kennel after snatching treats because he knows that’s where he goes when he’s in trouble. He is attached to his family and rarely leaves our side. We never had to worry about him running away because if he can’t see us, he panics and frantically tries to find us. He is our best bud and makes our lives so much fun! He is our first baby and we are so lucky to have him as part of our family.
