I think there are a couple of people on here with this breed. They are beautiful dogs
They look quite similar to labs? Are they similar?
they are fabulous swimmers mainly used in the wildfowling areas as they are a big strong dog with webbed feet and can withstand cold tempretures
This is my Chessie, Indy, at around 13 weeks old.
Don't let the cuteness fool you, this breed is definitely not one for the new handler. They are dominant and can be a handful if you aren't the pack leader. Great dogs though, something special if you like real challenges.
This was Indy's first birthday. Sure goes fast.
Indy was a stunning pup and I am sure just as stunning at one-year-old - do all CBRs have light eyes like Indy's?
Thank you for the lovely pictures.
Yes, when Chesapeake's are born their eyes are blue, then turn green and finally amber. It's a lovely transformation to watch. It's really interesting to see the changes. They're bluw for about 6 weeks and then turn green like what you see in the pic.
