This is my new rescue dog, Zelly. He is a Flat-coated Retriever commonly called a "Flattie". He is the most laid back dog I've ever seen (which I understand is typical of this breed). He never gets excited and easily obeys all commands. He is WONDERFUL!!! Of course I'm not prejudiced. I am showing a very quick watercolor of him at rest. It is also a trait of this breed that they sleep on their backs with their legs in the air (not very modest but cute). He does this quite often.
