Default Hi All! New to mixed-breeds!

Hi everyone.
My name is Cheri. I just got my first mixed-breed puppy! I have a lot of experience with dogs though. I started in Junior Showmanship at 14 with my boxer, Buffy. My first job was as a vet tech. As an adult I realized my passion was competitive obedience. I was always heavily involved in AKC events. Professionally I've worked as a vet tech, trainer, doggie daycare manager and groomer. I am now in the process of opening my own boarding/ daycare facility.
Anyway. I just adopted "Riley", a boxer/chow/golden/? mix. I did a lot of research beforehand to make sure our options weren't limited. We are going to register in AKC Partners and compete as much as possible! After taking little Riley home I was surprised by how naturally calm/submissive she is. I got to thinking how great therapy work would be...I have zero experience in this and to be honest I don't think either of my boxers would have been well-suited. I'm hoping some of you guys can help advise me!

One picture is Riley...the other is the last picture I took of Cheri's Scarlett Faith "Buffy" - R.I.P.

Sorry no experience with therapy work, but just wanted to say your puppy is adorable! Think we are going to need more photos....
