To me, natural consequences of throwing things at me definitely includes NOT reading to you. That isn't using your emotion to punish, it is truly natural consequence.
Calling the shelter, while you would think that it should be a good thing to do, seldom gets an animal back. You really need to visit the shelter every. single. day and look carefully for your lost pet. When I lost a dog several years ago in San Diego County, I had to make the rounds of five different shelters every day. With a young infant. I know it's a pain and can be difficult logistically, but it's the only way to ensure that your pet isn't there.

I know with larger breed dogs they can grow too fast on the puppy food so at 6mos or so you're suppose to start mixing the puppy with the adult food. No, with larger breed dogs you're not ever supposed to feed them any puppy food at all.
Don't feed him extra. Adult food is more than fine for puppies. He'd be perfectly fine if you never fed him puppy food at all. In fact, if he weren't a small dog, I'd recommend that you should absolutely not feed puppy food.
I'm sticking with pointer. Also, a dog that doesn't like treats could not possibly be half lab
I didn't before, at ALL, but now I see pointer. I don't see lab. Do you have any pics from the side to show his body style and his tail? Also, intelligence does not equal trainability. Not saying that he is or isn't smart though.
