Golden Retriever

One of the most popular breeds in the U.S., the Golden Retriever is a sturdy, athletic dog known for his intelligence and eager-to-please attitude. The Golden Retriever is patient, kind and loves everyone. His keen nose makes him an excellent hunting companion, and his gentle nature suits him well for therapy work or being a service dog for the disabled. The Golden needs daily exercise and regular grooming.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
Did you know?
The Golden Retriever was developed in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1800s by Lord Tweedmouth, who crossed a “Yellow Retriever” with a now-extinct Tweed Water Spaniel found on his estate. Later, the Irish Setter and Bloodhound were integrated into the breed. Three Golden Retrievers were the first dogs to achieve an AKC Obedience Champion title.
