Country of Origin

The Golden Retriever (also known as Yellow Retriever) has one of the most well documented and successful breeding histories among dogs. It was bred in England in the 1800's to push through heavy foliage and swim in cold water for long distances, gently retrieving game. Golden Retrievers were brought to America in 1900 and first recognized as a distinct breed in 1912. They went quickly from being a well-liked hunting dog to a fashionable show and obedience dog, to an extremely popular pet. Famous Golden Retrievers include Gerald Ford's dog Liberty and Dean Koontz's dog Trixie Dean Koontz wrote two books from her perspective and gave her writing credits, making her the world's first dog author!

Size

The Golden Retriever has a shoulder height of 51-61 cm (20-24 in) and weighs 25-34 kg (55-75 lbs). Golden Retrievers have a broad, rounded skull, short ears, round feet and thick, flat tails. They have black noses and kind, brown eyes.

Coat

The Golden Retriever has a double coat which comes in various shades of gold or cream (it should not be red). The outer coat is smooth, wavy and water resistant and the undercoat is thick, soft, and weather resistant. The tail and legs have longer hair. The Golden Retriever sheds heavily.

Character

The Golden Retriever is very noble, self-confident, sensitive, intelligent, and adaptable. They are one of the world's most popular pets and make great companions. Golden Retrievers are sturdy, strong, and kind, known for their adeptness at hunting and their strength of character. Golden Retrievers bark infrequently, but do bark when startled, making them poor guard dogs.

Temperament

Golden Retrievers easily get along well with their friends and companions, but can be belligerent with unknown visitors. They get along especially well with children, with whom they are gentle and patient. They are also friendly with other dogs and other household pets. The Golden Retriever is very devoted to family, and eager to please. The Golden Retriever is simply loving and loveable!
