Description

The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular dogs in the U.S. and is affectionate, obedient and loyal to a fault. Originally bred as a hunting dog for retrieving waterfowl it makes an ideal pet for any type of family because of its patience, versatility and adaptability.  Its body is a bit longer than it is tall and it has a strong, lovely athletic build. Their coat comes in various shades of gold and is dense, waterproof and may be wavy or straight. Interestingly, the Golden Retriever is very calm and relaxed indoors despite its hunting roots, though it immensely enjoys activities, such as carrying objects around in its mouth and a good game of catch. The breed is faithful, obedient and easy to train.
