Country of Origin:
The Golden Retriever was developed in
the late nineteenth century from a cross of flat- and wavy-coated retrievers,
tweed water spaniels, and red setters. It was bred by British aristocrats as a
retriever and companion. The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular
companion dogs, but is also used for a variety of work, including hunting,
search and rescue and assistance work.
The Golden Retriever is a medium to
large-size, athletic dog. It has a broad head with small drop ears, brown eyes,
and a black or brownish black nose. The double coat has a soft, dense undercoat
and a thick, straight or wavy outer coat in various shades of gold. There is a
ruff around the neck and feathering at the legs, chest, belly and tail. The coat
is shortest at the head, ears, paws and front of legs.
