Featured Dog of the Month: Golden Retriever
Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular dogs in America and for good reason. They are amazing dogs! Golden Retrievers originated in England in the 1800’s, so as far as dog breeds go, they are relatively new. The breed was created from a yellow wavy-coated retriever and a Tweed Water Spaniel in an effort to produce a dog capable of swimming and retrieving birds with great effectiveness. Golden Retrievers made their way to America in the early 1900’s and were recognized by the AKC in 1927.
Golden Retrievers are beautiful dogs with a powerful head, strong neck and well-developed hindquarters. They are fast, athletic and excellent swimmers. Coats are water-repellent and dense. Outer coat is straight or wavy. Golden Retrievers have short ears for their size and thick tails which are carried near horizontal. Male dogs weigh between 65 and 70 pounds and females between 55 and 65 pounds. Coats come in various shades of gold.
