The Golden Retriever has been an AKC-recognized breed since 1925 and is commonly used as a gun dog and for retrieving small game such as waterfowl or companionship. With its origins lying in the Scottish Highlands, this breed was developed into a very capable hunting breed by Noblemen throughout Scotland’s countryside. Great discipline and a gentle spirit make the Golden Retriever a perfect retrieval breed since the goal of this task is to bring the trophy back as undamaged as possible.
If you are not the sporting type, bringing a Golden Retriever into your family as a pet is just as rewarding because they are one of the most loyal and jovial breeds out there.
