The Golden Retriever is one of America’s most popular dog breeds – and for good reason! They are beautiful Scottish gundogs, known to be extremely good at search and rescue, hunting and helping to guide the blind.
Male Golden Retrievers can grow to be between 65-75 pounds, and 24 inches in height. While females can grow to be between 55-65 pounds, and 21-23 inches in height. The life expectancy for both male and females is normally between 10-12 years.
Golden Retrievers are relatively easy to train. They make for fantastic household pets and are very family-friendly. This breed is a very outgoing one, which is also eager to please and be loved. Even as grown adults they usually remain very playful, loving and active.
Goldens are muscular, medium-sized dogs which are well-known for their beautiful, thick golden coat – which is how they get their name. They also have a long fluffy tail.
Whether you are a sportsman in need of a trustworthy companion, or a family looking to add an additional fun loving member to share memories with – Golden Retrievers are one of the best dog breeds that you can count on.
