Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is a breed of dog, which was traditionally developed as a gundog. During hunting they are used to retrieve shot waterfowl and upland game. Their breed is know to have a soft mouth in order for them to retrieve game unharmed and an inborn love of water.

Their cleverness and resourcefulness sees them engaged in a variety of tasks as well as search and rescue and illegal drug detection, hunting dogs and as their popular task being guide dogs. They have a welcoming, eager-to-please nature and tolerant behavior made them known for being family dogs in the whole world today.

A little dissimilarity exists between the British type Golden Retrievers common all through Australia and Europe and those of American lines and these differences are being detected in the breed standards. This type is bigger-boned, shorter, with a more square head and or muzzle and are generally a little heavier. Males are supposed to be between 56–61 cm (22–24 inch) at the withers and females a little shorter at between 51–56 cm (20–22 inch).

Weight, on the other hand, is not particular in the UK standard. The KC standard calls for a level topline and straight hindquarters without the slight rear angulation found in American lines. The eyes of American line dogs are inclined to be set further apart than those of English lines and can appear to be slanted and triangular in shape by similarity.

A Golden Retriever of British breeding can have a fur color of any shade of gold or cream, on the other hand, red or mahogany are not acceptable colours. in the beginning, cream was not an acceptable colour in the UK standard, however, by 1936 the standard was changed and included cream color. It was felt this prohibiting was a mistake as the original "yellow" retrievers of the 19th century were lighter in colour than the then recent standard allowed.

As with America lines white is an improper colour in the show ring. The British KC standard is allowed in all countries except for US and Canada. Some breeders of this type in America may trade in their dogs to progress bloodlines.
