    Golden Retriever Puppies

    According to the AKC, the Golden Retriever was bred predominantly for hunting.  This breed is extremely popular in the U.S. and with good reason. Golden Retrievers are quite smart and have a desire to please their owners.  Originating in Scotland, the Golden Retriever was bred to create a dog that had great skills in retrieval and was well acclimated to the weather and types of game available.  The Golden Retriever is actually a cross of a few breeds including the Irish Setter, Bloodhound, and Tweed Water Spaniel.


    There are no different varieties of the Golden Retriever .
