Golden Retriever Smile
This beautiful, 120 pound, Golden Retriever sits on the back porch full of unconditional love. The sweet smile on his face is almost infectious and there is no way you can resist being drawn to him.
The breed was originally bred to be a hunting dog to retrieve waterfowl such as ducks and birds. They got their name because they could retrieve the birds undamaged. Their love for water is instinctive for them. The Golden Retriever has a dense inner coat that acts as a natural water repellant and provides warmth for them. These dogs are great for suburban or country environments. They need a lot of exercise, but they do tend to like to roam, so it is best that they be kept in a fenced area.
They are very intelligent dogs which makes them great as guide dogs, hearing dogs, dogs for drug detection in law enforcement, and for rescue details. Because of their loving demeanor, they make a great family pet and are at the top of the list of the most popular dogs in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
