The Golden Retriever is a friendly, loving, intelligent, cheerful, gentle, and energetic dog. It is the second most popular breed of dog in America, according to the American Kennel Club (the Labrador Retriever is even more popular). The Golden Retriever originated in Scotland in the 1800's. It was bred by Lord Tweedmouth to retrieve birds that were shot during a hunt.

Anatomy: The Golden Retriever is a strong, graceful, and muscular dog. The thick, water-repellent coat is flat or wavy and ranges in color from cream to deep golden brown. Males are from 23 to 24 inches (59-61 cm) tall at the shoulders and weigh from 65-75 pounds (30-34 kg); females are slightly smaller. The tail is fringed and often wags.
