Golden Retriever. What You Should Know.

The Golden Retriever is a medium-large breed that originated in Scotland.

This breed was created to be an all-around farm dog, used to guide the herds of livestock and guard dogs.

And became popular among nobility after Queen Victoria fell in love with them.

She had several of these dogs shipped back to England, where they continued to gain popularity.

Today, this breed is commonly known as a kind, loyal companion who thrives on human interaction.

Golden Retrievers are considered average in size for most breeds, with males averaging between 65-75 pounds and females averaging between 50-65 pounds.

Golden's enjoy cuddling on the couch at the end of a hard day but also need plenty of exercises each day.

This breed typically does well living within a house with a small yard.

Golden Retrievers are also widely popular among hunters because they have strong noses.
