One of America’s most beloved breeds, the Golden Retriever is intelligent, sociable, and loyal. Originally bred as a duck retriever, the Golden Retriever is an active and playful breed. So playful, in fact, that they remain puppy-like well into adolescence. Their working background provides them with a love for jobs and would be happy with any task you give them. Thanks to their sociable and gentle nature, they make terrible watchdogs. They are more likely to greet a stranger than bark at them. They are trustworthy and calm around children and make amazing family companions.
