Because they are devoted, friendly, and intelligent, Golden Retrievers are the third-most popular breed of dog, following Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds. Because of their qualities, they are favored as both hunting and guide dogs.


  • History: The story of the Golden Retriever begins in Scotland in 1865, the same year the American Civil War ended. Dudley Marjoribanks, a Scottish landowner, purchased the only yellow puppy in a litter of black wavy-coated retrievers. The Scotsman wished to breed quality retrievers for the environment of his Scottish homeland, and he joined the yellow dog to a Tweed Water Spaniel and kept the yellow pups that resulted.
  • Scientific Name: Canis familiaris
