Retrievers are working dogs, originally bred to hunt and retrieve game in the Scottish highlands.
Today they're still great hunters and love to be outdoors and active, but their most popular role is that of beloved family companion and they are consistently featured in the AKC's 'Top 10 Most Popular Dog Breeds' list. As of 2011 they hold the #3 spot.
Here are some pictures of Golden puppies enjoying the great outdoors....
These sweet puppy faces pretty much sum up the ideal Golden temperament - sunny, relaxed and steady.
Although they will be happy to bark at a stranger approaching your house, they'll most likely then greet him with lots of sloppy kisses! This is not a guardian breed, but they are confident and friendly, not usually nervous or shy.
The gorgeous silky, golden coat is the trademark of this Retriever and it comes in a variety of shades - anywhere from the palest cream, to a deep burnished red. Take a look at the next set of Golden Retriever puppy photos and you'll see what I mean....
A versatile, fun-loving breed who excels at outdoor sports, obedience, therapy work and in many other areas, the Golden also has a sense of humor and is a great companion just about anytime, anywhere.
