The Golden Retriever is a well-balanced, strong, active dog with a kind expression, gentle manner, and an alert and self-confident disposition.
He is trustworthy, friendly, and reliable; excessively shy or high strung dogs are atypical of the breed and usually the result of poor breeding practices or inadequate socialization.
Joy and loyalty wrapped in sunshine is the perfect description of the Golden Retriever, a top dog for families, handicapped owners, and obedience competitors.
