Golden Retriever Dog Breed Information Guide

The working ability that has made the Golden Retriever such a useful hunting companion also make him an ideal guide, assistance and search and rescue dog. The Golden Retriever originated in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1800s and was used predominantly for hunting.

The breed was developed by Lord Tweedmouth, whose goal was to create a superb retriever suited to the Scottish climate, terrain and available game. He crossed his original "Yellow Retriever" with the Tweed Water Spaniel (now extinct) found on his estate.

Later integrations of Irish Setter, Bloodhound, and more Tweed Water Spaniel produced the retriever we know today.
