Origin of Golden Retrievers

Golden retrievers were bred by crossing a Tweed Water Spaniel with a yellow Wavy Coated Retriever. Retrievers were used to fetch things for their masters. If a hunter shot down a game bird, the dog might be used to retrieve the bird and bring it to his master. Today the Golden Retriever still enjoys fetching things like balls and things we drop. This can be very useful! 

The origins of dog breeds.

Appearance: Attractive gold or cream colour. Coat may be flat or wavy and needs brushing.  Legs are feathered.

Height: dogs 56 - 61 cm, bitches 51 - 56 cms at shoulder

Temperament:  Golden retrievers are good natured, easy to train. They are large dogs who need exercise. 

Retrievers bring things back. God wants to bring US back when we get into trouble! 

Quote from the Bible, "I will bring them back. They will pass through the sea of trouble. I will strengthen them, declares the Lord."

Zechariah chapter 10 verses 10 - 12
