History of Golden Retrievers

Golden Retrievers were bred by crossing a Tweed Water Spaniel with a 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 fetch ("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!
