The friendliest!

Goldens are known to be an emotionally intelligent dog; many Golden Retriever owners will tell you that they seem to know exactly how to comfort them. Part of that intuition is what makes them good service and guide dogs.

But they were originally bred to be bird retrieval dogs for waterfowl hunters and make great sporting dogs in the field. Their golden coats are water-repellant and can range from a dark auburn to white.

Golden Retrievers are America's third most popular dog breed behind Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds. They make great family dogs due to their desire to please and agreeable nature.
