Golden Retriever Mix

Golden Retriever mixes are wonderful dogs with personalities that are extremely unique to their breed. Here are some facts about this amazing breed for those considering owning one. Before Golden Retriever mixes became such a popular family dog, they belonged to a group of dogs that were used for sports in the United Kingdom. Particularly, they were bred to retrieve game birds because of their knack for bringing animals back to their owner (over land and water) while maintaining a soft enough grip as to not puncture the animal. Now, golden retriever mixes are best known as family dogs because of their loyalty to groups of people and their gentleness with children.

The Golden Retriever Mix tends to be a larger breed of dog that is lean but athletic in build. Golden Retriever mixes often have notably wide heads and strong necks. Dogs that have golden retriever in them are usually slightly longer than they are tall. The average weight of a Golden Retriever mix is fifty-five to seventy five pounds, depending on whether it is a male or female. Personality: Golden Retriever mixes are considered hunting dogs and are known as one of the most loyal and kid breeds of dogs. The intelligence of a Golden Retriever mix combined with its love for pleasing its owner makes it very quick to learn. Just as its name suggests, a retriever mix loves to bring objects to its owner and will greatly enjoy playing games like fetch. They are very athletic and have a lot of energy potential, but they typically act in a very calm way. Golden Retriever mixes can be kept outdoors, but they prefer to be indoors or wherever people are. These dogs are ideal for families because they are extremely friendly with adults and children alike.
