History and Basic Info
The Golden Retriever is a medium sized dog which historically, was used to retrieve animals from hunting parties/competitions. Their name was instilled by their love of water and ability to retrieve animals undamaged.
Golden Retrievers have a dense inner coat providing them with warmth and a way to repel water off their body. They are intelligent, and playful thus making them the 5th most popular dog in the United States and 8th in the UK. Source
