Golden Retriver puppies for saleOther, Pretoria
There is an interesting story regarding how the Golden Retriever came into existence. This species was bred with an intention to use it as a hunting companion. The idea for this came from the hunters who wanted to have a dog that could act as their gundogs. It was thought that such a dog can be helpful in finding and retrieving lame hens, upland game, birds and small sized preys. Initially, the breeders kept this aspect in mind and wanted to keep the dog’s mouth soft so that they were able to retrieve the kill without damaging it further.
Since the Golden Retriever is known to be passionate about water, these dogs are the perfect choice as hunting companions that can retrieve the waterfowl. They are also known to seek the attention of their master all the while, and love playing with them. With their happy-go-lucky attitude, these dogs can mingle easily with your kids and serve as good companions to the little ones. Your Golden Retriever should weigh between 65 to 75 pounds and ideally should be 22 and 24 at the withers.
