Originally from Scotland in the nineteenth century, the Golden Retriever was first used as a hunting dog, using their soft mouth to collect birds shot down by their owners. Over time, due to his docile temperament and companionship, the Golden became a popular dog with families.
Despite its large size, the breed can adapt well in any environment, even in small apartments (considering that owners have time to do daily walks, of course). In addition, the Golden dogs are expensive to maintain because they need a lot of special care, mainly because of their fur, requiring frequent bathing and brushing.
If you choose to have a Golden Retriever as a pet, you will have a faithful companion, very docile, friendly and intelligent , occupying the # 4 position in the rank of canine intelligence.
