The Golden Retriever dog breed could be the ambassador of the dog world. Friendly, outgoing and devoted, this breed is a great example of what it means to be a faithful canine companion. With a face that always seems to be smiling, Goldens make friends with nearly everyone they meet. The Golden Retriever temperament is irrepressibly clownish, and the dogs retain puppy-like characteristics well into adulthood.
Golden Retrievers also have energy to spare. These exuberant and powerful dogs don’t seem to have an “off” switch. Despite their tendency to be excitable, Goldens are fantastic family dogs. They’re generally trustworthy and reliable dogs with love to spare for all family members, and anyone else who enters the home. This kind, puppylike pooch is a fantastic fit for most families on the go.
