Because they are devoted, friendly, and intelligent, Golden Retrievers are the third-most popular breed of dog, following Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds. Because of their qualities, they are favored as both hunting and guide dogs. History: The story of the Golden Retriever begins in Scotland in 1865, the same year the American Civil War ended. Dudley Marjoribanks, a Scottish landowner, purchased the only yellow puppy in a litter of black wavy-coated retrievers. Scientific Name: Canis familiaris. Characteristics: The friendly Golden Retrievers look ready to wag their tails and play. Let them loose as decorations or prizes at a dog-themed party, use them in charms or bracelets to remember favorite family pets, or use them as gifts for other dog lovers.
