How the Golden Retriever Came To Be

The Golden Retriever was “created” by Lord Tweedmouth in Britain in the 1800s. Tweedmouth wanted a dog that would live to retrieve, especially waterfowl. He wanted a dog that was loyal and kind, with much spirit and enthusiasm. Many breeds are believed to be used to produce the Golden Retriever, such as the Tweed Water Spaniel (now extinct), Newfoundland, Irish Setter, wavy-coated retriever, Bloodhound, and a wide variety of water spaniels. His breeding records from 1835 to 1890 were made public in 1952. The first official litter of four Goldens was born in 1868 and were named Crocus, Primrose, Cowslip, and Ada. These Goldens were continuously line-bred to produce the Golden Retriever that we know today!
