About the Golden Retriever
Golden retriever males are 58-62cm tall and weigh about 29-32kg. Females are about 53-55cm tall and weigh about 25-29kg.
The golden retriever has a water-repellent coat that is wavy or flat and gold to cream in color. One of the most attractive features of this breed is the feathering on the neck, legs, thighs, underside and tail.
The dog's head is strong and broad. The ears are not very large, but they sit high on the head and hang just below the jaw line. The chest is deep, and the body is well balanced. Golden retrievers live about 10 to 13 years.
