You can’t help falling in love with Retrievers!
There’s no doubt that every doggo is a good boy, but something about retrievers in particular is very awesome. I know what everyone is thinking, is it because “they retrieve gold?” Well, I wish they did, but to be very honest retrievers are so cool that they don’t need to!
Retrievers are in general one of the most obedient and intelligent dog breeds ever. They have a dual ability of being both friendly and protective which allows them to act as both domestic pets and guard dogs. They are called retrievers because they were primarily bred for hunting.
While they make great hunting companions, deep down they are very soft in nature. The following photos that we have compiled for you explain why retrievers are the most loved dogs in the world!
They are easily entertained.
They love to cuddle.

When we talk about Retrievers we mean both Labrador Retrievers and also Golden Retrievers. Though they have a lot in common, they both also have their own unique distinct qualities that make them individually special.
Golden Retrievers as the same suggests have a thick, wavy coat of fur which is usually white, golden or golden red. It also darkens with their age. Goldren Retrievers are prone to a number of health conditions including hip dysplasia, eye problems and epilepsy.
They are easily trained and their breed is the third most popular in the US. They love swimming. They are atheletic in nature and of course gorgeous to look at!

On the other hand, Labradors have two layers: a short and thick uppercoat, and a water-resistent inner coat. It protects them against wet and cold weather. They have webbed toes which make them great swimmers. Other than being domestic pets, Labradors make great therapy, protection and rescue dogs! They are also the most popular dog breed in the US&UK.
