The Golden Retriever sports the classic outline of the quintessential American family dog, and in fact, he is consistently among the top five most popular breeds. With his long, soft, golden coat, the Golden Retriever requires daily grooming to keep his fur as cuddly as it looks. Though active and playful, the Golden or Goldie is one of the few larger breeds that can comfortably tolerate an apartment lifestyle.
