In order to keep your Golden Retriever looking dapper but also protecting their health, you should consider giving them a trim or cut. A Full Shave is recommended for Goldies with medical conditions or severe matting, while a Kennel Cut is great at keeping a Goldie looking sharp and neat. In addition, you can try out Field Cut before bringing the Goldie on an outdoor trip.
Golden Retrievers can cost between $300 and $2,000. They are the most popular dog breeds in the USA because of their relatively long lifespan for a medium sized dog, hence their demand and price are on the high side. However, it is likely possible to adopt one from a rescue for free since this breed is more common. Expect monthly maintenance cost to be about $100 to $150.
Imagine mixing a sassy Chihuahua with a cheery Golden, and you’ve got the best of both worlds in a Golden Chi. Then, we’ve got the adorable Golden Yorkshire, part Yorkie and part Golden. And of course, how can we forget the lovely mix of Poodle and Golden in a Golden Doodle?
Golden Retrievers get their name from the beautiful, golden brown coat they have come to be associated with. However, this is not the only aesthetic there is with these dogs. We shall take a look at four aesthetic varieties of the Golden Retriever, including rare coat colors like the English Cream Golden Retrievers.
The Goberian is usually called the Golden Retriever Husky Mix, and it is a cross between a purebred Golden Retriever and a purebred Siberian Husky. It’s a 50-50% first generation mix dog of a Golden Retriever and a Siberian Husky.
Both of these dog breeds are intelligent, energetic, and great with families. Some of these characteristics are seen in the Golden Retriever Australian Shepherd mix. At the same time, the result of this crossbreed makes it almost impossible to clearly define how a Golden Aussie puppy is going to look or behave.
A Red Golden Retriever is a purebred Golden Retriever with more intense red coloring in its coat. Red Golden Retrievers have predominant red pigments, known as phaeomelanin, in their coat coloring, caused by a mutation of the MCR1 (“E locus”) gene.
Mini Golden Retriever is a cross-breed of Golden Retriever and Miniature Poodle. Your lively fellow is not like the Golden Retriever with dwarfism. It is a hybrid. The size, weight and all other characters of your fellow depend upon the inherited genes from different parents.
So, are Black Golden Retrievers a real thing? Unfortunately, there is no definite evidence that purebred Black Golden Retrievers exist, but there isn’t evidence against it either. If you do see a Black Golden Retriever, it is most likely due to a genetic mutation or cross-breeding. Purebred Black Golden retrievers are extremely rare.
