Golden Retriever Puppy (Jack) Playing in the Rain for the First Time
Jack's human explained on YouTube, "Dog loves the water. Couldn't understand how it was coming from the sky."
NOTE: Once fully grown, these dogs can stand as tall as 21-24 inches at their shoulders, and can weigh upwards of 60-75 pounds. Of course, goldens are incredibly friendly, but they may freak out any smaller children that might be around, possibly even knocking them down when excitedly greeting them.
Golden retrievers are considered to be the fourth smartest dog breeds in the world, trailing behind border collies (1st), poodles (2nd), and German shepherds (3rd).
Golden Retrievers are compatible with other dogs, cats, and most livestock. They are particularly valued for their high level of sociability towards people, calmness, and willingness to learn. Because of this, they are commonly used as guide dogs, mobility assistance dogs, and search and rescue dogs.
