Thanks for rescueing Cash. I got Jack in pretty much the same way & he looks alot like Cash although bigger(80 lbs)Your right in getting him neutered leave the breeding to the breeders.I'd say he's full blooded but like you said it won't matter.A Goldens love is absolute

He looks like a beautiful golden to me. At one year he has not gotten his adult coat or grown to his full size. Sounds like he is really fitting in with your family. And despite the best of intentions, a lot of goldens end up sleeping in their owner's beds. They are such great snugglers!

all the features point to the American type of golden retriever than the British type

Americans are lankier, longer snout, legs, tail.... coat is usually thinner with not as much feathering

Americans allow for more red coats also

He's about as golden as a golden gets (purebred golden). (Your friend is wrong about size by the way.) Golden males don't reach full development until almost age 3. This guy is just getting out of the puppy stage.

The mounting is a training issue and won't be corrected with neutering. You're going to have to teach him that mounting people is not acceptable behaviour. Try to get a hold of his paperwork. You may find some very nice dogs in his pedigree, maybe some Ambertrail or Adirondac in there.

Handsome guy your Cash. Looks very golden to me too. It would be interesting if you could get a copy of his pedgree. It looks like you cashed in on a great dog.

Buck was so red I was asked a number of times if he was an Irirsh Setter. Hving owned 2 Irirsh, I could not see it myself. Also he was 95 pounds of muscle. his full brother (earlier litter) was the same shade of red as Buck but only 67 ounds--he took after the petite mother, Buck after the husky dad. Scooter was a triffice duck dog and being smaller was great for being in the blind.

Hunter (my avatar) and KayCee were littermates. We were going to just get the male, but fell in love with her adnended up buying them both. Hunter was tall, long and lean at 72 pounds, a a lighter color. We use to call him the long lean playing machine. He had a large boxy head and "treetrunk legs" and hugefeet. Kaycee was 66 pounds, not as tall, shorter body, smaller head and beautiful small feet. She was a shade darker than Hunter.

Honey, well she is our adopted mix. most do take her for full golden, but she isn't and the vet and I think there is a drop or two of sight hound in her. She is a beautifl light blond, not whe cream, but light blond. We had3 full goldens, Buck, Hunte and KayCee went we adopted her, and not being full godne has never matter to us. We got her Dec. 7, 2002 and she is now between 10 1/2 and 11, and is our only remaining dog.

I am certainly glad that being pure or not doesn't matter becaue that does make them love you any more or any less. Congrats on that beuatiful boy of yours.

SCOOTER 6/14/94 - 8/22/99
BUCK 2/8/95 - 5/15/07
HUNTER 8/19/99 - 10/16/03
KAYCEE 8-19-99 -5-25-08
HONEY ADOPTED GROWN 12/07/02 - 8/13/14
SOPHIE 1/8/04 - ADOPTED 2/17/15 - 10/12/16
GREAT PYRENEES SHAGGY adopted AT AGE 7 8/31/14 - 9/23/14 AGE 7
GREAT PYRENEES SIR MOOSE ADOPTED 9/30/14 ---- 12/5/18 AGE 11 1/2

Looks like a purebred Golden to me! Griffey is a medium red and has been called an Irish Setter a few times. Welcome to the forum and thank you for rescuing Cash!
