Pure breed?

Hey guys!!
So, I adopted this really adorable puppy at the age of 45 days. And.. I'm not really sure about its breed. Some say it's a Spitz, while others say it's a white golden retriever. Yet, others say that he's a mix of both! Can someone please help me out with this? Which breed is it?
Ps: pictures attached

Welcome, Congratulations on your little guy.

He's adorable, I would say with the curly tail he may have some spitz in him.
Hard to tell at this point since he's so young but he sure is cute.

You can get a Dog DNA test from Amazon that will tell you what he is. It may not be 100% accurate though.

It’s really hard to pick out what makes up your mutt until they are mostly grown.
Probably will have a better idea after he is a year old
Does look like there might be some northern breed in there.

Cutie.

I don't see any golden retriever in the pup. Looks very cute though.

There indeed are white colored golden retrievers called British golden retrievers.
What are the features of a golden retriever puppy in 2 months, any idea?
Thanks in advance.

There isn't a breed called British golden retrievers. There is just one breed and the colors are supposed to be shades of gold from creme to dark gold. If you are in the US, that's shades of light gold to dark gold.

The attached pic is a 2 month old golden pup from the breeder I got my Jacks from.

I'm not sure about the mom, but the dad came from eastern europe (Russia/Slovakia).



Type of features I'd pay attention to are the shape of the head/skull, size of ears, shape and size of eyes, etc...

I've also attached a pic of 1 month old pups just so you can see the difference in look you'll see in a much younger pup.
