I'm in the UK and looking for an American lineage dog if possible.
I have been in touch today with a breeder who has a female American imported Golden Retriever she thinks has been mated successfully with a European sire .Would I be right in thinking those puppies could look more like an American line or do they follow the sires more . Or am I being silly and its pot luck.

Sophie has british bloodlines. She looks like her mom which is a canadian or should I say american type ;) . Her siblings are much lighter than she is but do look more american style.

This is Sophie's Father's pedigree

This is Sophie's Mom's pedigree

Neither are Champions but their parents are (we'll see about Sophie)

This is a picture of My Sophie

It will depend on which of the two is more prepotent. In general, you assume that the more tightly bred of the parents will be more dominant but that is not always the case. If both are equally tightly or loosely bred, you could have a mix :) with some looking more like their father and some more like their mother.

What does prepotent mean ?
am I right in thinking you pick the puppy that looks more like the mother if she's what your looking for ?
