The vet said she's either full golden or at least part golden. She's about 2 months old... What do you think?

She's playful but mostly naps around and cuddles. Could be due to her recovery from a pneumothorax... She's intelligent and I started clicker training yesterday and she learned her name quickly! One thing I notice is that her head a little smaller than it would be for a Golden? I have no idea, but it'd be nice to know! I've heard so many good things about Golden Retrievers. :)

She is adorable! She looks to have alot of Golden, but she has some lift in her ears that might signify another breed, which I dunno. WHatever she is, she is cute cute cute!!

She is adorable! She sure looks mostly golden to me, though I would guess more along 10-12 weeks old. She seems to have such a sweet nature!

@Oakley's : Hahaha I know! My cat got a little hissy when she first met Delilah so I think she stuck with that first impression. :p
@Foster : I thought the same thing! I studied up on them before I met her in person and I was very surprised at this giant fluffball they carried to me. :)

Absolutely adorable!!! She looks golden to me. She is getting her "Racing stripe" down her back which will be her color as time goes on. Enjoy!!!

She's beautiful and sure looks golden from what I see. Most pups will eventually match the color of their ears when their adult coat comes in. Keep those pics coming.

Pneumothorax is when a puncture/hole in the lung leaks out air. It can be fatal if serious/untreated but hers was so minor it literally cleared up in about a week and a half. When I first saw her I could run my fingers alone her side and feel crackly bubbles. Ironic because my husband had a spontaneous pneumothorax in 2009 so that helped to tug at his heart strings to get her adopted. ;)

OH! Another thing, my mother's a teacher and was talking about her at work and a fellow teacher had heard of someone selling or giving away golden retriever puppies recently. She could be one of those... she probably was clipped by a car. She was at the vet for over a week and the last 3 days {the 3 days after I adopted her officially} she was still unclaimed.

She is adorable. In some of the pictures she looks fullblooded and in that last picture in your first post the way her ears were she looked like she could have some australian shepherd in her but all the rest and in your signature she looks full blooded. But no matter what she is just the cutest. And with that story of her surgery and your hubby's surgery it was meant to be.

Glad you have joined us.

Well, she certainly deserves all the love and spoiling you have to offer. She's adorable and her rocky start is tragic. Who on earth has a little one like that to be hit by a car??!!!!

Sounds like a Godwink to me. :)

She looks 100 percent golden to me, you will be able to tell more once she gets older.
