BREED INFORMATION

Although a variety of hunting dogs had been used for centuries, the advent of the shotgun created a need for a specialized “retriever”. In the early days, any dog that returned with game was identified as a “retriever” but they mostly consisted of mixes of the St. John’s Water Dog, a variety of setters and spaniels, and a dash of working collie.
