Golden Retriever History
So obviously, the Golden retriever is one of the parent breeds, in case the name isn't a giveaway yet.
The Golden Retriever was initially bred from Flat-coated retriever, Tweed Water Spaniel, Bloodhound, and Irish setter. They are the 4rth most intelligent dog breed and are incredibly loyal and friendly.
Golden Retrievers live to please their owners. Because of their nature and the fact that they are easy to train, retrievers are the third most popular breed in America.
The Pomeranian is an adorable, miniature breed. They are energetic and intelligent dogs because they were sled dogs from the Arctic.
Pomeranians are the ideal family companion because of their size and friendly attitude. In addition, unlike the Golden Retriever, they get along with other animals.
Temperament and personality
The Pomtriever inherits the temperament from the Golden Retriever and Pomeranian parent. The mixed-breed dog is very sociable and friendly but does not like to be left alone for a long period.
The Pomeranian Golden Retriever has a well-balanced personality with a loyal, playful, and clever nature. This dog can play with anyone for several hours, and it won’t get tired.
Although Pomeranians make excellent family dogs, their size makes them unsuitable for youngsters. Golden retrievers, on the other hand, are fantastic with babies and children, but their size makes them dangerous as they can accidentally push the kid. So, in conclusion, the Pomeranian Golden Retriever mix is the perfect-sized dog for your family.
