Cream Colored Golden Retriever Questions

2 posts in this topic

There is a cream colored golden retriever available. I'm considering buying it...I'm not sure how seriously. The wife of the couple who own it now never owned dogs before, and doesn't like it in the house. I could get it for a song.

My wife likes how mellow it is. I would want to hunt it, but this couple doesn't hunt so it’s had no training yet, although it is just under a year old. Any thoughts? What are the differences between Golden Retrievers and the cream colored counterpart? A friend said they run a little smaller.

Hair color had no bearing what-so-ever on size and or hunting ability. It is just hair color.... no different than black labs vs. yellow labs. If it is around a year old, you are more or less looking at it's full size. Mostly just some filling out to do.

What kind of breeding it came from will make all the difference. Was it from trial or gun dog breedings or jsut pet and/or show lines. You can always take a frozen or live pigeon over to see if it has any desire to chase it or carry it. You will have to work at a slower pace with an older dog to expose it to gun fire and birds etc. But at a year, it is definitley in the doable range if she has the desire to be a hunting dog.

Good Luck!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
