Have you ever wondered why dogs are so lovable? Is it because of their cuteness? Their friendly attitude? Their loyalty?
These creatures are so majestic that you can’t resist holding one as soon as you come across it. Mark Twain, the author of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, says “The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”. Isn’t that the noblest wish you’ve ever heard?
What’s even more impressing about dogs is the wide variety of breeds in the world, which makes choosing a favorite a frustrating task. How can you prefer one over the other?
However, let’s be honest here, everyone has a particular breed that they favor, and for me, it’s the English Cream Golden Retriever
Facts about the English Cream Golden Retriever
Golden retrievers are amongst the most popular dogs in the world. Many sub-breeds fall under the primary race, which may be a bit confusing. British, American and Canadian are just to name some. The distinction can be nuanced, especially considering how similar they are.
Retrievers are available in different colors
- Dark gold
Among the four, my personal favorite is the English Cream Golden Retriever, as it combines the beauty of both the Golden and White retrievers. Here are the main facts that you need to know about this majestic dog:
The cream retriever has a light creamy color, and while most think that they’re an independent breed, it’s a well-known fact that they fall under the golden category.
Although some people think it’s a superior dog, statistics proved the opposite, as the cream color is common among golden retrievers, and it isn’t a sign of excellent health or activity.
These dogs have long coats that require constant maintenance and grooming to keep them in the best shape. It’s recommended to groom your dog on a weekly basis to reduce its shedding, which increases during spring.
As for measurements, these dogs can reach 21-24 inches in height and 55-75 pounds in weight, with a life expectancy of 10-12 years.
Just like any golden retriever, the Creamy English one is energetic, playful, and very active most of the time.
English Cream Golden Retrievers love attention; there’s no denying it. Maybe for that reason were they the stars of countless Hollywood movies. But do not be fooled, for these dogs are affectionate as well and would express their love for their owners whenever they can.
On the other hand, English Cream Golden Retrievers are smart, so forget about that “it’s blonde, it’s stupid” stereotype.
Cream golden retrievers are highly trainable and can learn new skills on the go.
Although many people think this breed is rare, that’s a false belief as you can find light-colored retrievers almost anywhere. What’s unusual are the pure white and the platinum retrievers. Beware if you decide to look for one of those, as many sellers will try to trick you into buying a light-colored cream retriever for a high price by pretending that it’s a white one.
When it comes to adopting a retriever, you can’t go wrong, no matter what you choose. English Cream Golden Retrievers are among the most awesome dogs out there, both aesthetically and personality-wise, but they require good care, just like any other dog.
