The oldest of the retriever breeds, with some Water Spaniel and Poodle in the background, this duck-retrieving gundog is a real water baby – whatever the temperature.
An active home that doesn't mind a wet dog. If there's water nearby, this dog will find it.
Someone who wants the 'friends with everyone' kind of retriever temperament. The Curly Coat is a little more discerning.

Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Short and curly
Natural good looks, won't keep growing like a hedge.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
