15 Reasons Why Golden Retrievers Are The Best Dogs Ever

Warning: this post contains cuteness overload. [Editor’s note — The title of this post is misleading. ALL dogs are the best dogs.]

1. Goldens were bred to retrieve, so you know they can play a good game of catch.

Look at that form!

2. They also love the water, which makes them a great companion on summer days at the pool.

3. Their intelligence allows them to fill a variety of roles, including service dogs for the blind.

4. They also comfort people and help aid relief efforts.

My heart. It hurts.

5. Goldens are basically the ultimate family dog.

I mean, look at that family portrait…

Are you kidding?!

Too cute for words.

6. They’re the best kind of holiday gift you can get.

Only if you promise to commit and take care of them!

7. Let’s not forget how ADORABLE they are as puppies.

10. And then they grow up looking like this. What a perfect specimen.

11. They have very friendly personalities.

12. And they don’t mind posing for pics.

13. Did we mention how athletic they are?

14. And famous.

I don’t even know how many movies Air Bud made at this point.

15. Shadow from Homeward Bound is basically the spokesdog for all Golden Retrievers.

That moment he fell near the train tracks, and you didn’t know what was going to happen…

And when Shadow came through the woods, the tears POURED.

If you didn’t cry during this scene, you don’t have a heart.

Bottom line, Golden Retrievers are perfect.
