The shelter said he is a purebred Golden Retriever, but his hair is pretty short. His eyes are a yellow color. He weighs 54 pounds, at four years old. Could he be mixed with something, and if so, what? Also, he has, short, apricot fur on his umm....genital area, which you can kind of see in the picture. Is this normal, or could it cause a problem? And for the names, I already have some picked out, which one do you think fits him best;
Thriller *tribute to Michael R.I.P*
Other suggestions are welcome, but please, also pick out of these three.
Aww he's so cute, and he almost looks like the dog that I got for christmas but she is a little bit lighter than your dog. But yeah I have no idea what type of dog mine is, the shelter told us that she was some kind of terrier but she doesn't look like a terrier at all. But when I took her to the vet he said that she definitely had some retriever in her and maybe some type of hound but I don't really care what she is all I know is that I love her.
Hero sounds good. And I think that you're really kind for adopting from a shelter. He might have a little of a different breed in him, but I can't place it. I wouldn't say he's 100 % Golden, maybe 90 %.
That is definately a cross breed and far too small for a pure bred golden retriever.
I'm not sure what he is crossed with though but he's gorgous. Congrats!
Oh and also, I love the name Chewy, it reminds me of the caramel bit in a chewy bar, which is the same colour as him! :)
i doubt its a pure bred golden as it has white on its belly
but it definatly has golden in it
it maybe crossed with a collie
he looks gorgeous!!!
as for his name i like thriller or hero best...
dont name him something that you feel silly shouting when he runs away from you or when they call his name out at the vets...
i fully believe dogs personalities can be made by the wrong name...
my mate called her rottie x lab pup Killa and he turned really aggressive...
based on that if u want a dog that chews everything up call him chewy...
i say thriller or Harley and the dog looks like a golden retriever mixed with a nova scotia duck tolling retriever. That won't cause any problems at all for some breeds its normal so you don't have to worry about it unless your uncomfortable with it then go get it checked.
here's what a nova scotia looks like:

Possible is purebred, but looks more like a mix to me.
