Golden retrievers are known for their warm and loving temperament. this breed has a keen intelligence that makes them marvelous guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf, hunting dogs, detection dogs, and search and rescue participants. Their friendly and gentle temperament, however, means they are not well-suited as guard dogs.
In this drawing, Goldie is posed in a “hero” shot – the dog looks noble and loyal. The wisps of fur flying from the coat add a sense of life and movement – this loving pooch is always on the move; always looking up with eager eyes for the next game to play and person to adore. The thick fur at the neck and ears as well as the multiple layers of golds and reds complete the traditional golden retriever portrait.
