Seven of the Most Interesting Golden Retriever Mixes

Mixed breeds are not only a popular thing now, for breeders, but it’s become lucrative, too. Hybrids come in all kinds of combinations and Golden Retrievers happens to be one of the most popular breeds to mix others with. Golden Retrievers are known for their sweet disposition, fun-loving personality, and loyalty, which is why dog breeders choose to mix and match breeds with Retrievers. You may be familiar with some Golden Retriever mixes, while some may not be as commonly known. If you are looking for a Golden Retriever mix but aren’t sure which combination is best suited for you, keep reading to learn about seven of the most common Golden Retriever mixes and what type of pet the mixes create.

1. Golden Cocker Retriever

The Golden Cocker Retriever is a mix between a Golden Retriever and Cocker Spaniel. Both are great dogs and have great personality traits, however, there are some differences in the two and it is hard to say how much your puppy will resemble either of the breeds. Overall, Cockers are fun-loving dogs that love people, love to play and are great with kids but do need to be socialized from an early age. One drawback to the Cocker is its excitability. Cocker Spaniels have one little known problem when they get overly excited, they can pee a little, though this is a minor detail when you look at their overall best traits. Golden Retrievers are obedient, smart and loyal family dogs. The two together make beautiful dogs, both physically and with their temperament.

2. Golden Doodle

The Golden Doodle has become a very popular breed over the years. This is a combination of mixing the Golden Retriever with a Standard Poodle. When you mix these two breeds, typically the offspring inherit most of their features from the Golden Retriever heritage, while you can definitely see some Poodle traits, such as a bit of a curl to the longer fur. Poodles are highly intelligent, playful and full of personality; they love to make their owners laugh. When you put these two breeds together, what you end up with is a large, but highly intelligent, family-oriented and yes, entertaining dog.

3. Goldendox or GoldenDoxie

This hybrid is the combination of a Golden Retriever and Dachshund. This combination can give you either a small or medium dog as a result, weighing anywhere from 30-60 pounds. They are beautiful dogs with great personalities. They are also very smart and affable, and many times they are used in such tasks as drug detection, or train for competitive obedience competitions. They make great family pets and are happy and willing little learners.

4. Golden Mountain Dog

Mixing a Golden Retriever with a Bernese Mountain creates a large, to huge breed of dog. These dogs fall in both the working and sporting dog groups and are cheerful and happy dogs. They love to get out and get exercise, and require plenty of it due to their size. They love to hunt; they are also very obedient and intelligent dogs, though they do shed a lot and will want to be prepared for cleaning up after your Golden Mountain Dog, if this is the breed for you.

5. Gollie

When you mix a Collie and a Golden retriever, you get a Gollie. Gollies are very intelligent and very active. They are a large breed and best known for their abilities to be good watch dogs and herders. They have a life expectancy of 12-15 years when kept healthy, and one way to do this is to make sure they get plenty of exercise. Gollies are best suited for active owners due to their love of activity.

6. Golden Boxer

Boxers love children and can be protective of its family. Between the two breeds, you should be getting a very loyal, sensitive and fun pet who loves affection, both to give and get.
