20. Golden Retriever
Golden Retrievers are one of the most beloved and famous dog breeds. They are gorgeous, friendly, and intelligent. They are fairly large, usually ranging from 60-70 pounds and 20-24 inches in height. These dogs live for around 10-12 years. What makes this breed great for seniors is their intelligence and playfulness. Golden Retrievers are easily trained and can work as assistance dogs for the blind or disabled. Further, as they require a great deal of exercise, they are well-suited to a senior who desires to stay in shape.
