The Goldador is a beautiful, loyal and intelligent dog that is a cross between two of the most popular breeds – the Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever. The Goldador breed was first created in the early 1990s and was officially recognized as a breed in 2001.

The Goldador almost became extinct in the late 1990s due to a lack of interest from breeders. However, a few dedicated breeders continued to produce this wonderful breed and today, the Goldador is once again becoming popular.

The ancestry of the Goldador can be traced back to the early 1800s when the Golden Retriever was first bred in Scotland. The Labrador Retriever was developed in Newfoundland, Canada in the late 1800s. These two breeds were brought together in the early 1990s to create the Goldador.

The Goldador is recognized as a breed by several major kennel clubs including the American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club and United Kennel Club. This wonderful breed makes an excellent family pet and companion dog.
