Golden Retrievers. If there was a perfect dog that represented America it would be the Golden. This friendly breed has been the star of films such as Disney's Homeward Bound and the highly recommended and globally loved Air Bud film series. They are an aesthetically pleasing dog with their bright golden fur and an infectious smile on their face constantly.
If you have small children, Golden Retrievers are quite possibly the best breed of dog for kids to grow up with. Now, the Golden is an overly energetic and rambunctious breed; There may be cases where a Golden may run into a child in an energetic fit or jump on a child sorely out of pure love and affection. There is no better breed of dog that could teach a kid responsibility and patience.
