The White Golden Retriever is an excellent family pet and can be called a faithful companion. Though the name suggests white, these dogs are not white but of a light ivory tan. Sometimes they have white patches of fur. The lightest colored retriever is for sure in creamy tan color. These dogs are said to be most loving and best behaved.
While searching for a retriever have a clear idea whether you prefer the American breed or the English breed. Though both have the same kind of traits and characteristics they differ physically. The White Golden Retriever is an excellent pet. They love kids, play with them and become part of family gatherings. But the truth remains that there are no pure white golden retrievers.
If you are looking for a pure white golden retriever then try to gather data regarding the dog. It is better to get a genetic test done before making the purchase. Ask for the papers regarding the parent dog. Don't fall prey to sales talk that the dog in question is a rare breed.
Moreover if you are not interested in making your dog a champion or getting approved by American Kennel Club honors (which has its own standards of acceptance of pure breeds), or Kennel Club Standard, then go ahead and bring home this beautiful dog which can steal many hearts.
