Hunters, fishers, and even boat pullers, these dogs love the water, the cold, and having things in their mouths. They are the most popular dog in the USA and are still used for hunting, although better known as companions. Their ‘eager to please’ temperament has allowed them to be used in a variety of roles, including rescue and aid to the disabled.
The American ‘everydog’, these dogs love to be kept busy all the time. They have a tendecy to chew if bored. They will put up with anything from children, making them the #1 dog in America (per AKC). They can be very active for many years, if given consistent exercise.
