Golden retrievers are one of the most popular, as well as one of the smartest breeds, and for our money the most beautiful type is the English Cream Golden Retriever.
For the most part, there is no such breed as an English Cream Golden Retriever. In fact, the name is used as a selling point for this type of Golden Retriever.
Most breeds from the Golden retriever family came from Europe, Scotland in particular, which means most of them have English lineage.
So, today there are no canine organizations that view the English Golden Retriever as a unique breed or variety of golden Retriever.
However, that hasn't stopped a number of Golden Retriever breeders from trying to register them as a separate breed in the US.
There are a few evident differences between the American Golden Retriever and the British Cream Golden Retriever concerning the body structure.
The key difference is the English type has a heavier, broader, and greater muscular body as well as their legs being more robust and shorter than their American cousin.
There are also some subtle differences in the region of their muzzle.
The American Golden takes on a more pointed and sleek look, while the English Golden Retriever, in appearance, is more square.
This square body structure is a major reason why English Golden retrievers are better at ring competitions than the American Golden Retriever.
From a psychological perspective, there's anecdotal evidence English Cream Golden Retrievers can be very submissive, as well as, easily intimidated when they're young. So you want to make sure they're heavily socialized at as early an age as possible.
Like other dogs, they're sensitive to your mood, which means you want to give them lots of love and lots of reassurance.
Their name alone should give you a solid idea on the color of what the coat looks like for this Golden Retriever.
The coat on these Golden will go from pure cream, to a slight touch of gold, to having a gold dusting throughout the coat.
There are English Golden Retrievers with a darker yellow or gold, however this is still a fairly rare combination.
Another interesting feature of their coat is that it's much thicker than the American Golden Retriever and it is also slightly wavy.
One last distinguishing feature is the eyes and nose of the British Cream Golden Retriever is they are completely black in color.
As we stated at the beginning, Golden retrievers are popular and one that's well worth your time researching is the beautiful English Cream Golden Retriever.
