Chelsea the Golden Retriever

Dog Breed: Golden Retriever

Chelsea's mom says: Chelsea is a very rambunctious little girl! She is very small for a purebred golden, only about 45 pounds. We got her from a breeder when she was 6 months old. She was the last puppy left from her litter because she was too small to show, but my parents and I just wanted a family dog! When we first met her she was very hyper, and even now at 10 years old she is still quite a pistol! She loves wrapping paper, taking long walks, stealing shoes and socks, meeting new people, smiling, hugs, playing in the sprinkler, and even sleeping despite her seemingly endless amounts of energy. She's very good at doing tricks, begging for food, and being just plain cute! She also has quite a impressive vertical jump! I was 11 years old when we got Chelsea, and we have been best friends ever since. Being an only child, life would have definitely been very boring and lonely at times when my parents weren't around, but with Chelsea, there is never a dull moment in the house. She definitely has her quirks but is a wonderful and loving dog!
