English Cream Retriever puppies (also known as English Crème Golden Retriever puppies ) are simply adorable! Although one might say that English Crème Golden Retriever puppies are a different dog than American Golden Retriever puppies, in fact both are really the same breed, with slightly different physical characteristics. The British standard of the "British Type" Golden Retrievers produces shorter, wider dogs, with a more stocky build and broader foreheads. The chest is slightly deeper, and these dogs have shorter legs, as well. These dogs generally stand between 22 and 24 inches at the shoulder; although they are slightly heavier, for the most part, as compared to American Golden Retrievers, there is no weight specification in the British standard. Eyes are round and dark as compared to American Golden Retrievers' slanted or triangular eyes.
Notably, the English Crème Golden Retriever's creamy color was not originally accepted by the British standard until 1936. Today, however, these beautiful dogs are highly sought after both in the US and other parts of the world. It should be noted that the British standard is used everywhere in the world except for the United States and Canada.
Beyond the physical characteristics, though, English Crème Golden Retriever puppies and American Golden Retriever puppies are basically identical in personality, temperament, intelligence, skill, and most of all, lovability. Take a look at what makes this beloved family pet so special as a "very, very British" English Crème Golden Retriever.
All Golden Retrievers' ancestors come from Scotland. In the mid-1700s, wildfowl hunting was very popular among the rich there, and the Golden Retriever was cultivated because it could retrieve from both water and land; this was necessary, because Scotland is densely covered with rivers and ponds. In the mid-19th century, a Lord Tweedmouth bought a yellow Retriever, a stud named Nous, and bred him with a Tweed Water Spaniel, Belle, to produce yellow crossbred puppies. Further crossbreedings with the Bloodhound and the Irish Setter as well as greater inclusion of the Tweed Water Spaniel produced the modern Golden Retriever. Although today, the Tweed Water Spaniel is extinct, its characteristics live on in the modern Golden Retriever--ultimately a gentle, trainable, courageous, and powerful dog that could do everything its master asked of it, whether in water or on land.
Original Golden Retrievers were accepted for registration by England's Kennel Club in 1903 with the description, "Flat Coats-Golden." With the first exhibition in 1908, the breed was officially recognized as, "Retriever (Golden and Yellow)." It was then recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club in 1927; in 1925, the American Kennel Club registered its first Golden Retriever.
The English Crème Golden Retriever has, of course, a cream-colored coat and is judged by the British standard. Red and mahogany are not accepted as coat colors. Interestingly, cream was not accepted as a color in the UK standard until 1936. Some felt that the original "yellow" Retrievers of the 19th century were lighter than today's true "Golden" Retrievers, such that the cream-colored standard should always have been included. Both American and British standards exclude all white Retrievers from show.
English Crème Golden Retriever puppies will usually grow to have some variation of a cream-colored coat. As compared to American Golden Retrievers, this Retriever is a slightly heavier dog and has a broader skull. The muzzle is deeper and wider, but slightly shorter. The coat can also be slightly wavier than most American Golden Retrievers. While we consider American Golden Retrievers to be "lanky," the English Crème Golden Retriever has a stocky, sturdy, and hardy appearance by comparison. The nose is usually black, the eyes dark and round. The English Crème Golden Retriever stands between 22 and 24 inches at the shoulder. No weight has been specified by the British standard, although the American Golden Retriever standard sets the weight at between 55 to 80 pounds; the English Crème Golden Retriever will be quite similar.
"Golden" Versus "Crème"
The English Crème Golden Retriever is one of the acceptable shades in the standard for the Golden Retriever; in general, any gold or cream-hued coat is acceptable with the British standard.
There is perhaps no more affable and easy-going a dog as the Golden Retriever in general, and the English Crème Golden Retriever follows suit with the rest of its canine "family" in this regard. Gentle, friendly, confident, and exceedingly kind, the English Crème Golden Retriever is absolutely amiable with strangers and family alike. Although they love their families and are loyal without question, English Crème Golden Retrievers, as with most Golden Retrievers, are ever at the ready for fun and socialization, and want to make friends with just about anyone they meet--endearing, but also makes them a very poor choice for a guard dog.
Your new pet is very gentle and trusting, and exceedingly eager to please; as such, you should truly treat him or her with kid gloves. Your new pet is extremely bright and will have absolutely no problem in obeying you; in fact, he or she wants to obey. Gentle guidance is all that's necessary; harsh words are disciplinary methods are never acceptable, and even the normally firm hand you have to take with most dogs is really not necessary here. Your gentle, patient canine family member could easily have his or her feelings hurt unnecessarily if you behave too harshly. Gentle and firm guidance is all that should be necessary for an exceedingly well-behaved dog.
English Crème Golden Retriever puppies from the start are very good with children (an excellent children-friendly pet!), and you should have no problem socializing your new pet around even very small children. These calm, gentle dogs seem to instinctively understand that small children can't always "help" their rambunctious behavior and will patiently put up with a little bit of rowdy play, although you should certainly step in to protect your pet from undue harm (even if it's unintentional) if your small children get too rough.
Because English Crème Golden Retrievers were specifically bred for hunting duties, they are exceedingly patient. They can sit quietly for hours, and love to work and especially to focus on a task they've been given. Be careful, though, because your very devoted pet will never complain even if he or she is overworked; that means that you have to pay attention to his or her physical needs and make sure to take special care of him or her.
Your patient, gentle, and very easy going English Crème Golden Retriever will do well in any environment, including an apartment. However, your pet is a very athletic and active, and should get plenty of exercise--including swimming and running. Golden Retrievers love the water, so your pet will be especially happy if you can give at least occasional exposure to water activities.
The English Crème Golden Retriever has a lifespan of about 10 to 12 years. Unfortunately, this gentle breed is prone to specific breed problems such as hip dysplasia, cardiac disorders, von Willebrand disease, which is a blood disorder, and eye defects. Cancer is also common with the breed. Working with a reputable breeder who will breed to avoid these characteristics as much as possible will minimize chances that your pet will have specific disorders.
The English Crème Golden Retriever has a coat that is easy to take care of. Your pet will have a smooth or wavy double coat that needs to be brushed and combed on a regular basis, particularly the undercoat. Golden retrievers shed heavily twice year, so you'll need to pay extra attention during these times. Only dry shampoo should be necessary most of the time for hygiene purposes, with an actual bath necessary roughly every two months.
