13Chesapeake Bay Retriever
These dogs were originally bred near the Chesapeake Bay by new settlers. The dogs would be trained to swim out into the bay and grab dead ducks floating in the water that were shot down by the hunters. The dogs have long, saggy lips so that the dog could easily retrieve the duck without puncturing the skin. These dogs have a coat like ducks that they just shake to immediately become dry. Chessies love to swim and do not rip up shoes or your clothes because they were trained to bring things to you, not kill things for you. So a chessie may bring you clothing or a dead lizard that they already found, not that they killed. These dogs can range from a near black color to a light brown color. They are very protective of their 'pack' and if you take one for a walk (beware: they are strong) they will lead in front, guarding. They will get up silently and check around the house if they hear a noise, and alert you if they think it is bad. They are very good with kids and older people as well. Also, they do not bite and may jump up onto your chest to lick your face. Ironically, these dogs, though bred to stay with hunters, are scared of thunder, fireworks, and noises like that. There have been many reported cases where the dog will jump into your lap and curl up until the storm is gone. They don't chase cars, but may try in their early stages as a puppy. With a stern, simple, "No", these dogs will obey anything. They love to swim, and when I say love, I mean LOVE. If they see a lake, chessies will do anything to get to it. Let them swim and play. These dogs should have large room to run in, and should be walked frequently. Do not wash them too much, or else it will ruin their coat. Their coat is special and does not need to be washed much. All in all, these dogs are brilliant. In diseases, they are known for heart worm and cancer. These dogs are good for outgoing families that live with a big backyard and are very friendly.
