13 Chesapeake Bay Retriever Chesapeake Bay Retriever The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a large-sized breed of dog belonging to the Retriever, Gundog, and Sporting breed groups.

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. ...more
