Not just two but three breeds are mixed up just to produce a Miniature Golden Retriever. These are the Golden Retriever, Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. Each of the mentioned breed holds a unique characteristic that makes up the desirable traits and looks of the new formed hybrid.
The word golden in its name may imply that it is indeed a golden pet. But because it is a mixture, there is a possibility for other colors to appear. In that sense, aside from cream and rich golden color, the dog may acquire a parti-color combinations that are white buff or red, or a mixture of black and white.
This type of dog is covered with a coat that is mostly similar to the original Golden Retriever. It is silky with a medium length on its body with a smooth quality over the head. It is usually feathering on the underbelly and some areas like the back of its legs and underside of tail. It may be flat or slightly wavy and generally dense.
The miniature Golden Retriever is one of the most sought-after family pet because of its numerous talents and inviting qualities. Some of the qualities that make it favorable to many are its being lovable, intelligent, well-behaved, energetic and charming.

In giving care to this breed, the owner must be able to deal with it adequately.
