Has anyone heard of a Short-haired Golden Retriever? A lady came into my grooming salon with her dog and said it was a Short-haired GR and while I did not want to insult her, her dog looked just like a yellow LAB! I have not found a single thing on the internet with a Google search for SHGR. I am wondering if anyone else has heard of this.

No, never heard of this style of golden. Perhaps it was a mix. Or perhaps their dog was under 2 years of age. Or maybe the dog was a rescue and shaved recently. Who knows? dog

The lady said it's a rare thing and that she got her pup overseas somewhere (I'm in the U.S.). She swore it was a SHGR. Anyway, I haven't found anything either. Thanks for the input.

no no no no, if her dog is a golden then he just had very very bad breeding in him.......my mommy dosent like it when people say they have short-haired Goldens.

She says it is like saying there are long-haird Boxers!

I actually used to own a short haired GR. I don't think it's a whole other breed, more just genetic traits. Both of my SHGR's parents had shorter hair, and they just passed the trait down to him, making his hair as short as any other short haired breed's may be.

Well thank you for sharing that Sugar. I was having my doubts that they exist. I think when it comes down to the bone, I think that its completely genes and breeding. I think a true Golden has long-hair but if it's short hair its not my place to say its not a GR.
