Few dog breeds are as iconic, or as recognizable as the Golden Retriever. Characteristically gentle, intelligent, and eager to please, this capable breed is both easy to train and incredibly devoted to their owners.
Golden Retrievers are far more than friendly - they’re affectionate, loyal and delightfully intelligent. It’s easy to see why Golden Retrievers continually rank amongst the most popular dog breeds in the United States and the most popular dog breed in Massachusetts.
Initially bred as “gun dogs” for the purpose of finding and retrieving game, Goldens are a great choice for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, but they’re also a great choice for first-time dog owners and dog owners with children.
The Golden Retriever is the Swiss Army Knife of dog breeds - they are versatile, adaptable and come in handy in a wide range of situations. That’s why so many Golden Retrievers become service dogs, guide dogs and rescue dogs.
Golden Retrievers are friendly, affectionate and even goofy, but they know how to be serious when it’s time to work. Did you know that Roselle, a Golden Retriever guide dog led her blind owner, Michael to safety from the 78th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center after the 9/11 attack?
Few places are as friendly to dogs and dog owners as the great state of Massachusetts. That’s why it’s also one of the best states in the country to buy, rescue or adopt a puppy. The Golden Retriever Is the most popular breed in Massachusetts. It’s followed closely by the German Shepherd and the French Bulldog.
Whether you’re in town to find German Shepherd puppies for sale or to take your Golden Retriever on an outdoor adventure, you’ll find Massachusetts has more than enough dog-friendly activities to keep you busy.

Dogs must also be secured within a crate or cage, or properly cross tethered to the vehicle to comply with the Massachusetts transportation law regarding the safe transportation of animals.
What's more, even though the language of the law does not explicitly require dogs wear a seat belt, it does prohibit dogs from riding in the driver's lap, the front seat, or unrestrained in the vehicle.
