It is believed that the Golden Retriever was bread from mixing many different breeds together such as the tweed water spaniel, which is now extinct, the irish setter and also many other "water spaniels" as well. A man called "Lord Tweedmouth" is said to take the credit for the development of the golden retriever. He wanted a dog that was loyal and kind but energetic with a love for water and also a dog that had a great taste for "retrieving waterfowl". Although the Golden Retriever was at first used primarily for hunting, and was not allowed in dog shows until the 1920's, over time they soon became a companion for families, hunting, and they also became good show dogs.
