The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is the official state Dog of Maryland. It is a very strong dog and stands about 26” high. Which is not all that big but with his large muscles and great amount of hair with an oily coat and good amount of fat to keep him warm in cold water he looks to be a dog of substance. The breed was started by breeding two Newfoundlands with other retrievers like the English-Otter Hound, Flat Coat and Curly Coat Retrievers. It was developed to work hard on land and in icy waters of the area by retrieving huge amounts of ducks. Coats are called, “dead grass”, brown or sedge. It is part of the Sporting Group and AKC recognized the breed in 1878. As of 2015 AKC shows it in the top 50 breeds at #42.
