The history of the Golden Dox is not well-documented at this time. The Golden Retriever was initially bred due to its high intelligent and talent for agility, rescuing, tracking, and other traits. Lord Tweedmouth from Scotland took charge of breeding the Golden Retriever to a female Tweed Water Spaniel by the name of Belle.
In 1911, the Kennel Club in England recognized the breed as the “Retriever – Yellow or Golden”. In 1920, the Golden Retriever name was officially used. In 1932, the breed was officially recognized by the AKC. The Dachshund originated from Germany in the 15th century. At the time, the Dachshund was known as the “badger dog” due to his ability to trail wild boar, badgers, and foxes. The dog breed was also used to bolt cottontail rabbits in the 20th century. Over the course of the years, the Dachshund was refined to be a fearless and elongated canine that could dig into badger burrows. The original breed was smooth-coated and it is believed that the French Basset Hounds were the ancestors. In the 1800s, the breed began to be bred to be companions in Great Britain. They were favored by the royal courts in Europe. Eventually, the Dachshund was bred to be 10 pounds smaller.
In 1879, a dog breed standard was created and published. In 1885, the Dachshund was imported to the United States. In 1895, the Dachshund Club of America was founded. In the 1950s, the dog breed become one of the most popular companion dogs in the United States.
