The Golden Indian Dog originated from the mixing of the sweet natured Golden Retriever and the clever Native American Indian Dog. The Golden Retriever is said to have been developed during the Victorian era with the traits of the Tweed Water Spaniel, Yellow Retriever, Wavy-coated Retriever, Flat-coated Retriever, and the Red Setter. Lord Tweedmouth, a baron in Scotland, is often credited as being the main individual for breeding the Golden Retriever to a female Tweed Water Spaniel. In 1911, the England Kennel Club classified the breed as a Retriever – Yellow or Golden. In 1925, the breed was officially registered with the American Kennel Club but it wasn't until 1932 that it was officially recognized. The Golden Retriever is a popular family dog and has appeared in numerous Hollywood movies such as Air Bud and Homeward Bound. The Native American Indian Dog has been around for centuries. Originally used as babysitters, they were used to pull crates and carry belongings to families to hunt for food. The breed was documented in drawings dating back centuries and was often depicted as a wonderful breed. It is believed that the Native American Indian Dog has a similar heritage to the Dingo dog. The Native American Indian Dog is a combination of many unique breeds such as the common Indian Dog and even the coyote. In the mid-1990s, the breed was trademarked by Mrs. Karen Markel, who sought to achieve selective breeding to maintain the breed's intelligence, versatility, and longevity.
