The Golden Chesabay is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chesapeake Bay Retriever and the Golden Retriever. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
Duncan the Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Golden Retriever is a super-loving, affectionate dog who swims for 2 hours a day! He also loves the go on bike rides along the beach of 4 to 6 miles each way. Photo courtesy of Dogs with Dave, a San Diego Dog and puppyTrainer.
