Dogs

A jackal is any of four small to medium-sized members of the family Canidae, found in Africa and Asia. A fox is a member of any of 27 species of small omnivorous canids. The animal most commonly called a fox in the Western world is the Red fox (Vulpes vulpes), although different species of foxes can be found on almost every continent. The presence of foxes all over the globe has led to their appearance in the popular culture  and folklore of many nations, tribes, and other cultural groups. One of the first animal domesticated by ancient man, the dog has long been accurately described as “mans best friend”.  The social nature of these descendents of wild wolves makes them a desirable pet and playmate for humans of all ages. They are companions and protectors, laborers and lifesavers, for millions of happy pet owners worldwide.

Native to Britain, the Golden Retriever is one of the top five most popular breeds in the UK. Bred principally from yellow Flat-coated Retrievers and Tweed Water Spaniels in the mid-nineteenth century, Golden Retrievers were, of course, intended as gun dogs. Their dense, waterproof coats and long legs make them ideal for bounding into marshland or ponds to retrieve downed game.Although the Golden Retriever is a large and powerful dog, it can gently pick up a shot birds,  hares or other game in its mouth without damaging its quarry. Their gentle nature has made them incredibly popular family pets as they  are exceptionally good with children.
