Hi, we just recently suffered the loss of our family dog. I am now looking for suggestions for a new dog. What I am looking for is for a breed of dog that has a great temperament and will be everyoneâ€™s friend. We expect to take him with us on our trips too. We are currently looking at Golden Retrievers but would like some input from your experiences. Here is what were looking for. Size â€“ Not larger than a Medium to Large Great temperament has to be good with kids and strangers Short to mid length hair So what do you think?
