The Golden Retriever breed was originally developed in Scotland at the estate of Sir Dudley Marjoribanks, later Baron Tweedmouth. The original cross was of a yellow male Retriever, Nous, with a Tweed Water Spaniel(now extinct) female dog, Belle. In 1868, this cross produced a litter that included four pups; these four became the basis of a breeding program which included the Irish Setter, the sandy-colored Bloodhound, the St Johns Water Dog of Newfoundland, and two more wavy-coated black Retrievers. The bloodline was also inbred and selected for trueness to Majoribanks' idea of the ultimate hunting dog. His vision included a more vigorous and powerful dog than previous retrievers, one that would still be gentle and trainable. The ancestry of the Golden Retriever is all sporting dogs, in line with Majoribanks' goals.
