Chesapeake Bay Retriever
The Friendly Cold Water Retriever.


The Chesapeake was "Made in America."  Following the
shipwreck of a British brig off the coast of Maryland in
1807, two rescued puppies resembling the Newfoundland,
one male the other female, were bred to local stock which
eventually lead to what has become known as, the
Chesapeake Bay Retriever or "Chessy".

It is a medium-large dog, possessing intelligence and a
bright, happy disposition.  Its thick, short, oily coat and
dense, fine wooly undercoat protected it when working,
and retrieving in the ice cold waters of Chesapeake Bay.
Noted for its fondness of children and bravery, several
Chessies have been honored with life-saving awards
for heroism in saving youngsters from drowning.
It excels as a hunting dog, a bird dog.
