 no. we've owned a few goldens, and he does not look like either. if  u can get a better pic with better lighting, i could tell you with about 95% certainty if he is or isnt

IDK, the nose shouldn't be red, but that doesn't mean he is not purebred. You can do a DNA test, I think its only like $50

You can't tell with looks alone. I have a mutt that is perfect for a lab. There can be slight variences that can make a mutt look pure, or pure look mutt.

Quoting tinkerbellbay:

i would say no his face looks a bit like a pointer more then a golden

 we had a golden who looked a lot like a irish setter, but we had his papers and he was 100% golden lol.

Whats more important is WHY are they rehoming him, and how is hes temperment and behaviour? Purebred dos not in any way mean he will make a good pet.

Quoting amanda357:

No. He is on craigslist needing to be rehomed. The owners say he is purebred and bought from a breeder.

Should I ask the breeder info? It isbt going to sway me from getting him if he isn't 100% but I would just like to know...


Quoting SnapIt:

Is there any kind of information about the parents to this dog? Where did the owner get the dog? Can you trace back to the parents?

Picture looks distorted and the legs look short.

I've worked at a vet for two yrs and I've seen many pure-breds. And your golden looks a bit of a mix. But its hard to tell with only this picture
