Chesapeake Bay Retriever

We just learned about the type of dog the Powderpuff Chinese Crested Dog.

Another type of dog is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

This type of dog is known for their love of water.
They have been used for hunting, especially for going into very cold water.
Their fur is double thick and has an oily coat to keep them warm, they have a strong chest they can use to break ice to go retrieve ducks when hunting.

This dog is also the official dog of the state of Maryland.
